Hi joy seeker,
Welcome to the HealingWell Depression forum. I am so happy that you have joined us. I think a huge effect in life is learning to take it one day at a time. You woke up today and were still upset about missing a meeting yesterday and that caused you to miss church today. You are letting things in the past effect your future. You have to put tomorrow behind you. And start from scratch the following day. It takes time and practice. But you can master it. I know that you can because you are trying. When we dwell on things, it causes us to not be in the now. And things go wrong because we aren't paying attention to what we are doing at that particular time. Practice being in the now. In just that moment. I just went through this because I had a dental appointment. For a week I dwelled on that. I had so many accidents, dropping things, knocking things over, by not paying attention. Now that it is over, I feel better. But I was even doing it subconsciously.
Maybe take a little walk or something. It is suppose to be warmer for a few days. Even if it is only five minutes, it helps you to feel better. The most important thing that works for me, is if I don't feel like doing anything, I allow myself that. And I don't feel guilty about it .
Keep trying. Keep working on the therapy.
