It’s been a while since I noticed a trend in my behaviour. I tend to focus on a task and work really hard on it for a certain period until I stop, completely. And it is very hard to get out of it. I haven’t really made an effort to count how many days it is before I lose focus and energy. But I’d say it’s about a week or two before I give out and dive into laziness.
During this time, I don’t feel like doing anything. Be it university assignments, Japanese or even get out of bed. This period of laziness eats into my time. And this is a pattern that is very hard to get out of. I often feel like my brain requires these periods of rest. It’s just unfortunate that it takes this long to get back up on the saddle.
I have been going through this phase lately. And today seems to be the day I begin a new cycle of work. I’m thankful to feel motivated to move around, exercise, read a book and study Japanese. I don’t know if the reason for this is because I push myself too hard. But the fact that I noticed this should be helpful, right?
