There is something special about deciding when

If you get into something that requires months or years of dedication, like building something physical, writing a book or coding a desktop/web/mobile program that does help. There's some anticipation involved for the end result even if you're anhedonic and you can sink as much time into it as you feel like.

This method however, requires that you aren't completely anhedonic. I often struggle with the motives behind my programming but mostly I understand it is to fill up time and finish SOMETHING, the trick is that for that I need it to actually be enjoyable and publishable, as there would be no anticipation if I knew I was just entertaining myself and what I was crafting was shit.

I don't think anything works.

You can try to find a goal and do something that will incidentally make people notice you. Hope is very painful though, maybe its not hopeless for everyone.

I don't stop listening to music when it hits me hard, I also start writing about how I feel, in Windows Notepad.

No paro d'escoltar música quan m'agafa fort, també em poso a escriure sobre com em sento, en el bloc de notes del Windows.

I disagree with this statement. 😠

I like like to put a lively ambient with background noise like music, youtube explanation videos, or true crime podcast.
You disagree with a period? Lol
i listen to a lot of entertainment podcasts. i like listening to people talking and some of them are really funny (i catch myself smiling when i listen to them).
I like russel brand

Movies and TV series for filling in the time, video games also, but sometimes more productive since you're interacting with the game world. Picking up new hobbies, trying to acquire new skills such as playing an instrument, learning a language also helps. Setting small goals and achieving them until they get the snowball effect.

For me I watch youtube a lot, this is my main escape- sometimes videos of people doing random acts of kindness for others, sometimes silly pranks that don't harm anyone, things like that.
Same. I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos about technology, because it's something I like and helps me distract myself in the moment.

I like reading books. It's my best replacement for real life and relationships. But sometimes is too hard to that... and only meds work.
