It’s kind of silly sounding advice but I think it’s helping me. I started making a list of the things I did in a day and how hard they were for me to do that day. I’ve always felt terrible about not doing anything with my evenings. It turns out I do a lot. I just get in a depression/anxiety funk where I want to beat myself up about stuff.

Even on days where I’m at my worst, I still get quite a bit done … and it’s weighted by how much difficulty I had.
