I like to write stories or songs. I also like to just journal sometimes, it lets you talk about what’s bothering you without needing to see a therapist. I can’t think of any good tips, but just write a story or song one day. It takes your mind off of what’s going on to focus on what comes next. I like it :slightly_smiling_face:

sleep sleep and more sleep


When I can I work on my books. One of my favorite things in the world is identifying plants. My second favorite is learning how to do things the old fashioned way.


I suck when it comes to expressing myself artistically or creatively. But I think creativity comes in different forms. I rather study a math proof than write a haiku.

Maybe I would benefit if I challenged myself in those areas? I think my verbal reasoning has gone through the toilet due to mental illness.

I enjoy reading articles on philosophy. I like reading biographies and books about physics.

I’m supposed to be reading Beautiful Mind and How Not To Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking.

As someone with low energy, I enjoy walking.

Activities that make me feel good include

Writing and promoting my book.
Playing and performing piano
Interacting with my cat
Making love with my wife

I know cigarettes are bad but I heard lots of sz like to smoke

Reading, writing, drawing, playing guitar. I also used to make jewelry and I want to get back into it. It was very therapeutic for me.

I like fishing. One of the few things that makes me happy.

I drive around. Drink lattes, go on this site, smoke cigarettes

How about listening to songs that you like?

Sleep. I get all I can. If I could sleep more I would.
