Sometimes for me it is Just Do It thing. If I keep coming up with reasons why not to I will never leave home. The only thing to fear is fear itself.
Now I am doing good today but on another day my answer might have been different.
Kitt, Moderator: Anxiety, Panic & Depression *~*
When I hit a big low ...just getting out of bed is a struggle -aaargh - hate that...however, it has to be done - sometimes it takes me two or three times to do stuff like going to town -sheesh - finally get there - and find myself sitting in the carpark for ages, pretending to be waiting for someone lol until I pluck up the courage - but you know what, in the end it comes down to self praise for even the smallest things done.
I always find that writing a list of things I wanna do is a good thing too..tick them off as you go..each day being easier - as you cannot go back to square one coz you have already been there eh
This thread is a really great idea. So many people struggle with motivation... even those without depression.
For me, motivation comes from reward. I have to have a goal which I want to acheive. Motivation to go to work comes from money. Motivation to do housework is the thought of sitting in a clean house and motivation to get out of bed it the idea of how bad I will feel if I waste the day.
I am new to this site. But I find it is a great community of very interesting people.
Awesome thread, what gets me going is the competitiveness - if others can do it, So Can I
I am no flat tire so get off my bum and just do it. I will survive.
Hugs guys..........your all the best.
