Having a hard time accomplishing daily tasks

Posted , 8 users are following.

Does anybody else have a hard time and lack the ambition to do normal activities such as cleaning and organizing around the house? I cannot seem to accomplish much when before I was on top of everything.

    I have very little drive to do anything. I hope it changes.

    Ohhh yes!

    Some days all I want to do is sit on the sofa and watch TV. I just don't have the energy or ambition to do anything. My home used to be spotless but now I manage just enough to keep it clean. Seriously thinking of hiring someone to clean. Thank God my husband is so understanding and helps out as much as he can.

    Yes!!!! I used to be really fussy and cleaned all the time, now it just takes to much thinking about and too much effort, I'd rather veg with a good book or do some craft work, although sometimes it's even hard to drum up enthusiasm for the craft work. Feel so blah at the moment but then when I don't do it I feel guilty and stressed ??

    I'm constantly moving but nothing getting done. It's like I cannot focus.

    Perhaps now is the time in our lives when we are supposed to reconsider how important a spotless house really is. Or the distribution of work....why is hubby relaxing while we are running around. No, i do not have the energy to keep my house spotless, but i have also learned to cut myself a break and not beta myself up about it.

    I do have my moments! I work full time and during the week Ive stopped cooking dinner ..but maybe 2 times a week we'll cook and that's it. Just don't have the energy and having to prepare them out away just gets me tired thinking of it! But then I have days where I'm so full of energy. Ive been always active and busy but these past few years have been challenging. I definitely can't wait to get over this!

    This is me all over. I literally feel the most settled when I do nothing at all. And then I am not settled because I am doing nothing. When I try and do stuff I get very distracted and can't focus. I have a ton of things to do and here I am reading this forum avoiding life. rolleyes
