As mentionned here, procrastination was my middle name today and it is not fun when it happens. I’m currently stuck between no 3 and no 4, getting ready to jump to no 6. Normally, when one of these days happens,I try to take it easy…They usually last a day or two max so I normally give up fighting it and a) stuff my face with a large pack of M&Ms (that’s where the missing 20% of my clean eating goes), b) retreat to my bedroom to watch Netflix until I fall asleep.
However, today I had some deadlines so I couldn’t afford to take the day off and had to press on. Consequently, I spent the day working, thinking no 2, working, thinking no 3, working…and hoping that at some point I end up on no 5 and ultimately no 1.
I’m not even there yet but I also know that I’m really tired from the show and while I know how to sleep well at night, I have been spending far too much time on my laptop since I arrived in London. It’s always the case when I’m alone. I tend to spend a stupid amount of time on the laptop whereas I give myself a cut-off time when Mila is around and I don’t know about you but when I’m tired, I’m really really negative towards myself, like I can’t do anything right to have a positive opinion of my work.
So tonight, I’m trying something new, two things actually: I’m off to the hairdresser for a blow-dry to pick myself up and then I’m having diner with a friend I haven’t seen for ages and while we are both tired, I’m sure it will be a great night.
What are your tips? What are you doing when Proscratination hits you and you feel like you’re useless?
