I seem to be having an inertia problem today. I'm not sure whether the underlying issue is energy levels or motivation or whether those are actually two parts of the same metaphorical elephant.

So, y'all, what do you do when you feel kind of schlumpy and you're not really interested in doing anything? Maybe I could take a short walk? Maybe I could challenge myself with a goal of checking a certain number of things off of my to-do list? Maybe I could bribe myself with a promise of a future treat if I buckle down and get things done? Maybe I should declare a 'just do it' day where the paradigm is to start with the most important/urgent item and just continue to make forward progress, no matter how slow the pace and regardless of whether I actually "feel like" working on the thing or not. ('Just do it' day sounds like a dreadful slog, but it usually turns out that once I slowly, reluctantly get going on things I end up getting engaged and interested and it becomes quite productive.)
