I’ve been extremely unmotivated lately, and even after a full week off from my 9 to 5 job I managed to not do a single creative thing the entire time, including working on the portrait commission I should have completed months ago! (So sorry Adrienne!)
My business has slumped along with my energy.
I think I am just so burnt out that I cannot find my muse anywhere. In addition to the portrait, I have a million other started projects piling up in my studio (the studio re-vamp unfinished, as well) waiting for me to get to them and share them with the world.
What happened to all my motivation? I believe that I took on so much at once that I have become overwhelmed and it makes me tired to just think about everything I should be doing. So, I have stopped producing anything at all.
Right now, mindless television and my family are my only interests.
You know the saying, “a body at rest stays at rest”?
That is so true.
I took a break after burnout and can’t seem to get back on track. It began with a break from the treadmill back in the winter that has pulled me into a downhill spiral ever since.
At the back of my mind I know that if I just got back on that damned treadmill every morning like I used to, I would feel much better, have energy to spare and have a much more invigorated attitude.
So why don’t I just do that? Why do I find myself hitting the snooze button on my alarm clock? Why can’t I get myself back into a healthy routine when I know perfectly well that it is the answer to everything that is wrong right now?
How do you do to pull yourself out of a slump?
