Tip "I Can't ___, but I Can ___"

When I go through a depression, I've found it helpful to reframe my limitations in terms of "I can't ___, but I can ___." I don't remember where I learned this, but I am grateful to whoever invented this coping strategy. An example is: "I can't do a lot of activities with my daughter, but I can encourage her to have her friends over to keep her engaged and entertained." Or: "I can't work right now, but I can do a bit of volunteering to make me feel productive and useful."
