Anyone have any motivation that they can throw my way? All day I didn't feel like doing anything and of course became down, depressed, and did nothing. I can only hope tomorrow is a better day. Hope no one else as having this issue nor has to deal with it anytime soon.
Crazed, My best advice to a dear friend like you....Wake up to Starbucks, have chocolate for lunch and a drink before bed If that don't do the trick I'll just have to share with you my cure all Thinking of you, Holly
Hello sir, I am not the half of yours age but faced such conditions lot, Only can give you what I do in such time,
When such conditions came Me go to such places with greenery all around with natural & pollution free climate or Start doing some natural works like growing plants in home garden, creating different type of borders in That etc. or Took the rough papers with paper board & start writing what my mind thinks, Never think that what to write. If my mind image the question ? what to write I also write that also becoz This activity makes us to think deeper. or Comes on any community site & enjoy forums while chatting indirectly & much more.
The one word answer is " Keep doing any work & remain away from such harmful thoughts ".
itech I thought this was an absolutely beautiful post. Just so you know though, Crazdwriter is a "twenty something" year old female. She recently lost her grandfather and has honored him these last few weeks with his picture as her avatar.
You said it just right. Great advice! I'm having writers' block. No recent topic has inspired me to write a hub. But I love the back and forth of the forums. There's so many subjects you can get involved in. Politics and Religious topics keep me interested. Try them Crazd.
If anyone has a LOT of motivation, they can throw some my way, too. I wanted to sleep so much today: do nothing but sleep. I'm looking out my window right now at the snow and wondering if it really is summertime in Australia. Hard to imagine from here.
I pretty much did exactly that, and didn't surface until after 5.00pm (although in my defence I didn't go to bed until nearly 07.00am the previous morning). I reckon these horrible Wintery dark days have a lot to do with it.
Craz'd - go to the local vitamin counter and get B-Complex with the very most Biotin in it that you can - or grab a "woman's day/active". Take one, sit down in your favorite chair for 15 minutes and I promise you'll be up and producing in no time. My staff used to call these my "go pills" . I kept them in my drawer and everyone grabbed one at some point, teasing me about my "legal drugs". I don't get much done without them.
I always Forget the too - that's why I kept a bottle at the office! Of course, my honey would see me flapping around at home getting nothing done and remind me to "get some drugs". I'm with Beth - Hugs to you both!
Take some time, relax, find yourself, enjoy yourself, pamper yourself. Run a hot, bubbly, fragranced bath for yourself. Love yourself and be kind to yourself. You are just right where you are. That's where you're suppose to be.
Set no expectations, and you'll be coming back full of energy and zest. Trust me...you know I know.
In the meantime, our boxes are panting and waiting to keep you warm and comforted.
HUGS, and more hugs (and some Krispies and a great big mug of peppermint hot chocolate). One more *hug* for the night!! xx
HAHAHA oh mistyhorizon long story...it's a joke between the two of us. when she was moving she go cut by the moving boxes so I said to be careful they might be hungry and it went from there. we gave life to the boxes
the other day, mega made a joke saying that she thinks me and beth were secretly the same person, so it caused everyone else on here to joke around that many users on this site were in fact the same person, using multiple accounts.
Remember, when it feels the worst, you can promise yourself that "It won't always feel this bad". I can relate to the 'down feeling' one seems to get for no apparent reason. Been experiencing a huge low myself. It's just the way we're wired. Physical excercise seems to help a great deal to fight that 'down' feeling. Stirs up endorphins in your brain. I try to surround myself with positive people or do something fun with a friend. Go around somebody who is absolutely hilarious....I even go to a movie alone if I feel like it. I understand your feeling. Like I said, I'm fighting it tooth & nail right now, but I refuse to give in to 'stinkin thinkin'. So tomorrow, I'm going with my spouse to counsel a dear friend of mine who is in desperate need of spiritual, financial & emotional healing. Gets the focus off my own 'pity party'. Relax, sit back and pamper yourself! You deserve it.....and don't give up! It's going to feel better again!
OS, just woke up everyone laughing! Ahhh haaaa haaaa....
@ MistyH -- We'll be sending some flattened to your email box. Just resurrect with some great mouth to mouth in the corners, stroke the tape on the bottom gently and fold flaps. VOILA! Some wonderful, loyal, passionate boxes! Enjoy your new warm companions!
@ Crazd -- ME'S still laughing to tearing point (pass me a kleenex and wipe our eyes, pleeeze!)
@ Steven -- Oh, wouldn't you like to know! But I'm laughing too hard to tell you!
I await their arrival and shall give them the closest of attention. I am sure they shall be very happy here and I shall take the greatest care with their flaps ensuring they are kept warm and regularly stroked
Hope you have some solace from the heartfelt comments of other readers.
Motivation is a complex thing.
For me motivation was never really a difficult thing. It was always just a matter of trying harder, pushing myself, being prepared to win or lose, and treat victory and defeat as imposters (Rudyard Kipling). Sometimes there are things that we can't control that can cause major problems with our will to go on. This has happened to me.
However, I always find exercise makse a big difference, and as other people have mentioned, keeping occupied in any way possible to stop those negative ruminations. Punishing yourself doesn't help you. Be kind to yourself.
You're not stealing it! I would love it if you used it! I don't ever change mine (maybe for Christmas)!!! Please, if you like it, you can use it! It's even a kitty!!! And I thought of it when you brought up the new avatar!
What you can do is completely clearing your head, do not think about anything. Go out for a nice drive or something, something where your mind really just.. wanders off. Have some you time. Or if you're like the super social person, dump all your emotions on someone.
Alright, if you're the clear head type, what you can try is keeping yourself busy. Do chores, go shopping or just something! What is REALLY good for when you need motivation is having sex. I'm not kidding. It bumps up your entire nerve system.
You know how they say, "Never put off until tomorrow what you could do today?" Well, sometimes it's ok to put off until tomorrow what you could have done today. In fact, sometimes if you keep putting off until tomorrow the whole problem somehow does just go away.
It's something I have to remind myself all the time, because I tend to get all wrapped up in the not-procrastinating thing. However, as any school kid who hasn't done his math homework will tell you, June inevitably rolls around and makes all the worries go away. (Of course, I wouldn't recommend this philosophy when it comes to washing dishes, doing laundry, or feeding your plants (or your children).
Hi again Crazd. I think you could write about anything you want actually. Glad to see your motivation is back!
You know how to motivate others. I read every post in this thread. Something compelled me to return. You have a really engaging style and presence. Being a bit slow on the uptake I became a little confused at times, reading through the posts, but it was worth it.
I seem to have spurts of motivation, but not quite enough to get me to the level I want to get to. Some hubbers say that they make a fair bit from hubbing and they probably do, Im just being impatient and need to put a...
The heat does not bother me as I can handle hundred plus degree weather, but what I hate about this time of year is the beginning of fire season. With hot and dry weather the winds can cause sparks in the brush,...
