"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."

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.

5). Feelings of pessimism and self-depreciation-

Remind yourself of things you have aceived in the past. List these and your abilites and assets. A depressed person tends to see everything through dark glasses. These lists of positives will help. Also ask your friends what they think of you. It is bound to be better than you think.

6). Loss of appetite/ desire to loose weight-

If you have a lose of appetite and consider yourself as a good weight for your frame, then pamper yourself with the focus you enjoy. If you are wanting to loose weight, follow the healing laws of nature and make a goal each day.

7). Social withdrawal-

Make an effort to be with people even if you do not feel like it. Join in some group activities like our Prayer Families. You will fell better the next day. 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.
