Lists to Make When You are Feeling Down

When you’re not feeling your best mentally, it can put a cloud over your whole day.

I’ve found that writing out lists really helps to activate different parts of your brain, and it takes your mind off what you’re struggling with.

Grab a journal and a pen and let your mind go. This can help inspire you once you see that you can think about positive things, even when you’re feeling down.
