Overcoming Apathy
« on: August 19, 2016, 04:49:47 AM »
Does anyone else have a serious problem with apathy?  They cannot even do the things that interest them, for whatever reason?  Apathy is difficult to overcome so what is your strategy to overcome apathy?

Do something different, go to place with different cultures & environment, experience love (not necessarily romantic), try a different life. Apathy is the outcome of boredom *at least in my case*

I honestly wish I knew.  I suffer from apathy and anhedonia, not absolute, but a high degree.  I think the only thing that helps for me is just to let it be.  Let yourself be lazy.   Do what little necessary things you have to do that day, in small increments, and if you feel like it, take naps if you need to.  I'm speaking as someone who seems to have dysthymia.

I'm kind of on the same boat there. Wish I could give you some advice, but I can barely fix my own problem. Though the only thing I can say is to try going out and finding something to do. Hell, I have to force myself to do something after school everyday, like photography. Even though I'm starting to feel apathetic towards that too. Yeah, sorry. Not much help.

I had that happen.  I just went with it and was lazy for a while.  Whenever I felt like doing something I did and finally it got to the point that I started playing games again and started doing things online and slowly it went away.
