How to do this? I don’t get it. I keep trying. I keep trying to get myself back on track and out of this depression. This is an incredible fight – and it is absolutely exhausting. I am doing everything that I know how to do to get back to a functional, productive state…and I keep backsliding. It is so frustrating.
I need to eat better, and drink less coffee. I need better sleep – and I think both of those will help with the third. It is certainly harder to stay positive when you are tired. And when you know you’re not taking care of yourself.
I need more exercise and more time outside. A little bit of sunshine might help as well (I do have to watch how MUCH sunshine, but some would be good). I’m going to go for a long walk in botanical gardens today. That is a good first step.
I need to focus on gratitude again. I think I have lost sight of how much I do truly have to be grateful for; I have problems, but they could be so much worse.
