How To Look After Your Personal Hygiene When You're "Depression Tired"

Do you ever feel so "depression tired" that it's a challenge to look after your personal hygiene?

Every single day at The Depression Project, we hear from people who find it really, really difficult to take care of their personal hygiene when they’re feeling “depression tired”:

  • “For me, I have zero energy when depressed. Showering / washing and dealing with my hair takes a LOT of energy, and is a daunting task when I’m super depressed. Even though you know you’ll feel better for it, even though it makes you presentable so you could go somewhere, it’s just too much trouble.”
  • “You don’t even want to get out of bed, never mind get in the shower, put make-up on and smile for the world. You’re mentally exhausted no matter how much sleep you have. You feel lazy for not doing anything all day and feel crap because you’re not taking care of yourself the best you can.”
  • “Sometimes mustering the energy to even stand up is a challenge, let alone expending the energy to shower or brush my teeth.”
  • “It just takes too much energy. Literally exhausting. By the time I get home from work, after making it appear that I’m OK all day, I have nothing left in me. Plus, I matter the least to myself.”
  • “Showering just seems like so much work! The getting wet then getting dry then getting dressed … sometimes it’s all just too much when your tank is on ‘empty’.”

And, because struggling to look after your personal hygiene when you're feeling "depression tired" is so, so common, we created this cognitive behavioural therapy-based journal, in order to:

  • Share with you a variety of strategies to make it easier and less overwhelming for you to look after your personal hygiene when you feel “depression tired”;
  • Help you let go of any shame you feel on the occasions when you don’t manage to look after your personal hygiene.

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

  • PART 1: The Benefits Of Looking After Your Personal Hygiene When You Feel “Depression Tired” - When you’re consumed with “depression tiredness” – perhaps to such an extent that it’s an enormous challenge to even get out of bed, for example – then looking after your personal hygiene can feel pointless. However, like we’ll talk about in the first part of this journal, taking care of your personal hygiene when you’re feeling “depression tired” has some very important benefits. And, like we’ll also talk about, it can be very useful to be mindful of these benefits, since doing so can help you overcome the lack of motivation that can hold you back from looking after your personal hygiene when you feel “depression tired”.
  • PART 2: How “All-Or-Nothing Thinking” Can Hold You Back From Looking After Your Personal Hygiene When You Feel “Depression Tired” - “All-or-nothing” thinking is a common type of cognitive distortion in cognitive behavioural therapy, and in the second part of this journal, we’ll explain how it can hold you back from looking after your personal hygiene when you feel “depression tired”, as well as the steps you can take to break out of this thinking pattern and therefore find it significantly easier to look after your personal hygiene.
  • PART 3: Suggestions From The Depression Project’s Community That Can Help You Look After Your Personal Hygiene When You Feel “Depression Tired” - In the next part of this journal, we’ll share with you several suggestions from members of The Depression Project’s community that, in addition to what we cover in Parts 1 and 2, can help you look after your personal hygiene when you feel “depression tired” - including, for example, various “hygiene shortcuts” that you can implement, having a “reward system” in place to help motivate you to look after your personal hygiene, some ways in which you can make looking after your personal hygiene more enjoyable (which can also boost your motivation to do so), and more.
  • PART 4: Strategies To Stop Shaming Yourself On The Occasions When You Don’t Look After Your Personal Hygiene Because You Feel “Depression Tired” - Everything that we cover in Parts 1-3 of this journal will make it significantly easier for you to look after your personal hygiene when you’re “depression tired” - however, there may still be occasions when you feel too exhausted to be able to do so. When this is the case, then it’s common for people to shame and criticise themselves, and consequently, to feel even more depressed than they already felt. So, to help prevent your depression from worsening like so, in Part 4 of this journal, we’ll share with you a variety of strategies to help you be more compassionate, gentle and understanding towards yourself any time you’re too “depression tired” to look after your personal hygiene.

Additionally, to accompany each part of this journal, we'll share a wide variety of guided journal prompts for you to think about and write out your response to - each of which are designed to help you implement the strategies that we'll share with you as effectively as possible.
