    • Try to sleep in a decent hour (currently I'm failing at this but last night I slept past 9 so that's something)
    • Wake up before noon.
    • Eat properly.
    • Try to keep myself optimistic, or at least my thoughts.
    • Push away any sign of negativity that either comes from the news, or the net, or from people.
    • Study properly.
    • Write something even if it's short to keep my thoughts assorted.
    • Bathe everyday properly.
    • Take my meds once a day.
    • Talk to someone here if I'm staying under the blanket for too long.

    - Get some sunshine
    - Write a chapter of the story I’ve been working on (for a while; depression makes it hard to write it, sometimes I don’t work on it for weeks, and other times I write multiple chapters at once. Nevertheless, it is actually progressing, even if it is slow, so I am proud of myself for that)
    - Find a reasons to want to get up in the morning
    - Go to bed before 12

    For a few weeks now I have really tried hard to stop the negative thoughts , and inject with something positive. Some days it’s hard, but , you know... it does help. I don’t feel as awful. In fact, for the better. I’m glad , and am going to keep trying to do this.

    I want to have a shower, and go to bed earlier. And maybe think some kinder things about myself.

    Self care goals:

    1. Pills (urgh)
    2. Bath
    3. Dressed

    these are necessary and I don't skip them unless I am really bad off

    working on goals related to eating, and exercise, have already started walking whenever the weather allows and I know it makes me feel better.
