Literally no productivity over the past few days. In between projects so am able to WFH. I know I should do some internal works but I just have no motivation... also don’t wanna talk to anyone at work

Same thing happens to me SC. I’m actually so much less productive when I’m slower. The only thing that motivates me is to head to coffee shop, with a Spotify focus playlist, a list of things I want to do. It creates some focus and urgency if that’s the day I’m trying to have. Otherwise don’t beat yourself up- you’re in between projects

I was here OP. Very recently. Here are few things that helped me. 1) I bought new room fresheners (them fancy ones) - I tidied up my room and my house and now things look nice and smell excellent- Thereby uplifting my mood and well-being 2) got new personal care items- got new moisturizers and body wash, hair care and bath bombs. (Again- I got really nice ones.) This way I now look forward to taking care of myself and indulge in a self care routine- during the start of my day and right before I sleep- which surprisingly brings a lot of peace and quiet. (Bonus- I look my best when I do go out and meet people) 3) Got hot chocolate/ malted drink /coffee flavors stocked at home. I know this is silly. But now, instead of feeling depressed now I have sound sleep from that whole hot cocoa goodness. It works perfect for the weather. After I made these small changes now I feel a lot more refreshed and ‘rested’. It’s okay to WFH. But try and spend some time in the evenings outside where you can walk around - maybe visit a mall- just so that your body gets some exercise and you interact (albeit indirectly) with people. Maybe the barista or the doorman or even a stranger or a cute dog. Every bit of warmth counts! Last by not the least. Give yourself time. Eat good food. If you can’t or don’t feel like cooking- order. Sometimes it may be just your hormones messing with you. You will get over this! Take care.

thanks ladies. I just feel a bit guilty that I’m wasting my time. I picked up my study materials to prep for an exam that I wanted to take now. Although still not as productive as I usually am, but its good to have something on my plate.

Appreciate this may’ve been asked previously; but the WFH desk chair market is a minefield. Upgrading my existing Amazon £75er. Any top recommendations from people?
