My brain has been put on pause, and I’ve managed to misplace the remote.
This is exceedingly unfortunate, as , In the way of that whole “Newton’s Law/ conservation of energy” thing, it always seems more difficult to get going again, after I’ve found myself in stasis.
I’m not very good at down-time. I find that I never quite know what to do with myself.
I’m pretty good at managing to fill up my life, so often I don’t really *have* downtime; however, this also means that I am less accustomed to coping with said downtime.
Often, my response is to eat copious amounts of ice cream.
I am currently trying to remove that response from my playbook-of-life, and have found myself somewhat at a loss for finding new coping methods.
This leads me to conclude that I should learn how to just get over it, and figure out some kind of manual override for my Paused Brain Syndrome, but I certainly didn’t manage that today.
