Productive Life = Happy Life?

There are so many things that I want to do in my lifetime, or even just in a day, but it seems so hard to get anything accomplished. When I’m not doing anything with my time I get upset at myself for wasting time. When I try to do things, there is something holding my back.

It is almost as though I have so many things going through my head I can’t focus. When you know there is something you need/want to get done to help better yourself, there is this pressure that drives you to get it done. But sometimes that drive turns into an overwhelming feeling that makes it impossible to focus. As a writer, it is hard to think of things to write about and create decent content, when this happens.

It starts to consume you, you push things off further and further until the point of self destruction. You put yourself into a situation that causes anxiety and depression without having the control to stop it from happening.

It may sound weird to those of you who have never gone through this before, but I feel like a lot of people will understand this feeling. It is a pull of darkness that drags you away from your goals and aspirations. It can take days, weeks, months of your life that will take time to recover from.

One thing to remember when this happens is that the feeling is temporary. Its good to remind yourself, when times get rough, to remind yourself that it is just a small time period. As time moves on, things will get better. Life is a roller coaster of emotions, you just have to learn how to go with the flow of things.

Don’t get yourself down because you got set back. Take time to recover and then use it as a spring board to launch yourself back into your productive life. Everyone needs a break sometimes, you’re not the exception to the rule.

  1. I used to feel so guilty for not filling every waking moment of my day with “productivity.” I also wanted to write, it just didn’t feel productive when I had school work to do. Then I would feel guilty for not writing. It was a toxic cycle that felt endless. It took a lot of effort to get away from the pressure to be productive.

    1. It can be difficult to cut yourself some slack when you have so many plans and obligations to get done. I feel the struggle of having to choose between writing and school work. School work tends to drain me to the point that I no longer feel the urge to write. That has been the hardest part of running a blog.

      Thank you for reading my blog and for commenting. Best of luck to you, always remember to take time to yourself.
