How do I start doing things again?

Was very depressed and just spent all my time sleeping and shitposting.

Now all I do is shitpost, gym and a part-time job. Can't get myself to do anything, lack the energy and concentration to even read books.
>>
Bump

I used to do so many things, but now I've got nothing.

How do I get started again?
>>
If I knew, I wouldn't be here.

Maybe replace gym with a more involved, social sport.
>>

I'm already a part of a powerlifting team.

It's not really a social life I'm after so much as getting started with hobbies again. For example, I used to study performance at a conservatory, but I haven't touched my instrument in ~3 years.

Every day I think about getting started again, but I can't seem to go on for longer than like 10 minutes of practice and then I won't touch it again for weeks.

You'll want a sport that women play too, I think. Like kayaking. Or tennis.
>>
>>16678045
Plenty of women on my team.

I'm also not especially desperate for social interaction, I feel mostly bad about squandering my short time on this earth with empty, unsatisfying distraction.
>>
>>16678052
What do you think would be a worthwhile pursuit, even if it's fictional?
>>
>>16678066
I'd like to be able to sit down and read, or practice, or write music or whatever again.

I currently have trouble maintaining my attention for any task more complex than shitposting.
>>
>>16678075
Perhaps you crave social interaction, so you come here for it.

Maybe an orchestra or band.
>>

STOP TAKING YOUR MEDS you've forgotten what you were before
>>
>>16678148
Before the meds I spent basically a whole year doing nothing but sleeping, eating, shitting and lifting.
>>16678101
I don't really think so, I still have quite a lot of friends and whatever, I just don't particularly feel like spending time with them.

Either way, my playing is not up to par for an orchestra at the moment.
>>
>was depressed

Sounds like you're still depressed, friend.

For hobbies I would just do 10 minutes of them a day for a week. Then after the week, do 20 minutes, then 30, etc etc. Keep ramping up the time, the point is to start very small, and stick to a schedule. Play your instrument at 5:30 until 5:40. Then the next day, same time. Keep doing this and eventually things will become routine. Or they won't, everyone's different.

I've been in the spot you were before, I would just come home and do absolutely nothing with my time and would be stressed out over it. I just stopped doing everything I was interested in before and sat around all night every night.

If you're trying to juggle too many interests at the same time you may crash and burn.
>>
>>16678157
Well, on the way to recovery at least.

Though I guess you're right, I'll just have to persist.
>>
>>16678155
You should definitely go for an orchestra then. Just try it, you'll make a lot more progress on your playing if you have a goal.
>>
>>16677899
>shitposting
>gym
>job

Sounds like you're doing things to me, anon. Pat yourself on the back!
>>
You're doing fine, I don't even have a job. But I have a gf and I'm going to tech school.

If you need more energy stop jacking off and ejaculate less.
>>
>>16677899
get a job, live on your own, get goals. once the ball starts rolling depression starts to lift. it's when the ball stops rolling that you become depressed.
