I've been having a really hard time getting out of my head lately and interacting more with my surroundings. I've been unemployed for a few months and feel like I keep floating farther away from any functioning routines, besides meals and overusing weed. I know it's all temporary but i'm really struggling to shake my brain fog and start making changes. please feel free to drop a line if youre experiencing something similar and would like support, to give advice, or just to chat.

      I really struggled when I was unemployed too and I found I was much happier after I started a new job.

      Being unemployed can make home feel like some giant pile of chores, having a routine and schedule is good but it's just not practical for some people to just easily up and do something. I try to implement some creativity in my day, i draw out and fill out my own calenders/journal. I even give myself a few days a month to lack so I don't feel so bad missing a day. I also try to record my activities, it gives me a sense of urgency so I have to do the dishes so I get my sticker in my calendar, or the laundry. I am not above giving myself treats for doing even the smallest of things like showering or eating a small meal.

      The thing that worked for me is faking it. I tricked myself into setting a "work" schedule. In the time that I would be working I would do something productive, creative, or looking for a new job. I loosened my mind on what working means
