“Idle hands are the devil’s playthings” — ever heard that old saying?
I’ve TOTALLY been feeling that way lately. My summer is officially here — so I’ve reverted back to sloth mode. I’ve been super lazy, spending most of my time watching TV, Movies, or YouTube videos. Haven’t felt super energized or motivated for any particular project. Instead, I find myself flitting from one project to the next without really finishing. I have a barely started puzzle on a table in our spare room, a few sewing project plotted out but incomplete, a half full coloring book, a few half finished crossword puzzles, and even a list of organizational tasks that I haven’t started.
Does anyone else do this?
Instead I’m just twiddling my thumbs and trying to fight off the boredom. With so little to engage my brain, my thoughts begin to turn to negative thinking… “Catastrophizing” is what we call it around here. My thoughts become a string of “what ifs” that are all negative — and lead me to feel panicked and anxious.
Gotta find a way to keep busy and I could use your help!
