>>4006>I don't even know what I want
Then start by figuring that out. What kind of thing have you got a lot of enjoyment from doing? Drawing? Programming? Playing music? If you cant think of anything, what have you daydreamed about doing in the past? Exploring? Making films? It doesn't matter if it seems totally unattainable at the moment, just think of something.
>I want to do stuff but I can't even bring myself to start
The first step is to just put yourself in front of the thing you want to do. If you want to draw, crawl out of bed, get a pencil and put yourself in front of some paper. It sounds obvious, but if you don't start like this then you will spend all your time thinking about doing stuff instead of doing it.
For general methods of feeling better:
- Do some light exercise everyday. You could try one of the more meditative martial arts like tai chi.
- Listen to some nice music that doesn't perpetuate your gloom.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ScquRuRIyEhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPC6SZeYT_s
- Grow plants in your room. There are lots of plants that are good for increasing air quality, plus aromatic plants that can reduce depression (just do your research to make sure the plant/s you use are helpful, as some plants will reduce air quality). A side effect of this is it will mean you have to let sun light into the room, which is also good for mental health.
- Take walks. I think it's best to do this either very early or very late in the day, preferably in the rain, as this means that there will be less people and a nicer atmosphere.
