It might not seem like a big deal, but when you struggle with depression, even the smallest task can be overwhelming(sounds like a commercial but it’s really me). As a person who has often felt a lack of motivation, I was pleasantly surprised to have some energy this afternoon and a desire to tidy up. So I thought about cleaning my office but seeing as it’s my clutter ground zero, I decided on something small for starters.
The junk drawer in my kitchen has been collecting odds and ends for about seven years-and it showed. So I pulled it out, dumped it on the table and got to work. It only took me 45 minutes! And it was incredibly gratifying to accomplish something. And small tasks provide big satisfaction, hopefully leading to more energy and desire to sort through the clutter that has taken over my house.
