The "Depression Lack-Of-Motivation" Journal

"Lack-of-motivation is one of the biggest obstacles to overcoming depression" - do you agree?

According to The Depression Project's 3,000,000+ person social media community, lack of motivation is one of the biggest obstacles holding people back from overcoming depression.

Of course, this is very understandable – since when you’re deep in a depressive episode and have lost interest in everything that you would usually enjoy, are feeling completely exhausted, and are devoid of hope that life will ever get better, it can be extremely difficult to find the motivation to even get out of bed.

And, if this is the case, then something to help you overcome depression which requires significantly more capacity – like going to therapy, for example – will almost certainly feel like much too much.

Not only that, but struggling to take action and do things due to lack of motivation can also result in deep feelings of shame, worthlessness and crippled self-confidence – which can cause you to feel even more depressed … which can cause you to feel even more unmotivated … which can make it even harder to take action and do things … and so the vicious cycle continues and continues.

Consequently, we've created a cognitive behavioural therapy-based journal for you in order to help you overcome "depression lack-of-motivation" - which can lead to the following benefits:

  • Firstly, it can result in you feeling more energetic and inspired, and therefore better able to function and complete the tasks that you want to complete.
  • Secondly, thanks to feeling more energetic, inspired and better about yourself and your circumstances as a result of completing the tasks that you want to complete, your depressive episodes will likely tend to be less intense and last for shorter intervals of time.
  • Furthermore, as a result of feeling more motivated on the whole and having a higher capacity to function due to spending less time than you otherwise would trapped deep in a depressive episode, you’ll be in a much better position to take the steps that you need to take in order to actually overcome depression.

Here’s A Breakdown Of Exactly What This Journal Will Cover

PART 1: What Is “Depression Lack-Of-Motivation” Like?

In the first part of this journal, we’ll share with you a variety of quotes from members of The Depression Project’s community that describe what “depression lack-of-motivation” looks like, feels like and sounds like - in order to:

  • Help you feel less alone, better understood, and part of a community of people who know what you’re going through;
  • Help you perhaps gain some added clarity on your own experience of “depression lack-of-motivation” and how it affects you.

Additionally, in order to help you achieve these objectives, we’ll also share with you a handful of guided journal prompts for you to think about and write out your response to.

PART 2: “Why Can’t I Just Get Up And Do Things?”

Like we mention in Part 1 of this journal, when you’re struggling with lack of motivation in the midst of a depressive episode, you may experience thoughts like:

“This is ridiculous! Why can’t I just get up and do things? Everyone else seems to be able to, so why can’t I?”

(And, if you’re like many people with depression, then you may have also experienced friends, work colleagues or family members say something along these lines to you, too).

However, when you have depression, there are a variety of factors at play which can make it extremely difficult for you to “just get up and do things”. Most notably, these factors include:

  • Distorted thinking patterns which fuel lack of motivation;
  • Difficult, painful, uncomfortable emotions (such as overwhelm);
  • Physical factors (such as exhaustion).

For this reason, throughout the second part of this journal, we’ll identify the thinking patterns, the emotions and the physical factors that commonly contribute to “depression lack-of-motivation”, as well as share with you a variety of guided journal prompts to help you identify the specific factors that contribute to your “depression lack-of-motivation” (which is an important initial step in overcoming it).

PART 3: Strategies To Help You Overcome “Depression Lack-Of-Motivation”

In the third and final part of this journal, we’ll share with you a wide variety of tried, tested, cognitive behavioural therapy-based strategies to help you overcome “depression lack-of-motivation”. Additionally, each strategy we share with you will also be accompanied by one or more guided journal prompts - in order to help you think about how you could implement that strategy as effectively as possible.
