Hi Asi,

Im sorry you are feeling this way. Exercise is so important to our mental health. It sounds like you know what you need to do, exercise and work on the program, but you can't find the motivation to do it. When depressed motivation declines greatly. Lack of motivation can keep people from working on themselves and then they stay depressed. When depressed, its important to act even without motivation. Set small goals. For example, read two pages of the program a day and go for a walk for 15 minutes each day. Reward yourself when you reach your goals. Increase your goals as required.

You deserve to take care of yourself now. Your mother may say you are wrong a lot. You can counter that and self parent yourself. You are exactly right about what you should do about your mental health. You have the wisdom and knowledge to take care of yourself. That is awesome. What small goals can you set today?

You're not in this alone.

Hi, I had a problem around 6 months ago and I had to stop exercicing. Always I got into deep depression when I dont exercice. Im not having strengh to start again. Im just doing repetitive tasks, at the weekend I stay on bed watching youtube or go walk on shopping.

This is being hard to do the first step on changing my routines.

Also Im starting sometimes this program, and I dont continue doing it, IM always having to find strengh to do things, so I dont continue them, sometimes I just dont have enough strengh.

My mother always tell me my decisions are worng, even in the smalest things like were I decide to lunch or dinner. Im an adult now, it does not impact me now, but I imagine what that done to me.. I leaved my first 20 years of adult life, thinking I was always wrong, so I ended up doing what everybody wanted me to do, putting myself in sometimes potential dangerous situations and relashionships.

I feel like a zombie with no life. I dont know how to entertain myself when IM just with me
