do you think coming onto mylot every single day is a good idea? cos for some reasin..today i just can;t connect with it..i feel totally drained..do you think it's a good idea to sometimes take the odd day off to replenish the mylot battery..or do you think we should log in everyday regardless?

Considering the fact that you won't get hungry by not earning for a day or two from Mylot - nickles and dimes, really - I advise you to treat Mylot as any other hobby you may have: with moderation. If your hobby would be, let's say, mountainbiking through rough terrains... one day on your bike: great! next day on your bike: great! third day on your bike: good. Fourth day in a row: okay... fifth day: well, why not. Sixth day on a row: oh my God.... Having a hobby is great, being on it every day after day after day is exhausting, and NOT FUN ANYMORE! I enter MyLot a few times a day, for maybe 15 minutes. And I skip days as well... That's enough for me. This way it stays fun to be active on this site. You, you just have to kick off a bit and take it easy ;-)

I feel the same way at times. Some days i come to my computer to login and i just don't feel like sitting here. It might have alot to do with being on the computer so much during the day. who really knows? but everyone needs a break at times.

we all deserve to have breaks. it's our responsibility to give ourselves some time outs to rest. however, there are also times when we just have lots of ideas to share and that it seems that we can't stop typing.

Taking a break is always good. I don't work on the weekends. I don't even turn on the computer. It's always good to have time for yourself. Give yourself a break. It'll be good for you.

I try to log in at least once a day. But you are right, sometimes I just am so tired I can't even watch tv. I think since I have started using this site, I have missed 3 days all together. I don't always post a lot, but I do try to get on here when I can. I enjoy it so much.

I like having a couple days off even though I would like to have the earnings too. It was nice to recently take a couple days away from the computer and try to think about other things other than typing all day long. It gave me time to refresh because sometimes you run out of things to say because your mind gets so tired. I try to at least login daily but I don't always get to post or reply. I have to have a couple days to get things done around the home.

I think sometimes you can get to a point when you really need a rest - lets face it mylot can be quite draining trying to think up decent discussion, then replying to discussions with a good answer! I think maybe you should at least take half a day off and recharge your battery! I did that on Sunday and came back yesterday feeling alot better for it!!

A couple of days ago I felt slow and tired while trying to type on the site, but I kept going anyway. Until and unless I can find other money making opportunties, this is the best one that I have, so I can't really afford to take a day off unless I just cannot be online for some reason. If you don't need the money as much as i do and you feel you need a day off, I think that you should take one! You will probably come back feeling much more refreshed. I just cannot afford to do that, personally. But I think that it is good to take a break if you can.

I use mylot everyday, I can feel someday's I am not in the mood for a whole lot. I stay at home so It is like an out side link to me. I enjoy meeting the new people and responding to the discussions. I know as I keep going though my feeling is likely to change but until then I am having fun. I think we should do the things that make us happy.

You need to have some rest and recreation from time to time. Being a workoholic at mylot will definetely drain you out. Despite of having a simple strategy of earning from 0.50 to about 1.50 daily average, I still takes time off. I wish I have a zillion referrals earning for me. Unfortunately, I am doing it all by myself.

i do log in everyday here. but not spend lots of times at some days. i also feel drained at times. like i don't feel like responding at all. even if there are lots of interesting discussions, i don't seem to have interest in typing down my opinions. when this happens to me, i simply log out, do some chores, taka a short nap and when i am recharged, i log in back to mylot and i feel a lot better.

I have days and times like that. I also have days when I have no time, or very little time, to spend on myLot. I think whatever fits your lifestyle is what you should do. I know if I cannot "get into it" at any time, I might as well go do something else.

I haven't hit the wall yet, but I think taking a day off now and then is a good idea. At least your reaction will tell you whether you're in danger of becoming addicted. Maybe we need a list of the danger signs. I"ve cut back on the length of my sessions to avoid burnout.
