My least satisfying days are the ones where I am both restless and drained.
I feel like I’m not doing enough, like there are more responsibilities I should be handling, and I wonder if I’m working as hard as I should. I feel fidgety, squirming on the inside.
But at the same time, I’m too tired to do whatever it is I should be doing.
I like doing too many tasks in a day, and whenever I lose that drive, I feel horrible.
The best way to deal with this feeling—I have found—is that you have to be present. What am I wasting my time with? What tasks should I actually be working on today? What can I get done in a few hours without feeling completely burnt out?
It’s essential to our well-being to be productive, but overworking ourselves can be detrimental. Many people forget that and pay the price for it.
I took a small break from posting, but now I actually have motivation to write again. (Those college essays burnt me out!) In the mean time, check out Accursed Red. I will be working on making an Audio book and a Kindle version of it so that it can be enjoyed in more than one format! Thanks for reading 🙂
