Hello! I hope you're doing well
I'm about to finish with my exams in the next few weeks & then it will be a good few months until uni starts (providing I go, that is.)
Anyway, to most people my age this will probably sound like the ideal situation, months on end where you are free to do whatever you like with no real responsibility, right?
I don't know if this is just normal when suffering from certain mental health conditions, but I actually dread having large amounts of time off. Even if it's just a 2 week holiday over Christmas or something, I always find myself feeling a sense of panic when I know I'm gonna have a lot of consecutive days where I have no real plans or anywhere to be (like school).
So my question I guess is, are any of you the same? What do you do when have a lot of time off to keep yourself occupied?
It seems pretty obvious, that I should just do stuff! But the problem is, at the moment especially, I don't find anything particularly interesting. TV shows, movies, reading, nothing seems interesting to me. I find most of the day boring & find myself counting down the hours to when I can get back into bed again in the evening! Then I think I should plan to go out somewhere, with friends maybe, but I'm also extremely anxious about a lot of things (or pretty much everything) & socially find things quite challenging, so often avoid things because of this. I don't want to get back into the habit of just staying in bed all day & not bothering to get up (which was pretty much what I did last summer).
Any suggestions on small things I can do that will help keep me focused & motivated?
