When You Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything

Living and life is never clockwork.

Your mind is loaded.

Your focus is being distracted, here and there.

You have a schedule of goals and time frame.

But… battling distractions is becoming more difficult for you.

So, you around for solutions.

Some of these are:

  • how to meet scheduled goals and start your day.
  • how to avoid burn out or not becoming depressed
  • how to prevent procrastination?

Wishful thinking will not boil a piece of rock
even in a pressure cooker.

You need to work.

Of course there are days you
just won’t feel like doing anything!

You don’t have to be ill or in a bad mood.

But you just can’t get yourself to do anything.

You simply want to sit down, play
or just wander in your thoughts. 

Targets and goals you had earlier mapped out
are left unattended to.

Peaceful you feel, but also feeling guilty as
you think of lost time, never to be regained.

Now, what has life taught me about this scenarios?

Hear me out…

There are many elements that control us or influence
our day to day existence.

Everybody tries.

We all try to do our best to be productive.

We are not talking about lazybones who are not
worthy of emulation here.

So what do you do if you feel lethargic?

As long as there is no threatening situation
you must attend to; let your soul flow.

I personal have developed this sweet habit.

I sit comfortably in my chair, in a quiet place,
putting my phone aside, and just allow my mind to wander.

I have a piece of paper and pen to scribble whatever.
I may sleep off or not.

I pardon myself of not meeting up with my schedule
of productivity.

But rest assured that there is a consolation.

That you can’t do your best, with a heavy mind trying

to resolve some subconscious issues.

When you are in the clear, you will know.

The mental energy resumes.

The inertia gradually comes.

Fear is reduced.

And you get back to your being focused
on fine-tuned activities.  

Let your soul speak to you.

Let your soul return the spark to your consciousness,
your mind and physical body.

Enjoy your melancholic mood.

Enjoy your wandering mind.

A subtle moment will kick you to resume your activities.

Trust me it is never a wasted period for
your productivity and mental well-being.

Your life is not lived by a list of “what to do”,
all the time.

Our essence, circumstance and elements
around us affect and influence us, whether we
are conscious or not.

Smart people ride the waves of these moods.

And it shouldn’t be frequent, though
So watch out for this.

And become focused again.

Let me hear from you as a high achiever.

How do you handle these hesitant moments
of your wandering mind and lethargy?.
