You have to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.
I like this saying very much. Especially in regards to depression. When we’re having a rough time, the last thing we need to do is go bed unsatisfied. Mornings are usually rough for depressed people. So planning the night before really helps.
What can you do this morning to make sure that tonight you’ll go to bed with satisfaction? It doesn’t have to be big. Just something that you can look back on and feel good about before you close your eyes.
I’m not very good at this myself sometimes, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t good advice. There’s been so much going on in my life, I haven’t had to plan anything.
I have a best friend who is recovering from depression. The pills are finally starting to work. But mornings have been very rough for her. I can remember that feeling of not wanting to get out of bed in the morning. Every once in awhile I feel like that even now but I know what to do.
Force myself to get up and MAKE THE BED!
I can’t emphasize the importance of this singular step when you’re depressed. It’s not an easy step when you’d rather stay in bed and avoid facing the world. But the world is going to have to be faced at some time or another. There has to be that one day when you start to get better. Why not choose today to start on your road to recovery?
God bless and have a good day.
