Each day, we have activities we must accomplish. When you live with depression, it is often hard to keep track of the responsibilities you are required to achieve. This may mean you need someone to check in with or to create a detailed list.
You may start the morning by writing down exactly what you need to do during this day. If you check off each finished activity, it helps to create accountability and structure.
The added benefit of creating a checklist is to see what you accomplish. Many report that they feel happier knowing that they have completed several tasks and made positive progress. If you do not finish an item on your list, you may make sure to work on it tomorrow.
