Good tips Gerrerd. If we could do all this though we wouldn't be suffering from depression or anxiety. I think most of us are aware of healthy ways to live but the problem is finding the motivation to do them. Now if you could post how to find motivation...... x

Yes motivation. So easy to say but when you get to the actual doing part. Sigh it goes down the drain. I don't got any either.

When i was in deep depression no motivation i sat for hours and hours, day after day listening to wayne dyer, Tony Robins and many more, until things started to change and i started to come round. Very dark times.

Watch wayne dyer progs on you tube, Tony Robins progs are very good for motivation. Nightingale conant progs hundreds of them are good for motivation. Quotes are good for motivation. People on here who are trying to help themselves are good for motivation I could go on. Seek and you will find. It does not come to us we have to put the effort in. Hope this helps people.
