It took me three months to fully clean my room, but now it only takes about ten minutes a day to keep clean. Have you heard of executive dysfunction? I get it a lot in my depressive episodes, and as soon as I start looking for things that need doing, I see too many that I feel paralyzed even when I want desperately to do those things. One of my big motivators is to shock myself out of it by shouting ‘screw it, let’s do it!’ until I adrenaline myself up enough for a burst of energy. Blasting classical, Latin, or metal music helps once I’m up and at it.
I am also a thing-er. I’ve struggled with depression for a while now and sometimes life gets so overwhelming. I know that my house is a wreck and I’ve got a million things to do but it’s too much to even think about. I get so stressed and just want to give up and go back to bed. Last year I decided to do one thing a day. Then I moved to spend 30 minutes a day doing 1 thing. Next is 30 minutes twice a day doing 1 thing.
