Four Ideas That I Find Helpful, Part One

A schedule / checklist / to do list / etc.

I’ve written about this before, but awhile back, I was on “the Mighty” (a mental health site, that I am 50/50 on whether I still like).

There, I interact with several people with mental illnesses, asking questions and responding in kind.

One day, I think I asked a variant of the question, “what has been the most important component to your successfully managing severe mental illness?”

Of all the responses I got, I enjoyed the one that highlighted having a schedule!

For me, I already know that I can’t just summon up the energy required to experience a full day of activity.

I just cannot!

So, a few months ago, I said to myself, “What can I do?”

And, that started my working on all the things in a day, that I would love to do if the energy was there.

Hence, the schedule!

It is still evolving and right now it is a checklist of things I can do in and around my home, and I found that just having these items somewhere accessible (whether I got to them or not), has proven helpful to me!

In order for me to even do a third of the items (and have the energy to follow through), I need to sleep 8-9 hours… first and period!

Restful sleep is so very important!!!

What sorts of things do you do daily, that make you feel better?
