Increasing Your Activity
We know that when our mood is low, we often stop doing the things we enjoy, and the things that make us feel good! In turn this can make our mood worse.
By increasing our activity levels our mood will soon start to increase too!
It can be hard to do things when you aren't feeling great. But once you get started, you'll soon feel motivated to do more and more! We call this ACTION BEFORE MOTIVATION.
Below are some resources designed by our clinicians to help you get started with increasing your activity levels. They have been created to use in order but feel free to have an explore!
Use the worksheets below to identify how you can start to improve your mood by doing more. When you complete the worksheets reflect and and identify: What did you notice about your mood when you tried to increase your activity level? Did you find any interesting new activities? Have you got more routine in your week? Did you notice a sense of achievement? Did you try some fun things?
