how do i get my motivation back? - Psychology Questions

Welcome to Psychology Questions, where you can ask questions and receive answers from other members of the community.

I have been having frequent bouts of depression (not clinical) and having anxiety/panic attacks. it has become hard for my to get myself up and motivated, especially when life looks bleak and i get anxiety about having an attack again. no matter how hard i try to push myself it's like my brain ins't conviced..i know life is worth living but in some moments i don't believe it. Even now, things that interest me such as photography and psycjology haven't motivated me enough- all they do is distract me. i just don't know how i am going to cope in sixth form with lots of work and no motivation.

I would recommend talking to a wise friend, or going to see a therapist. Often these feelings are caused by recent tragedies, life changing events, or your mind catching up with reality. Hope things get better.
