A question for you

This is simple. What do you do on those days when everything seems meaningless? Just a day when you wanna throw in the towel, stay in bed forever and not do any of the things that are expected of you.

I’ve been having a few too many of those days lately, so I am honestly looking for advice.

  1. I usually find a book that I want to read. Usually a fiction of some sort. And let myself get completely consumed in another fantasy land for 2 days straight. Probably not the most helpful advice, but sometimes you need to give yourself that time.

  2. Life is never meaningless. Even when down at the bottom of the well – look up and you can see the stars by day. Look down and you see the little living things that need that environment to survive (they keep our soil alive, and therefore, us). Feel everything, write it down so you get every single piece of the emotional context of that moment. When you think you have it all there, create a character, put her in that situation – and then get her to use her intelligence, smarts, and creativity to get out!
    Oh, and then call yourself a writer – because that’s what we do: get completely into the ‘feel’ of every emotion, every reaction, every single thing we can (pain included) so we can use it to tell a good story, accurately.

  3. On the really tough days I find a way to escape. Either mentally or physically, but I have to feel productive at the same time. I’ll read a book, code a website, or draw to help my mental distraction. Otherwise it’s running or walking a local nature trail with my music blaring. Music is my thing tho. I constantly need it. Icon for hire, State of Mine, and instrumentals help me a lot. If it hits when my son is around then disney music. โ™กโ™ก

  4. Get up and do something different, something unexpected. Or take a moment to rewind the clutter of the mind and experience something long forgotten. The song of a bird, the smell of a cool breeze or the feeling of the sun on your skin. Remind yourself that there is nothing more meaningful than living a moment for all it has to offer. No matter how meaningless it may seem, it’s not.

  5. Totally concur with previous responses. Get up do something different. Go for a walk or watch a movie. As for me, I immense myself in music and live in its moments or simply find a thriller novel and read. Sometimes I go to shopping centres for sightseeing or sit down at the city centre and just soak myself into nature and people passing by. Hope it helps.

  6. Stop and think of others that are worse than you… imagine those who are in hospital and would give anything to get out… and surround yourself with people… hiding in isolation only adds to the doom and gloom.
    If it’s at all possible ( and you like animals) get yourself a pet – th y will love you unconditionally …
    And good luck๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
