From confinement to curfew, how can philosophy help us in the face of the ambient depression?

As the periods of confinement and curfew follow one another, a certain weariness sets in. A gloom, even a depression, accentuated by the permanent uncertainty in which our daily lives are now plunged. According to surveys conducted by Public Health France, the prevalence of depressive states has more than doubled between September and November 2020.
