Goals and Mental Illness


New member
It’s been very challenging to stick to my own goals while also balancing a bout of depression that makes me want to lay in bed all day. So I like having this forum as a way to share my goals and find more motivation to keep up with them!

This week I want to:
-attend at least 3 yoga classes
-write at least 20k words of my newest novel
-study 2 hours per day for my first actuarial exam (starting Tuesday when the textbook arrives)

Not super fun or anything, but there you go!

I've had some issues with mental illness that have deterred me from my goals too, it really is a master of getting you to lay in bed all day, or want to at least. But I've tried to keep a positive outlook on the situation, and I've found that setting goals and making plans with those goals really help with achieving them. Best of luck with your goals!

Thanks! Setting goals is key. Scheduling things into my calendar with clear timelines is also key. I feel better when I can accomplish even small tasks according to what I planned.
