One of the worst times of the year for depression for me is after the holidays when the weather is gloomy and the decorations and parties are gone. I thought maybe we should all put together lists of our own \"survival tools\". Maybe a list of things to do or a box of projects. I put a list on my journal that I started today. Perhaps your list/box could include things like starting a scrapbook, organizing areas in your home that you put off all year, a craft you want to learn, a new puzzle, a woodworking project, etc. You get the idea. It is best though to have this ready for when the blues hit because once they do, it is hard to get any motivation or ideas on how to get out of the funk. I said today on my journal that the first step is a hundred steps long, but once you take that step, the rest are easier!! Please post your lists!! Maybe we can help each other in these situations!
