:five:

I relate to that so much! I think TheStarboy once put up an article that helped me a lot with getting out of that cycle, let me go find it and put it up here so we can both benefit :lol:

I woke up today feeling quite anxious. I am still stuck trying to get myself into a routine and increasing productivity. I realised that the issue may be that I can be far too lenient with myself and that I have messed up my ability to self-regulate and control my own behaviour. I mean besides the anxiety I have mentioned, which is something I am going to have to live with it, so I am solely focusing on my performance and management errors here.

In the previous blog, I attempted to fix this issue through embarking on a dopamine detox for 24 hours. I did not really feel like I benefited greatly from going on that, but I do think that the video brings up a good point about adjusting behaviours to achieve dopamine from completing tasks as opposed to unfruitful procrastination ventures. In essence, through minimising the amount of dopamine I get for doing nothing and through menial wasteful activities.

So, and I know this sounds odd, going to try to stop listening to music (only will as a reward) and maybe delete social media apps from my phone. Block some sites (looking at Youtube lol). In the summer, I was ultra-focused, or at least in comparison to now, because I stopped using social media apps, and unintentionally stopped listening to music. Not that listening to music is bad, but when there is that emptiness and quiet, I feel like I am more likely to not escape from my responsibilities.

Anyway, I will try it out today, and see whether or not there is a slight difference in my behaviour and productivity.

Spoiler:

Kind of just want to be left alone. As in tired of the scrutiny and the pressure.

^^ Lol this sounds so dramatic, just in one of those phases where I have 0 energy, so hate it when someone adds any scrutiny/ pressure to any degree by or example saying "you should be doing that, why aren't you", or "work on yourself", "go talk to this person"
It comes from a good place, but again I am just a bit fatigued and irritable lol. Trying hard to get back my energy and focus (still)

It’s one of those days isn’t it? When you have absolutely no energy to do anything? Better off removing all distractions if you are going to keep focussed. Try working in intervals where you do nothing but work fora few mins than take a break.

That’s anxiety for you. Have one good day and suddenly, expect weeks of unproductivity
It’s harsh but sometimes you have to do things the hard way to get results. Having a friend there is a good idea, you wouldn’t want to do it alone.
No problem. Second year have been tough for you so far but you’re doing well so far. Keep going and you’ll feel better in the long term

Omg that’s me recently, if I wake up at 9/10 I just go back to sleep until 11/12 😂
Though this has changed in the last day or 2 🤔

Ceases to amaze me how our gut feelings can be very very accurate ... With judging/ getting an impression of other people and with future events
*future events could just be confirmation bias

Honestly wonder what the explanation of that is ...
