Get out of bed
Have a wash each day and brush my teeth as i've never been good at that.
To work out (or atleast have some movement) everyday, and eat a bit better over all.
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.
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.
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.
To change and improve what I can change and to keep being positive not matter what.
To sleep better.
To draw more.
To enjoy life more.
I’m continuing to try so hard with cbt. I am refusing to harm myself today. I want to get better. I’m trying so hard. I’m trying.
I want to have a shower today, and to brush my teeth.
I want to have a shower, and go to bed earlier. And maybe think some kinder things about myself.
