Yesterday I talked about relaxing and hopefully helped someone who struggles to include relaxation in their schedule. But today I wanted to help those who struggle with the opposite issue, being productive.
For some of us, id say being productive is almost a personality trait, you’re either consistently productive or consistently not, but in other cases, a lack of productivity can come in waves due to life circumstances and mental health.
I explained in yesterday's post that I'm naturally the type of person whos always GO GO GO and relaxing is hard for me because a lack of time, always thinking, and in some cases, avoiding my own thoughts/feelings. But I have experienced the opposite as well, the struggle to get myself to do anything and the struggle to have any motivation to be productive. In these times it's easy to get stuck in a deep dark hole and only dig yourself deeper and deeper with every moment that you aren't productive. It's like a switch and any desire or motivation to do the bare minimum in all aspects of life. The more you DON'T do, the more you have to do, and the more you feel like you’ll never be able to get anything done because you’re so far behind.
Well let me just say, it's never too late to get out of this hole, and baby steps is the way to go.
Before you get overwhelmed, just remember that any little step in the right direction is one step closer to the surface and one away from going deeper into the hole.
Start by making a weekly schedule and writing out ONE thing you NEED to accomplish each day, and anything accomplished on top of that is just a bonus. This gives you a daily goal, it puts an end to the mystery of “how much” you need to do, and provides a feeling of accomplishment when you accomplish your daily goal. Over time you can add more, and before you know it you’ll be making a weekly schedule with everything you need to accomplish. It just starts with one thing a day, and I promise, one day everything will be ok. You just need to start.
