Say the affirmations to yourself many times throughout the day. Take a look at the following affirmations and put them into practice immediately.

"I accept full responsibility for the shape my life has taken." "I need not fear all of my own truth, powers, fantasies, wishes, thoughts, and dreams." "I acknowlge that reality is not obligated to me; it remains unaffected by my wishes or rights." "I give without demanding appreciation though I may feel I deserve it." "Choices and preceptions in my life are flexable, not rigid or absolute." "I am happy as I do what I love and love what is loving."

SUGGESTIONS FOR SELF-MOTIVATION & SELF AFFIRMATIONS

1). Low sad mood-

All depressions have a daily cycle. Generally, the worst period is morning. If so, try to do things you enjoy or routine tasks that will keep you active during the low period. Remember that depression eventually goes away by itself even if untreated. our mood will change and it will change even quickly with help you are receiving. Take note what events or feelings seem to trigger the low period and seek someone to talk them through. Follow the natural healing laws of nature (www.meetministry.org).

2). Sleep difficulty-

Never remain in bed once you are awake. Going over and over troubles in your mind deepens depression. Start an activity immediately. Also ask your spouce or a friend to company with you. If safe take a walk outside in nature once in mornings and again in evenings.

3). Low energy-

Re-examine your chores. Save some important ones for yourself but assign some to others in the household. Drink your recommended amount of water (8-10 cups) a day.

4). Neglect of personal appearance-

Get dressed immediately on arising from bed. Keep your clothes and personal hygeine clean and refreshing. Buy some new or different clothes, and get involved in physical exercise. These activities all help you feel better about yourself.

Be open and honest with others, inviting them to know you better and you know them better. Fear is usually the reason people withdrawal socially, so find out what that fear is, then ask yourself if it is worth the seperation you are experiencing. You can be content by setting up self-boundaries that will determine how "close" another will be with you.
