When you’re feeling depressed, it can be a challenging time. Here are some things to remember when you are not up to par.
Honor your feelings. Accepting and not dismissing them will help you take action. Be extra kind to yourself. Reflect on what you need at any given moment, and try to give that to yourself. Know that what you are going through right now will not last forever.
Don’t “Should Yourself”. The worse thing you could do is to judge yourself harshly and look at what you are not doing, rather than the kinder thing, which would be to see how far you’ve come. You have accomplished a lot. Take inventory of all you’ve done.
What have you put on the back-burner? We don’t feel good about ourselves when we avoid something we know we should be doing. Look at what you would like to do that you may have pushed aside. This could be the time to resurrect it.
