extracting yourself from depression....

There's being depressed (over something) and then there's depression.
I'm talking the kind of depression where you are unable to motivate to do much of anything at all - lost interest in things you usu. enjoy;
have difficulty being productive at work.

Does anyone want to share anything that has been successful (other than or in addition to therapy and/or pharms) to extract yourself from it?
I'm looking for suggestions. In past experience with this there is no instigating factor. Exercise and proper diet work well, but at the moment I lack the vitality for initiating anything, including these lifestyle changes, that would help. I feel like I'm between a rock and a hard place. I'm taking time off work next week (1st vacation in so very long---no $$ to go away, but at least I'll be away from a toxic work situation); maybe that will contribute to some sort of improvement.
Thanks for your input.
