Low mood and depression tends to kill our energy, and our socializing and makes us focus on the negative
As we disconnect and stop doing things we like, we spiral
Therapy approach: we push connecting, doing things we like and doing things that affirm our values.
List some simple five-minute activities you enjoy <- do one every day List some one hour activities you enjoy <- do one every week
Either schedule for these and tick them off - to get instant rush of reward
OR put the strips in a jar and pull them out at random once a day
Follow the plan, even if you're not in the mood
If after a few weeks you're not getting a boost, or you find you continue to spiral, talk to a mental health professional. I work internationally, so feel free to email me
