Depressed and Need Ideas for Motivation
I struggle with depression and have for all of my adult years. I am 41 now. I have a husband and two young children. My current struggle is getting motivated. I know that life would seem to feel better if I could motivate myself to do tasks that are good for me in the end, like getting exercise, doing household tasks, taking medications regularly, getting up early so I have enough time to get ready for work without rushing, etc. (I could go on and on.) What I’m looking for are ideas of tricking myself into doing healthy lifestyle changes – everyday tasks, so that they will become good habits to build on. Does anyone have tips and tricks that have worked for them?
