I'm having difficulty getting motivated while Christmas is fast approaching. I force myself to do things but hate it while I'm doing it. I don't have the time or the funds to see the doctor before the holidays are over. I know I need to snap out of it because we all know that deadlines and life just go on. That's why I force myself to do those unpleasant tasks. The problem is some tasks shouldn't be unpleasant and I'm still having trouble. Any suggestions?

Ruby, I know just where you are cumming from, in the past I could not wait to get started on making gifts for Christmas, but as my health and finances are both slipping I have a hard time getting my rear in gear. I wish I had some suggestions for you, other than say don't let it get you too far down, watch a favorite movie or something that you enjoy and relax with.
Hope you find inner peace for your Holidays!

Ruby try doing the unpleasant tasks first and get them out of the way. I turn on the Christmas music and sing along and before I know it the unpleasant task is over. This makes the fun task that much more fun and I have done what I don't like doing.
