I’ve started a new rule about my productivity
Or more the lack of productivity during certain days
If by 5 PM, I feel as if I’ve “wasted” the day, then instead if forcing the day to be a productive day, I call it a gratitude day
A day where I reflect on my life
A day where I can relax and just be at-peace with my lack of productivity
A day where I can be grateful for what I have
Today is Sunday and I did quite literally nothing
But I am grateful that I exist and I am grateful that I am still here, able to do nothing
Some days I have this looming fog of lethargy hanging above my head
I don’t know how to get rid of it, and often, this cloudy mess of an ugly concept ruins my entire day.
I end up taking several naps in an attempt to regain energy but I inevitably wake up groggy anyways
I try to relax, but then I spiral down into an unproductive spiral
And if I try to be productive and get sh*t done, it usually ends up not working out and I produce bad content
But I think the issue is that I’ve been trying to fight this cloud physically.
It’s a fight I can never win. This entire concept of lethargy, this fog, I can’t touch it, I can’t see it, and I can’t really understand it. So attempting to fight it won’t work.
Instead, it’s much simpler to allow it to pass on. Don’t resist. Because behind this fog I know is a clear blue sky. And cloudy days never last forever.
Time heals many things.
