Basically it gives you teeny steps to take when you feel bad. I found it in an article about alternatives. Examples might be addressing sleep loss, or dehydration - not a big cure by any means, but a step by step opportunity to do small things to feel better.
I'm always on the lookout for resources ranging from meditation youtubes for (whatever emotion or concern) to group events focused on happiness (I found one for later this week!) There are online chat meetings I sometimes use, too. And of course I'm lucky enough to have accessible doctors and counselors, plus medications and management techniques for my "conditions".
Still...Today was a tough day. I know we all have tough days. So I went looking for something "more" and here's what I found. (Forgive the language in the title!) youfeellikeshit.com/ actually is a little bit different.
It won't fix you, but it will gently give you things you can do that may help a little.
And that's what I needed today, after "a failure, bad news, and the re-emergence of depression". At least I can identify what's up and take steps to help it out... some outdoor chores, a couple appointments coming up, and some "self forgiveness" meditations are on my list.
Take care of yourselves, and if you want to try the link with the silly rude name... maybe it will do you some good. It interrupted the bad feelings this evening for a short while. Maybe someone else will like it. OR not.
Attached is a picture of where I'm going tonight to do outdoorsy chores for an hour or so. Almost no people.
That is beautiful and good advice.
Depression is an insidious thing. Many people have it even when they have what is considered a wonderful life envied by their friends.
It can be overcome. Easy to say, sometimes a challenge to do though.
I do agree, and appreciate your saying it the way you do.
