I had a long, busy day yesterday that started when my dog woke me up at 4 AM and I couldn’t go back to sleep.
I wrote two posts here on WordPress.
I wrote and submitted an article to a publication on Medium. I also spent a long time dealing with self-inflicted technical errors with the article.
I cleaned the bathrooms.
I walked the dog twice.
I eventually went to bed at 10.
Today I went back to sleep after the dog woke me up. I woke up for good at 6.
I drove to Wawa for free coffee Tuesday.
I wrote my TV post.
Now I feel done. I have no motivation to do anything else. One of the benefits of my situation should be deciding to take a day like today off, but I never feel like that is an option. I feel lazy and have guilt about being “lazy’ I do have my weekly appointment at 10. That will get me to 11 and then what? It seems like a good day to return an item to the library and pick up my holds.
What do you do on the days when you are unmotivated to be productive? Do you permit yourself to take the day off? Do you find easy errands to do outside of the house? Do you force yourself to be productive?
