Is There Something Easier Than Writing?

Is there something easier than writing when feeling more ill than usual?

This is just going to be a quick and most likely short one today because my energy levels are really low. I woke up feeling like I had been hit by a truck. I should have had a bed day today, but I didn’t. Instead I started thinking that there has to be something easier that I can do on days like this than writing. After yesterday’s post I was thinking about ill people who can’t even get up the energy to read a post and that combined with my own fatigue and sick feeling and I thought “I know, I should vlog on days like this!”

Yeah, well you know what I discovered? Vlogging is even more time, energy and health consuming than writing a post. First you need an idea of what you want to talk about, and I found that I was too tired to even remember what I wanted to say, so I had to make a few notes to keep me on track when I was recording. Then you have to edit the bloody thing. So no, vlogging is not easier than writing. I think my videos will have to wait. I realise that on those days where I have to wonder if there is something easier than writing, I need to take the day off and just rest.

Before I go I just want to share a piece of music with you! It’s what I have playing while I write this – I often find that an uplifting or energetic song will give me a nudge when I’m really feeling too knackered to get the job done. This did it for me today! I found it while I was looking for some royalty free music for any future videos I decide to make. It sounds like something else, but I can’t figure out what. Any ideas? Ciao for now!
