It is helpful to focus on activities that you have been avoiding, or that are causing you stress, and that have the potential to bring you a sense of accomplishment, connection or enjoyment. Think also about activities that used to be part of your life but have fallen away. In any case, start with something do-able.

How: Structure the activity into multiple achievable steps to avoid feeling overwhelmed. Make sure that each step is clear, concrete, and observable. The skill of structuring will help you teach your mentee this skill as well.

When: Schedule the activity by making a specific plan for when, where, and for how long you will do the activity. Then, do it! It is helpful to think beforehand about things that might get in the way of performing the activity and develop a plan for how to overcome those barriers.
