Managing your mental health is complex enough on its own without adding in the fact that every day can bring new challenges. What do you do when new depressive episodes and stressors while you're managing existing ones? Recovery hinges on recognizing and addressing the changes these bring to daily routines, social interactions, and self-care. The key is balancing 'inputs' and 'outputs' in your life. Inputs are activities that replenish energy and enhance well-being (like sleep, nutrition, and exercise). Outputs are tasks that drain energy, such as work, school, and chores. Focus on building and maintaining a strong foundation of inputs. This can prevent the unsustainable cycle of being overwhelmed by outputs.
