How do you get motivated?

Lately I’ve been having hard time getting motivated and wanted to know how other people do it.

I remember the phrase "Just DO it."
Or, I’ve done it before, I can do it again.

Fear and anxiety can help. Just think how bad it will be if you don’t do it :smile:

This doesn’t really do much for me but it’s funny.

I’ve been trying to motivate myself to get off my chair and lay down for a nap, and I’ve been unsuccessful. How sad is that? I can’t even motivate myself to take a nap? My chair is so comfortable, though.

As I was typing this a text came through from my friend. Maybe I can motivate myself to make the long drive to his house, for the sake of getting out and doing something today.

Is your lack of motivation due to depression?

I don’t know. It’s hard to say if it’s depression or negative symptoms but, yeah, probably depression as I have been feeling down lately.

My providers think it’s depression for me but I don’t feel depressed.

I write down a list of things to do sometimes. That helps.

My therapist said I should make a list and structure my day.

that’s what my therapist suggested too, i try to remain structured and on task but sometimes its hard so i put tasks into a scheduler app and it helps to make a to do list on it

I’ll do that. Thanks.

It’s antipsicothics that make you unmotivated because they block the dopamine

practice doing things you don’t want to do

1nce a day at least

skip the feeling

sometimes do it later

sometimes get help
