I am embarrassed to say that ever since 2021 has started, I am having a very difficult time getting myself motivated to do much of anything. I don't want to get out of bed in the morning, I really don't want to go to work and I am not really interested in dealing with other humans. This surprises me because although I don't love work (who does) and on numerous days it annoys me beyond compare - I don't really (really) hate it. When I am in a bad mood, it doesn't really worry me. I usually chalk it up to everyone has a bad day and move on; but my bad days seem to be running into bad weeks. I'm not quite sure how to put a stop to it.
I can't really pinpoint what my issue is, I don't think it is one thing in particular - I think it is general apathy. I know many are suffering from depression and isolation with the current state of the world. People have lost jobs, they cannot see their family members and they generally don't feel comfortable being in groups. Restaurants are barely operational, you can't go to the movies and even if you could, there is nothing to see. Some gyms are open (barely), but most are still closed. It is cold and dreary and gets dark before I even leave work for the day. I feel stupid for being so down when I am fortunate enough to still have my job and haven't suffered any financial problems from the pandemic.
This is a new and unfamiliar feeling for me and I don't quite know how to shake myself out of my "funk". I'm sure I am not the only one feeling this way, but I am just ready to feel like myself again. Let me know if you have any tried and true remedies to put yourself in a better headspace - I would love to hear what works for you.
Sorry for the depressing post; until next time Nutties!
