Do you ever have days where you are really bored with myLot? Do you get sleepy from reading discussions after a long period of time? I do get bored and not because the discussions are boring but I get tired of sitting on a computer chair and typing after a long period of time. Then I get sleepy and find I need to get off the computer for awhile.

Doesn't it bother your eyes? I get eyestrain and the dr. explained it's from long periods of being on the computer. Don't blink often enough when staring at the screen. Thanks for responding.

Yes, sometimes I do feel that way, especially when I can't find a topic which I want to post response after staying here for more than an hour. Yesterday after posting a few responses and scrolling and scrolling the topics here, I finally made up my mind to shut off the PC and just went to my bedroom and do the karaoke singing. :D

A singer, huh. That's great. I have plenty of discussions to answer if I have the time. My friends are very active so I get the email notifications and answer what I can. Thanks for responding.

No Carol, I am not really a singer, that's why I just sing in the confines of my bedroom, so no one could hear me. I jsut do the karaoke singing to relieve moe of boredom and stress. Well, wish you more myLotting energy and enthusiasm. Have a good day!

I have these days sometimes at Mylot. I can only sit and type for so long here. I get very sleepy from staring at the screen and the keyboard. My neck starts hurting too. I have to take a break from it and work in my other sites for a while to break the "monotany". I hope I spelled that right.

I do laundry while working on myLot in the morning. That helps keep me awake and alert. Thanks for responding.

I do laundry around the clock it seems. I always have at least one load in the mornings and two loads in the evenings. I am always washing rugs and curtains and bed covers also. My poor washer and dryer run all the time it seems.

Depends on what time of the day I read it and it also depends on my mood.

I agree. Find myself getting sleepy in the early afternoon or later at night when on myLot. Thanks for responding.

sometimes I lose interest in MyLot and do login for days. It usually happens after I fail to find a good discussion to respond to, or do not have any bright ideas for a new discussion. On these days I usually pay more attention to other online paid programmes. But I always come back to MyLot with fresh ideas, and spend hours posting again LOL.

I also do a couple of programs online but prefer myLot by far. Just can't be here too long. Thanks for responding.

I don't spend long time with mylot. I feel sleepy also. I want to start a discussion. But I don't know which topic. I do other things aside mylot. Otherwise I fall asleep here.

Think of a topic that is different, funny or something interesting to you. Thanks for responding.

I don't get bored so much as much as I end up in pain. My shoulders and upper back muscles start to kill me and then I have to stop. I often jump from my email to mylot to Helium and then do research on something of interest to me. Take care

My eyes can't take extended periods of time on here. Then I get a headache and sleepy. Thanks for responding.

I find it hard to sit and read all day at the computer. My eyes are bad and I really need new glasses, sometimes I do get sleepy too. My back will also hurt and my legs will go numb if I sit here too long.

I love being on myLot but sometimes my body rebels. Have to get up and move around. I certainly understand about the eyes as mine are also bad. Thanks for responding.

Heya, Yeah I get bored of sitting and reading here at mylot.. Although I find the discussions interesting, I find it really hard to find one that I have something decent to add too, so I go through so many discussions before I can find one to post too.. I find I need a break and usually go and do something else for a while, like I'm about to do now, lol. Tanika.

The discussions are interesting but I, like you, find it hard sometimes to add anything of any importance to a discussion. I have no clue about certain technical computer problems or the newest games such as Wii. Thanks for responding.

I don't really get bored. I like reading other people's views on things. The main thing I have trouble with is trying to find quality topics to write about, especially when the site is slow, and not many people are posting new discussions. It kind-of makes it hard to make money when there isn't much going on on the site.

Suggestion: if you increase your friend list and are set up for email notifications, you will have more discussions than you can handle in a day's time. I can't, but try hard, to respond to all. Thanks for responding.

I don't know if it's from being bored. Sometimes I get really sleepy on the puter too and then get off and try to go to bed and find that I am not really that tired! I think you are right. It's sitting in one place for a long period of time. I usually am running around doing something...going from room to room changing activities then when I sit down I relax and get sleepy!

I enjoy all the discussions so it's not boredom from reading them but being here for long periods of time does make me sleepy also. I usually do laundry at the same time and that in itself is alot of walking and moving around. Thanks for responding.

I never get bored here at myLot. There are so many reasons for me NOT to get bored here. Staring at the computer screen for a long time makes my eyes tired and to a certain point, stressed out. When I feel my eyes getting strained, I look for other things to do at least for a while. When I feel better, I continue working on what needs to be accomplished here at myLot.

I do the same thing most days. My eyes get real tired here because of the lighting, I think. It's overhead and not directly on the keyboard or screen. Thanks for responding.

That is why I do mylot for awhile then I will go do something else for awhile and come back for awhile. I can't sit in one spot for long periods of time it drives me up a wall. Once in awhile I find the discussions boring too but not usually.

I answer discussions here for awhile and then work on a craft. Later come back and answer a few more. Sitting here for long periods makes me terribly sleepy. Thanks for responding.

Oh yes, I think it happens to us all. I need to get up, make some coffee and take a break from the computer.

I get something cold such as a bottle of water or a soda and hope that will keep me awake. So you're a coffee man, that's cool. Thanks for responding.

I do. I get antsy and need to move around. Some days, when I'm not finding a lot of discussions to respond to, I take a break. I go do something else, or I post a couple of discussions, or go through my unsresolved discussions.

I wouldn't call it getting bored for me. With me it is eye strain that makes my eyes feel tired.
