Super short tips and tricks for ADHD and / or depression

I'm struggling today with both. The ADHD makes searching for help a little more difficult than normal. Can you give me (really short) one liner suggestions for making it through? Mostly focusing on being productive, and coping strategies, but also maybe ways to be kind to oneself.

Examples might be:
Pomodoro it - 15 minutes on, 5 minutes off.
Mindfulness - notice the emotion, name it, and accept it.
Take a brisk walk.
Do math in your head - double numbers until you lose track. Then try the Fibonacci sequence.
Listen to this
Soak in some Hyperbole and a half.
At the risk of breaking Askme rules, can you put your answers in separate responses? I'm having trouble with paragraphs right now.
Maybe one day, when I'm better than I am now, I can make a nice little PDF to swipe through on my phone for days like these, which shows each one.
Sorry if I'm not making sense to you - I'm not making sense to me.
