Boredom Produces Energy Drops

Yesterday was a very unsatisfactory one. I got bogged down in non-productive computer stuff despite having a “to do” list. I had good intentions but there’s not much point in having a list if you’re going to ignore it.

I spent a lot of time fiddling with Twitter and found my energy dropping as I got bored and wasn’t achieving anything. I struggled to break out of the funk though. The key, I’ve found, is to move as soon as I notice my energy dropping because the longer I leave it the harder it gets to shift. I resisted this yesterday which resulted in a deeply unsatisfying experience. So I’m keen not to repeat it today which got me thinking about why we so often find it hard to do the things that are good for us and stick with those that aren’t. Which got me thinking about the stuff about emotions in What the Bleep. So I’m going to go and watch the video again . . .
