You probably are aware if you read my blog that I suffer from mental health issues, mainly depression and anxiety related.
It appears that I seem to take a lot of energy every day to try and lead and some sort of existence in my life.One of the problems is that I have days where I just cannot get motivated or I just walk around feeling meh.
The days when I really have to force myself to get up and carry on with day-to-day living.I think it’s one of the hardest challenges you face if you have depression.It’s lack of incentive and desire to do anything that is the trouble. So if you like me and have days like this then I’m going to tell you some of the ways I find helpful to ease the pain and to get out of that funk.
The first thing is to step away from social media because that can suck up all your energy especially if you have a habit of comparing yourself to other people. Just remember that we all on our own journey and what you see is not necessarily what is happening in someone’s real life.
I find that if I have a hot drink and some breakfast and take him half an hour to have a relaxation without the pressure that can help too.
Having the main to-do list and then focus on one or two things to do off that list eases the day ahead. I don’t then put pressure on myself but if I get a couple of things done then at least I have achieved something, then I won’t be so hard on myself.
instead of sitting dwelling on your thoughts and your feelings doing something to distract yourself away from thinking can be really helpful and give you a fresh slate to think about something different.
I hope this has helped you is there anything that you find helpful to get you out of the funk I’d love to hear your suggestions.
