Mental health can completely wreck your daily routines – whether it gets in the way of your job, your hobbies or your social life. You cancel plans, stop going to the gym, give up on your side hustle. Everything seems pointless when your brain is telling you that you’re not worthy to do any of it.
When depression and anxiety have completely taken over your life, it’s hard to recognise where you are going with your life, heck, it’s hard to see what the next day will look like and whether you’ll be able to get there.
Believe me when I say, hitting the bottom isn’t the end for you. You can start to climb up again. It just takes some time to actually want to.
When you get to that point, it’s overwhelming. How can I get back to that person I was? How can I start up all the things I let go? How will I tackle all this as well as continue to look after my mental health?
Depression and anxiety makes things seem impossible. It makes small tasks look like mountains, and big tasks look like a mission out of space.
Baby steps are key, and there are things you can do that will help you feel up to the challenge. Or at the very least, make you feel a little better and a little more inspired.
