What kinds of patterns can you find if you use a daily activity planner for depression recovery?

ANSWER

After a few weeks, you might see patterns that you never noticed before. For instance, you may find that you feel worse at one time of the day or during a particular activity. It could also show you the things that tend to make you anxious.

Once you start seeing trends like these, you can prepare more for the times when you might feel depressed. That way, you can make a plan to deal with them or avoid them altogether.
