I try to including waking in my every day activities, which supports my physical health and mental balance, but I am not harsh with myself when it doesn’t come together ..... it’s regular and substantial, and that’s what matters.


I also focus on self-care to keep my mental and emotional balance under very stressful circumstances.

Re: Daily goals, motivation and check in

Just Joined, it’s great to read all of the replies as everyone has their life struggles, I feel encouraged by everyone being here and sharing. Thanks Everyone! - My goals are simpler now: 1. 8hrs Sleep, 2. Eat 3 meals every day, 3.Interact and converse with strong friendly, stable people. - It’s sounds simple but really it’s as though I’m on my knees picking up and reassembling the broken pieces of my life.

Re: Daily goals, motivation and check in

Hi and welcome to the forums @Cc77 .


It is often enough to just “have a day” when we are battling and / or in recovery. Just putting one foot in front of the other is an achievement when the going is tough.  Good on you .... you’re doing it !

Re: Daily goals, motivation and check in

Thanks, much appreciated. I will familiarise. It’s good to find a supportive community where people care about each other’s trials and battles. No one should feel alone. Good night.

Re: Daily goals, motivation and check in

Showered (first time in 2 days) ✅


Got myself to class ✅


Class was last-minute cancelled, so got to have breakfast (chia porridge) and coffee earlier than 1st break ✅


Thinking about starting homework assignments in the library with this time, but still feeling wiped out energy-wise.  Might just rest instead ♻️

My time management can really vary re productivity.  Some hours I get a heap done ... other hours not so.

Today we had a meeting, showed him washing machine again ... but all good ... keeping a chugging along approach is fine.  Happy people are usually a little busy.

 @Faith-and-Hope So good to have you back ... if rest is what you need ....
