In 2009 while going through a rough patch, I learned I only need to brush my teeth and/or take a bath to feel better about myself, however momentarily. Anything water-related. Many will understand the willpower necessary for such tasks. It is a sort of victory, being able to bring one's self to the other side of his bedroom door. To shuffle downstairs and see what's going on outside the house. To not lay down again and hide under the pillows, in broad daylight. There've been minor and major victories. The important thing is not get too cocky. Pace.
