When you want to do something, you have to remind yourself. "What am I doing this for?" and answer yourself. This is all you, nobody is forcing you to do these things that can possibly change your future. It's all you, bud.
But don't worry too much, I know it's really hard to get it all done so you can do it step by step. Start with only 1 habit per day. Once you feel comfortable with doing it, do the other one. It's all about your mindset, once you change the way you look at the world, everything will change.
This is exactly what happened to me last year. I used to think everyone hated me, I used to think negatively. But then, I decided to change my mindset. I started giving compliments to everyone, simple compliments! Like "I like your hat!" or "You look great!" or "I love your outfit!". But if you're too shy to talk to them, that's okay! As long ad you are complimenting them in your head. Your mindset will start to change, because one day, you will think of those compliments to yourself too. One day, you'll look in the mirror and go "Wow, I.. actually look nice today".
Now I know, this sounds impossible, but trust me with this. Start giving simple compliments to everyone, especiallu your friends and family, or in your head. That's fine too. You can do it. I believe in you, take it easy. 🙂
and then sometimes writing a to do list on your phone dosent help
so you can do it on paper ,study’s have shown that writing it down helps you realese the worry’s away and the though from your brain to the pencil and the pencil to the paper helps a lot too
also try just writing your feeling down too
For the to do list, get a friend or a family member to do this with you, it helps big time as you can push eachother to make things done
Tray step by step each weak you do one thing more and put your favourite music on
I hope thet helps you I wish you luk 👍
– Second for every morning day and night routine make 3-4 major to do list.
-Include short walks, meditation and quick exercises to keep body functiong.
-Rather than random to do list make a list accordingly which makes it easier to tick after completion.
1) you are not perfect so why do we thing our goals have to be done perfectly?
2) make goals small and simple.
Instead of running a 5k when you are a couch potato make the goal to walk to the mailbox everyday for a week. Then increase to walk two or three house down in your neighborhood for a week. When you miss a day accept you didn’t do it today but go ahead and do it tomorrow anyway. He says the day after perfection is the most important day. That’s the day you decide to do it for “you”! Not a gold star. Not a perfect streak, not for all the things we usually think we need to do to get credit for doing a thing. You and your body are the ultimate score keeper and doing it counts even if it’s not every day in a row at first. You will get stronger and feel more like it as you go, unless (from Dr. Suess) “perhaps you don’t and then you won’t”. But each day is it’s own score keeper. Be kind and gentle with yourself as some days are harder than others. The thing that is important is you just keep putting one foot in from of the other. You will get there if you don’t give up. You are worth it so just do today what you are truly capable of and let perfection go and free you to succeed.
And also when you’re not in the mood to do anything just countdown from 5 to 1 and get up immediately.
Have a blessed day ✌️
A to do list is one thing, but those don’t give you a sense of what you want to do as effectively as you might want. My advice? Be positive that you know exactly where and when you’ll be working on your list, and do the high priority stuff first. Make a schedule for yourself. And hey, if you don’t finish your goals the first time, don’t beat yourself up over it. Just try again.
I would say firstly take ur time nothing can be done immediately even if u don't do the task today look forward to tomorrow. Cuz tomorrow is still a chance
And just push ur self a bit maybe well that's what I do, evertime i don't feel doing a task I remember how happy I was after that one time I did it and that gives me motivation to earn that happiness again by doing the task just like that other time when I was a little bit more energetic
And once u push ur self everyday one day u will want to do it without a hesitation cuz if u don't ur day will feel empty
Sending lots and lots of love, don't surrender u got this!
-before you go to sleep make a list with things you wanna do the next day ,
when you wake up , stop yourself from doing anything until you start your list , then take a 1h break , and repet it all over again , at the end of the day when you make the new list you will look back at the curent day and you will you Win that day , and be encoureged to do it again
To answer your question I'd say choose one thing that is the most important to you at the moment and work towards it. Make it your priority. Maybe it'll help. When I devoted myself to the action I wanted to finish the most my days started to lighten up bit by but each passing day. I hope it'll work for you to. Lots of love.
And surround yourself with happy and positive friends. The kind off friends that understand that you need a diferent kind of attention, and also, understand that your friends may not relate to your suffering and sometimes won’t be capable of helping
Until 1 day i was in a ancient male group ceremony wjere somebody told me "you pledge to support your 2 adolescent song, you pledge to visit your father more often. Maybe it's time for you to take more care of yourself."
Some time later that message kicked in. I started with 2 simple habits immediate when I got up. Drink water + stretch 1 minute.
I did this without adding anything extra for a few weeks, and only than started using fabulous to add more to that routine.
To conclude: 1. I needed to understand that if I don't take care of myself, no one will. 2. I kept my habit list small for a few weeks.
rather than looking at it as this big list, find what it is that you can do and feel comfortable right at that moment. remind yourself why you made a to do list, and why you’re trying to better yourself. do you have a specific goal in mind, or just trying to change your mind set? those little things really help, and have helped me in just the past couple weeks. best of luck to you!<3
Since humans all work so differently, there really isn’t just one simple answer that will benefit you, but here’s how I get motivation to check things off:
1) I make time for it – if you give yourself time to do those things, then your brain might guilt-trip you into doing it.
2) If guilt-tripping doesn’t work (which happens a lot to procrastinators like me), then maybe attach a reward to the end. Obviously, you don’t want to make the reward the habit, so after you get into a routine, you can slowly weed off that reward system.
3) And finally: add a streak system, but allow yourself break days (limit them, though, because then you’ll fall into the trap of “well, I’ll just do it tomorrow”).
I can’t really think of anything else, but hopefully you find this helpful! And I hope your anxiety and depression lessen over the years (same goes for the chronic fatigue and back pain).
Good Luck!! And believe on yourself!!
Start with 3 tasks a day for a week or two, then add on to it. I have learned that starting off with a few things a day helps me accomplish at least one of the 3. As for your physical pain, I would put yoga on my list.
Good luck buddy!
Example: ideal – stretch 15 min and do a 30 min workout; medium energy – stretch 5 min and 10 min workout, low energy – stretch 2 min.
On the other hand, try baby steps don’t get to many tasks at the beginning. For the first step is just to get you moving, no matter how small the steps are.
Finally, remember is just an app. It won’t replace medical help 🙂
Sometimes when you have anxiety and depression the simple tasks can seem imposible si celebrate each one even if it is just with a smile.
Good luck 🤍
If it is difficult to get up, change the number of tasks.
For anxiety i will surely suggest you to listen to calm music and have a cup of tea or hot choco (if you like it) or you can have a cookie too. Whenever you are feeling very much anxious or may feel having an anxiety attack then drop everything that you are doing, leave every thought behind and focus on your breathe, your breathing pattern and give yourself the butterfly hug(you can search for it on Google) and tell yourself the positive things like everything will be fine, it is not your fault, you are good, etc.
As for depression, i know you are a fighter and you will overcome it, i have faith in you. Just keep fighting, don't let that hope/ that light drift away from you. Till the time you can see the light that is a bit far away but you are able to see it, you have to draw yourself towards it.
Start doing some exercises
Don’t stay at home all the time ,go out and spend time with people
And don’t forget to visit the sea if you could 💙
I hope that makes sense and helps
If you can break your mind thinking from a place of, “I have to do more,” or, “I need to be my best,” then you will be able to focus on your life and your tasks.
Don’t feel shame for starting small… there are many who came before you and there are many who will come after you… simply start.
Here are a few tips:
•if you feel unmotivated to start- (1)take a deep breath (2)count to three (3) and just GO!
•when you feel like giving up: dig deeper and find/remember your 'WHY'. Why did you start this journey what is your goal… If it is strong enough it will keep you going.
•when you feel not good enough, pick up three accomplishments that you are really proud of… That will spur you.
So for example, if you are depressed and it's hard to get out of bed, back it up to something you can do while in bed. Breathe is one of the available tasks in this app, start with a short breathing exercises like taking deep breaths… Maybe start with 3 deep breaths per day and check that one off. Other tasks, you can start by giving yourself the goal of doing them just 3 days a week, whatever seems reasonable for your specific situation, don't try to overload yourself from the beginning, take it one step at a time and slowly build that habit… Don't set expectations either, like the habit will be built in 1 month, give yourself a longer timeframe that adjusts to your situation and never ever compare your progress to someone else's progress. Progress will be different from person to person because the struggle is different for each of us.
Don’t do all you want in one day
And be kind to yourself at the end of the day love your self for what you did and don’t blame yourself for what you didn’t
So that you build your habits to do what you have to do and what is most important for you!
Start tiny and talk positively to yourself. Stop focusing on where you want to be and how far from that you are but instead on the tiny successes of where you are at. It will build momentum. All the best! Go do one tiny thing on your list now.
Slowly you’ll do great and you will feel prouder than ever.
*hug from a stranger*
This way you can slowly gather all the habits that you want to accomplish.
I also recommend meditating, so that you might be able to control your emotions better, and alleviate yourself from any stress that you might have, or even help you sleep better.
but I guess it's a matter of time.
try making your do to list somehow reachable to your efforts when you find that you are smooth at it add a routine or two.
don't feel down if you can do tgem all.
just be honest with your self and your efforts and you will ripe the fruits of trials.
On there I also have all
The things u have but I promise u will
Get thru it I’m the power of faith
Make sure your items align with your goals too. If ypu don't care about the items on your list, it is harder to complete them.
For TODO list that do not fall in a routine (like a morning routine or an evening routine) it will be much harder. It is all about discipline, which may be hard to come by if you're suffering from pain and depression. Try to start simple as well. Maybe one item a day. Celebrate each time you complete an item, and don't be too harsh on your self if you do not complete the list. There is always another day!
I wish you the best of luck!
Hope it helps. Good luck. Much love.
Lots of love always and forever <3333 🙂

- What’s the best option for a healthy vegetarian breakfast for someone who doesn’t have much time in the morning?
- Got some favorite overnight oatmeal recipes?
- How do you just get out of bed and make breakfast without laying in bed for an hour?
- What is your favorite healthy and quick get-going breakfast?
- How long after waking up do you eat your breakfast?
- How do you account for mornings where you have too many other responsibilities? I have a baby, a dog, a spouse, and a job that sometimes starts way too early.
- Having trouble breaking the cereal habit. Any tips?
- What does Fabulous mean by a Great Breakfast? Are there certain parameters that can demote it to merely a Good or Passable Breakfast? I have muesli and sometimes beans and tomatoes on toast. Sometimes I wonder if the toast or muesli (which is not a pure protein source) bring down my score, and if I really should be checking this habit as Done. Thoughts?
- What do you do on days when you have to leave the house quickly?
- What should I try to eat on the mornings I have no appetite?
