My ability to make things has diminished over the last few years. I’m not sure if it’s a problem with my creativity, or my concentration/endurance or something else, but I just don’t seem to be able to make as much stuff as I used to.

I’m not sure what caused this but it’s a bummer and I’d like to reverse it. Seems like now most of my enthusiasm comes first thing in the morning and evaporates by the time I get out of bed 🤣


@jjg Is it from stress and fatigue? Maybe you just need to recoup some energy. Have you tried meditating? It’s not a cure all, but it helps me at times.

@JasonTiffany I was moderately committed to regular meditation years ago (jeese, maybe decades?) but fell out of practice when I got into more demanding work that ate all my time (ironic because I probably needed it more then).

I wonder if I could get back into it?

I think it’s a bit of all of the above, plus age and other physical things. It’s been very hard to justify taking care of myself the last few years.

@jjg Need to take care of you! Give it a whirl. I’ve been doing it regularly for quite a while and it helps a lot! Instead of going for 20 min a shot, try 10 minutes for a recharge. Sometimes I’m not patient enough for a full session, but 10 is easy and seems to help plenty.
