Nobody can do everything! Why not make a list of everything you feel you “have” to do. Then think…

What needs to be done?

How important is it?

Can I do it later?

Can anyone help?

Keeping up with the ‘boring’ things like paying bills and food shopping is important. Sometimes there are things that need to be done because of deadlines and appointments, but sometimes there are things we feel we need to do that are less important or just put unnecessary pressure on ourselves.

Make a plan of what you need to do so you can start to break it down. Ticking things off your to do list when they are complete can help you to see all the things you have achieved. It is easy to focus on the things we haven’t done and miss those things we have.

If you are really struggling, try to think of just one good thing each day.
