Dealing with depression I'm having a lot of trouble with motivation to do many things. It is becoming more and more of a problem for me. What is your experience with this or what is some advice you have?
Most people, even those without depression, don't feel like they accomplish everything they need to. Admittedly it's worse with depression (because everything is worse with depression) but it's more manageable if you focus on just the stuff you really, really need to get done. Like, for instance, working at a job - because you need the money for rent and food. If the only thing you do in a day is go to work and earn a living... that's still an accomplishment. You might spend the rest of the time playing video games or staring at TV - or the wall - but that's because you need that time to recharge. Give yourself permission to recharge.
Give yourself permission NOT to do all the non-essential things. You'll feel less guilty. Yes, dishes and laundry need to be done but do they need to be done right now? Probably not. So don't beat yourself up over it.
Accept "progress" as an accomplishment.
It's harder to start a task if you know that it's going to take a long time or be difficult to complete. If you know that cleaning a room will take an hour but you only feel like you have 15 minutes of effort left in you... you probably won't even start. You don't always have to see a task through to completion. Clean for 15 minutes today, count that as a win, and leave the rest for tomorrow. That's a 25% improvement vs. how it used to be.
Even little ones. Especially little ones. Ignore that voice in your brain that says "It should be perfect and it's not" and tell yourself: It may only be 5% better but. It. Is. Better. Don't let yourself dwell on tasks still yet to be performed.
