I've been super tired this past week, how about you? Even though it's summer, I feel like I'm trying to churn out even more energy than during the school year. Yet, during this season, I'm getting a lot less work done. I did come across an article this week (you'll find it below in the links!) that talked about how our brains and bodies really do slow down during the summer. For me though, it's not the heat that slows me down, I think it's just this mindset of "It's summer so you don't technically have to do anything". But I do, I have my own business + freelance + preparing for post-grad life. I'm feeling zero inspiration to produce any new content or write up posts and edit photos for content I already have. I know I'll be taking a few slow weeks in August (i.e. 1 post weeks). I don't know if it's a rut, but there is a lot of frustration swirling around. Where's my motivation? Help! Let me know if you find it!
