Day 84: Relaxing?

It's Day 84 of #100DaysofHannah and #100DaystoOffload, and I'm officially tired of blogging.

Okay, so maybe that's a bit extreme. I'm sure I'll be back ready to blog tomorrow, but for this evening, I'm a bit tired of putting mental effort into tasks.

Which means that, even though I had a thought earlier on what to write today, I have completely forgotten what it was.  And my brain doesn't want to go back and find the topic.

What does my brain want to do?
Relax.

It's funny though.  From my experience, "relaxing" - or not doing anything that takes mental effort - is rarely actually relaxing.  Rather, instead of rejuvenating me, it makes me more exhausted than I was before.

If I remember correctly from something that my older brother once told me, this is because the brain doesn't actually want a break - it just wants a change of scenery.  It doesn't want to be inactive. It simply wants to be doing a different activity.

I guess that makes sense, when I think about it further. Typically, when I'm tired of putting effort in with something, it's less that I really need to quit working altogether, and more that I need to switch and work on something else.

For tonight, I don't really know what that something else is going to be, but that's okay. I'm sure I'll find it.

And if I don't? Well, that's okay too.

Til tomorrow,
Hannah
