[crickets chirp; obligatory tumbleweed rolls by]
Okay, it’s only been a couple of days, and to be fair, those days have been gray and rainy (giving me an excuse for some much needed catching-up with my down comforter).
The first rainy day was quite nice, but after three days, I was starting to get crabby about it: I had stuff to do, that needed to get done, but I couldn’t find it in myself to get up and do it.
Instead, I was frittering my day away (hello, stupid Facebook games!) until suddenly, it was late afternoon, I hadn’t done anything much, I still had no motivation and now I was annoyed/depressed about having wasted most of the day.
So… what sort of little tricks do you employ when you can’t seem to get started?
Do you set a timer for 15 minutes and tell yourself you’ll conquer a chore for at least that long? Do you bribe yourself with a small reward during or after a task? (Self-bribery via potato chips is what got me through several laundromat trips last week.)
