Motivation II

One writes about motivation when it's gone missing.

There's this kind of motivation block that seems to be physiological. It's hard to describe. Not quite tired, but it can happen when you've underslept; but I think the most common time is after a night of normal sleep catching up accumulated undersleep. It's a kind of nervousness, isn't it. It can feel rather like excitement, actually. But still blocked, so there's some kind of tension, thus the nervous feel to it.

Eating a little too much can probably also be a contributing factor.

Coffee or caffeine doesn't really help. It rather adds to the nervousness, although I haven't done any study on it.

I don't know what to do about it. Walking doesn't help either. Possibly relaxing, thoroughly, but that's a pretty paradoxical thing to be able to do at work.

Wait it out. How long?

One can do some cleaning. The folders named like "untitled folder 21" in the Desktop folder, for example.
