Preventing relapse in the future
(Segal et al., 2002)
Part of preventing a relapse to depression, anxiety, and alcohol/other drug use is for you to gradually learn ways to take care of yourself.
It is important to learn that even when life seems too busy and full of things to do, it is essential to keep doing activities that you enjoy as well as those which give you a sense of achievement.
The SHADE skill module “Getting Moving Again” encourages doing at least one enjoyment and one achievement activity into each day, and to try to avoid doing those things that drain energy reserves and lower mood. If you haven’t yet completed this module, you may like to return to the Skills Menu and do so. Otherwise, please continue.
