Do you lay too much in bed?

Usually, when I´m not doing something (which happens most of the time) I pass my time laying in bed; watching videos, reading the internet, or even eating. I´m used to it, but I guess I really need to incorporate exercises into my routine.

If I forget to, or just don’t take my caffeine pill, I spend a lot of time sleeping in bed. Caffeine is darn near a necessity for me to function to a great degree these days.

I do my best not to be sedate and get up and move around. I have osteoarthritis in my lower back and being sedate just makes it worse.

I lay in bed til around 2 pm then I go to the couch til 5 pm and 5 pm I go back to bed.

In bed I’m on my phone n drinking coffee and tea .

I lay or sit in bed under blankets because it’s warmer n more comfortable.

I exercise half a hour some days and a hour two days week.

Rest of the time I’m laying down or sitting.

I pass my time in bed a lot too. Reading, watching YouTube, checking the internet…i normally cant nap on my Invega, Prozac, and Lamictal, but i can get lazy. When sitting up in a chair with ottoman gets to be a chore, i know i have issues! Lol

I do a mile workout four days a week or so, but other than that, im pretty sedentary.

Yeah laying in bed has to do with the lack of motivation. Hopefully new meds solve that. I feel like im just wasting my life away. But im too cognitively impaired and dont have energy.

Yeah I spend way too much time in bed, but these days I’ve been sitting at my desk more and more so that is an improvement. I give credit to the wellbutrin for that.

If you can post here you’ve got enough cognition to go for a walk.

You have enough energy to complain about things.

Lol yeah i do go for a half hour walk a day and i do go to work once or twice a week 6 hours a day. But my cognitive ability and motivation are no where to near to what it was pre schizophrenia. My memory is terrible, my ability to concentrate is terrible.

You’ll be amazed how much is still there. Don’t wait for a magic med to fix everything. Push yourself today and every day to move that dial. You may be very pleasantly surprised with the results.
