Depression loves when you sit around- push back!

It goes against every instinct when we're depressed or feeling down, but simple physical activity and staying off the couch is far more powerful than we think. Like with a lot of things, the simple, unsexy advice we've heard a million times is often the most effective.

When we're questioning our very existence the impact of household chores or a walk around the block can seem pointless. But the alternative is the most fertile environment for depression you can create.

Make a statement that even though depression has stolen today, you're still going to do the things you need to do because you know a better tomorrow is coming!

Why you shouldn't always fight insomnia

Insomnia can be brutal and is obviously unhealthy long term. There are many causes and even more solutions, but sometimes insomnia can be a deeper part of us trying to break through.

Logically, our first reaction is to seek relief through medication or other methods. But avoiding those sleepless nights of deep introspection might cut us off from revelations and insights our soul is trying to force us into.

Always prioritize sleep in the big picture, but don't be afraid to swim with insomnia instead of fighting it for a little while and see what happens!

Exercise the "discipline muscle" every day!

A strong sense of self discipline is something that comes naturally to some, but for the rest of us, we struggle to get over the top and just do it when trying to make big changes.

It can suck when that's our default reaction to something we don't want to do but know would be good for us, but we often fail to make the connection between failing to break through and the many smaller decisions we make.

All day long, we have opportunities to exercise the response we have- like "fight or flight", we can condition ourselves to have a different response by being disciplined with seemingly insignificant things like making the bed or returning an email.

They may seem pointless, but we can carve out different pathways in our brain by just doing them without thinking. When it comes time for the big stuff, you'll have a better chance of doing the same!
