I’m glad I asked you guys how to distinguish laziness and burnout. I’m really not good at seeing the difference.
Your answers convinced me I was about 75% burned out and about 25% lazy. I decided to focus on some basic things my life needs. Even a few days of reconnecting to my hobbies has done me a lot of good. Today I’m getting professionals in to help clean the house. (Because of my allergies, I have to keep a much cleaner house than most people, and this is intimidating to achieve when the house is a wreck.)
I suspect that once I ease the feeling of burnout, the laziness will go away. I’m already daydreaming again, which I hadn’t been doing in a while.
You know what I really want? Three months. A summer, like I had as a kid.
