Depression is a hard battle but not impossible to beat.

Everyone deals with depression differently. Just because your father still finds it difficult to cope with, does not mean you won't find a way either.
Have hope and keep fighting against it.

Doing yoga has a number of benefits.
It would boost mood,reduce stress, reduce insomnia and help you to relax as well.

However, it would not directly help you to motivate yourself to work towards your goal of pursuing your phd. That kind of motivation has to come from you.

That being said, you should know that everyone has phases where they're not at their best emotionally, and this might affect their performance.
So don't beat yourself up too much. It happens and it's normal.

But it's important to pick yourself up and keep working towards your goal.

The only way to do it is to actually work at it until it's done.
Your hard work will surely pay off.
Hope this helps.
All the best and take care :)
