Mention One (Or More) Thing(S) You Will Do To Morrow To Cope With Your Mental Health. Better Opportunities For Better Mental Health (May Be Small). #2

Recommended Posts

  1. I'm going to go to work in clean clothes!
  2. I am going to work actively against "dread" which makes my afternoon and evening so difficult. I think dread is just another form of worry....
  3. I hope to think of a third thing tomorrow

I accomplished 3 of my 4 goals I was going to accomplish today (everything except the food/shopping one), so let's see how this goes...

Complete a therapy session

Spend time playing guitar and drums

Buy food

Go on a bike ride

My therapist brought up to me listing everything one does in a day and marking whether they were for pleasure or "mastery" of a certain goal pertaining to depression, and three of those four would be considered "mastery" if completed, almost like how I feel 3 of the 4 I listed yesterday would be as such.

I am going to turn off my cell phone! Take that, annoying family people....

That's right. Take good care of yourself!

I liked that one! One has to think through why one has this or that goal.

For tomorrow I have no goals! Writing so makes me feel like a nut. :uh-uh: Well, It seems that I have to come back later this day and print my goal for to morrow! :rock:

So I'm back with some goals for tomorrow.

1) I will tell myself that I'm a wonderful person that have managed very much in life!

2) I will tell myself that I'm a wonderful person that have managed very much in life!

3) I will tell myself that I'm a wonderful person that have managed very much in life!

4) Buy grocery.

5) Do the dishes.

Awesome goals, friends. I am inspired.

Tomorrow, I am going to tell myself that I am a good person and doing a good job. Thanks, Rosegirl.

Today, I'm going to compliment people on DF who make me feel better about myself and life. Thanks, Rosegirl andrewfootos and Meirionne and solarflare and all the mods and everyone out there struggling to improve their mental health.

Tomorrow, I am going to continue not responding to mean people.

I´ve missed you, guys. Haven´t had the time to write much because I´ve been so busy and barely recovered from the flu. Had a long day as usual when I manage the movie theatre and had so much fun screening and teaching the children. Then a big reception with screening. I´m supertired, but it´s a good tiredness. My fd is still sick and is now on pencillin, but needs to perform as well.

It´s funny how you grow up in a family of performers and become one yourself, your children become performers again. I´ve been on a jury for the teen short films at her school, it was super fun and great working with the other parents.

There are so many festivals ahead at the movie theatre plus my other job at the TV-station. Work definately keeps me sane. I miss the exercises, but when I came home from work I went for a short walk. I even went to a dinner Tuesday night, and it was worth it! After weeks of flu, sinusites and colds...even the cats have been sick, :coopcray:but they greeted my outside in my garden when I came home. There is spring in the air, at last. :)

Tomorrow I´m going to challenge myself. I´m seeing my lawyer because of my finances. I have promised myself to try to put my feelings aside. I´m using yoga and CBT.

I will go out as soon as I get up and sit on my veranda for a while to enjoy the daylight. It´s now bright in the morning and only getting dark at 7:30 PM. The light is magical, it really gives you energy.

Sending all of you big hugs. :hugs:

1. I'm going to renew my efforts to take my day an hour at a time to reduce worry

2. I will look for ways to be positive with the kids: instead of saying "no" offer an alternative, even if I'm frustrated by the behavior

3. I will only hit the snooze button 3 times instead of 4, so I will not start my day running

Tomorrow and into next week I will:

- do laundry

- eat healthy salads at least once a day

- work on doctor spreadsheet and make calls. Need to do this to report to disability and to find new doctor.

- get some sleep. I have had many sleepless nights with severe anxiety.

Tomorrow is Sunday and I am going to sleep in with my wife. If she doesn't eat garlic at supper we might have a good time! ;)

I definitely need to look after myself tomorrow. Not entirely sure what practical steps this will entail, but hey, I recognise I need some self-care and that is a good thing.

Here is a hug from me, Shyboots. :hugs:

I feel fragile. I´m going through huge changes in my finances and even if it´s a relief, I feel very fragile. I feel like I´ve been hit by a car.

Those a positive changes, but I feel a bit raw.

Will take extra special care of myself tomorrow.

Coffee in bed, good movie tonight before I fall asleep.

Hugs to all of you here. :hugs:

Thanks Violet31 *hugs* back for you too, and here's to looking after ourselves today! I'm not expecting myself to get any proper work done today, have reached out to a couple of friends to say I'm not feeling so good to see what I can arrange by way of socialising...have bought a salad and fruit for lunch, nice and healthy, and prawns which are supposed to be good for mood, right?! Texted my hubby to say how I'm feeling so he can help out a bit too.

I'm going to make my car safer by getting brakes and tires even though I can't afford them---it will bring piece of mind to know I'm not driving on bald tires anymore. I'm also going to see if I can start a mower and hope the grass is dry. I have to be taking care of business to cope. Too much time with no human contact is not good.

Get enough sleep but still get up before 9.

Go out for a run.

This was my plan too. Got up at 8 but I didn't go for a run. I did go for a really long bike ride last night, though, so it's not like I fell completely flat on my face.

Tomorrow I'm going to go out to eat with my cousin who I'm very close with (this will be the first time I saw her since I moved), and get my license renewed. It's amazingly been about 4 years since I got it, which is crazy.

Couldn't really find a great route for running near this place, so I didn't run nearly as much as I wanted. Guess I'm stuck to exercising indoors. Got up at eight too, so it's all good.

Plan for tomorrow: Same as today, maybe do some meditation. Got a pretty major decision by the end of the week, so I'm just trying to get into a healthy routine and try not to push myself too hard.

There's actually a bike/running/walking trail right by my house, so it helps me out a lot. It stretches at least 10 miles, between part of the shore and some forest land, so it's really easy to exercise over here. I'm pretty lucky with that.

I tried to answer someone awhile back but it didnt work for some reason. Anyway to Andrewfootos - , yeah, I try to write down things to be grateful for but its usually when Im feeling good too. Makes me feel guilty when Im feeling bad!

A long bike ride sounds great! Havent ridden a bike in years, tried one and it seemed to turn short like the wheel in front was too close and made too sharp a turn. But its been many years so its probably just me. Anyway great exercise and good for mental health being outside too!!! Good for you!!

Tomorrow I will be a good friend to my husband and take a ride somewhere.

I got the OK to gradually take up some running again, after an injury stopped me for 5 months. I'm excited to be able to do some exercise again, I found it helped boost my mood so much. Just got to try a little at a time and use my special insoles and do my special stretched...!
