I've posted before about how I am always late to work, but I haven't really explained the reason. First of all, I have never been a morning person, so I've always spent the morning being angry that I'm awake. However, I was always able to get up when I was supposed to. Now I can't do that anymore. No matter what I do, when my alarm goes off in the morning I just want to stay in bed. I have no motivation to get up....not even when I know that I'm going to be late for work. I can't quite explain what goes through my mind, but it's a mix of wanting more sleep and wanting to avoid having to go to work and pretend to be a normal and functioning human being. Perhaps this is more anxiety driven, but I think that lack of motivation is related to my depression. It usually takes anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours for me to get up after my alarm goes off...if I even make it out of bed at all.
How do you combat the lack of motivation and not wanting to get out of bed? I'm desperate for advice because this is causing me to feel even worse about myself than I already do.
