of things to do when my brain is functional.
Inside my brain are a dozen or more nagging things I should do . Things that don’t get done because during the brain stillness, I function on a rail. I do the habits. I walk through the day by doing the next habit. I focus on conquering the small stuff.
But depression is not a static state and when it moves into the zone of normal I very often get less done than I should because I can’t really seem to put my thoughts into gear to get those nagging tasks done. I can’t remember them.
I think I need a list. It has to be on something easily accessible. So when the nagging thought shows up, I can put it immediately on my list. Thus removing it’s anxiety from my head.
And when I realize I am in functional normal mode, I can grab the list and do something I wouldn’t normally get done.
I also need the list to be already set up as a functional to-do. Ie – task broken into it’s component parts.
I will try to do it on one of my phone apps I think. Although I find writing things down easier, I no longer carry any pad of paper. I have a phone after-all.
But breaking down the task means it can’t be an app like Remember the Milk. It has to be a proper to do app. But that will be an additional electronic nagging rather than a place to put my nagging thought that safely removes it from the anxiety place until I can do it.
I think finding the right app might end up being the first thing on the to do list? Or at least figuring out how to make an easy app like Milk work for this.
Anyway – that is my current state of mind. I need more lists in my life. My brain is way to full of holes.
