Hello MYLOTTERS, I have been now 1.5 month old on MYLOT and remain always excited to respond to other's discussion every time i log on to MYLOT but i don't what happened yesterday i was not willing to respond as i normally do daily.There can be several reasons for it may be i was not in a mood to participate in discussion??.May be i was not finding any discussion which i find interesting for me???. May be their were less MYLOTTERS yesterday here and were busy in their offline work so there was less of participation here???.I still could not understand what was it???. Does it happen to you all also sometimes or it never happened in your life here on MYLOT???

Yes it happens to me sometimes too and I think today is the day. i am feeling kinda bored and can't seem to think straight about what to write. I have been wanting to start a discussion but I can't think of anything for the life od me. Gosh I don't know why I feel so tired and down today. Maybe it's coz I woke up really early!!

Waking up early does not mean that you will feel tired.Actaully if you wake up early you will be fresh all day long. I dont know about you or others but it is so with me.when ever i wake up at 5 or 6 am i feel very fresh all day but when i wake late like at 9 or 10 i feel very tired.I also find every thing boring when i wake up late.

Yeah I think it differs from people to people. I woke up today at 5am and i was drowsy the whole day!! I usually wake up at 7am and I feel ok then. I guess it depends on your daily routine. you start early, I start a bit late :)

@ That girl getting up in morning before your daily routine time will definitely make you feel drowsy whole day may be that is the reason for your not able to get ideas at present may be some rest will help you to make your mind fresh and will help to generate more & quality ideas. @ Humanicon Sometimes when i go to sleep late night and get up early than my fixed time then it always make me feel tired whole day i also feel drowsy whole day.If you get up late and still you find it boring then you should also go to movie or some picnic with your friend to make your mind fresh.

Hi sjvg We all get that sometimes. But you are doing very well for a 1.5 month old myLotter compared to a 7 months old. Sometimes when the mood is not there, any interesting discussion will automatically seem uninteresting to us as our mind can't seem to work very well at that time. Don't worry too much, your mood will be back to normal again soon. Sometimes we just need to take some time off from doing the same thing everyday. Maybe this is a time for you to switch channel for a while and try some other new things, be it offline or online.

That would be a good idea, a movie would keep you relaxed for the time being. I look forward to you coming back with double energy.

There are many days here where I try coming in here and just not interested in posting while other days I am glad to be posting away. Also a lot of it depends on how busy I might be or what I am interested in talking about as well. But since I have a lot of friends here, and a lot of different interests, etc. that I like to talk about it is usually never hard if I am in the mood to find something to respond back too.

Hello KrauseHome, Sometimes really we feel like doing nothing. On those particular day we even don't like to write anything but to talk to friends in MYLOT is a good option we should contact them and should search an interest which could arrest the bad mood.

Hello sajeevk, its long time i have been seeing you here.For me also if you get bored you responses also get effected and somehow you lag quality in the responses.Its always nice to have breaks whenever you get a feeling like i got.

I know what boredom feels like. I've been on this site for a couple of months now but I haven't been on in while because I've been trying to pursue my blogging career. It's normal to hit a slump sometimes even if you're on a website. Slumps happen to all of us but many of us will get out of it some type of way.

Hello Angel, Yes slumps come to every one and one can himself find the ways to come out of it.

Yes it occasionally happens to almost everyone that sometimes a person feels to have some solitude and thus avoids any public participation or discussion in order to switch over for short period of time to other brighter and equally interesting things to do. But we cannot say that it was a boring day for us because at the end of day we will find that this attitude has rejuvenated and refreshed my interest again and thus allows to participate again with full vigour and interest in that particular task .

Hello satya, It depends on person to person some person don't find it rejuvenated at the end of the day also.But for me also that is temporary and can be nullified once get a break.

Hello Dear sjvg! This thing happens with almost everybody on this site!I basically think it is either because of over participation or temporary lack of drive and motivation at that period, the situation becomes like that! We find that such members are taking some rest during that period and rejoining this site after few days with full rejuvenated energy! !! When ever I face the situation like you mentioned , I simply come to this sit and go to some other peoples discussion just to have a fun! I don't participate in the discussion but simply go through them! Some time I go to some one's profile if I find the topic under the discussion is interesting and so on! !! Thus, though I am present on the sit I normally don't participate actively! Just a few days back it happened with me and I had '0' earnings on that day! LOL! This is a normal phenomenon , so take it easy and cheer up, to post some quality postings! All the best and happy Mylotting! !!

I think it is due to over participation & think i should really go for rest for sometime & return with double energy. I also follow sometimes like you reading old discussions & rating responses sometime its fun to read responses.

I am sure you are the only one who can answer these questions. I feel like this almost every day lately and my participation is going less and less. I feel tired somehow I guess.

Happened to me a lot of times. Once I got home from a trip and I couldn't do much since I was so tired. I logged on and started to browse for discussions but I just wasn't in the mood to do anything. But the next day when I was all rested up I started posting like crazy and I found a lot of discussions interesting.

Hello PTP, It depends on your body also if you are tired you won't like to do anything even responding discussions unlike when you are fresh & will definitely find many of the discussions interesting and you will reply to those.

hello sjvg, That happens sometimes when i am moody. When bad mood strikes me and i can't focus on responding or writing comments,all i do is read old topic and done the unresolved by giving the br mark. That even helps me to kick in again...esp when i come to old topics and reading the comments injects inspiration that brings me back to my senses

Hello Jaiho, Yes this is the best way you can regain interest.I also find it useful sometimes it seems to give more fun than participating in discussions.

Yes,it also happens to me from time to time to be in a bad moon and feel completely uninspired,and there are also days in which I hardly find any interesting discussions to respond,so when that happens I take a break from my online activities annd try to relax for 20 minutes and then get back and see if my mood gets better.If it doesn't,I don't force myself anymore,it's useless,I simply stop working and come back the next day.

I like boring day, that because they just have the best chance to become interesting and memorable. Do not consider unexpected, that little ingredient that should be in every recipe of life. True, it may be of two kinds, good and evil, but today I want to speak first. Is it me or see a bit of astonishment on the faces of those who have found, for several months now, only depressive positions here? We like to plan your day, week, life. I wonder how many times we were respected script? Too little, otherwise I am not generalize and reach conclusions with negative implications when it comes to the concept of "life." I find it funny how you continue, involuntarily, to do exactly the same. Should happen again and again, something we have designed, right? When you're down, you will not only rocks and potholes. Hence the ALA heartbreaking feeling, that takes care to include every part of your life. We all need a day to stop the alarm, you still want to sleep, but nice to receive news that make us smile. Or one to arrive at the stadium, although initially you thought that the hour because you'd been in bed in your room, under a warm blanket and sleeping. Felt that it was summer. Not because of high temperatures, but the feeling of warmth that rushed into my soul. Ah, I said I love how the days that supposed to be boring, but returning to 180 degrees in seconds?

You are really very active my friend.you are here from only 1.5 month and you are already nearing 1000 count which is unlike other mylotters who are very old but have only 100 counts. Today i was feeling the same way you were feeling yesterday.I opened mylot and started reading discussions.I read many discussions but found every topic boring, so i left them with out responding.fortunately i found yours after some time.And now after reading your discussion I am feeling charged.Thank you for getting me charged.Now i will go back to all the topics and respond to them.

I am not eenough here yet to tell. But it seems like you might want to go to your interests column more when you get bored? Does that work any better? It seems if you go to specific interests, you might have more luck finding something that appeals to you. Other than that, I think that anything you're used to doing every day can feel boring, no matter what it is.

Hello RJlady1, Welcome to MYLOT!! I also feel if i limit my self to more specific interest i may fnd something interesting. Also over participation may can cause boredom.

This is the opposite of what I called the "mylot sickness" and yes it also happened to me in many cases already, and might as well with others, too. There are those times when I couldn't stay longer than 5 minutes here, just not feeling like it. Don't worry, the doctor says it's normal.

Hi! If you would look at our numbers, you can easily tell that I've not been really that active here. In fact, there were months when I absolutely did nothing here. The reason I came back is I now can see how fun mylot could be and I'm enjoying more than before. It is normal for us from time to time to feel bored at something we usually have fun doing like our work and like using mylot and other sites.

Thats means i should hibernate and come back. But i know thats due to over participation we feel that i also think i should give me a break and come back with more enthusiasm as i will regain interest.

Yeah, I sometimes feel that way too. Maybe after a stressful and brain draining day I become reluctant to think and respond to different topics. Also, sometimes I don't feel interested on the topics flashed on my homepage that I just login and quickly logout. I really don't know if it's because of the amount of myLotters available but I guess it's not. It's just one of those days that it seems I'm not in the mood for talking and thinking. I think it's but just natural.

Hello Ag, Your mood always play major role in your participation here on MYLOT.But sometimes if you have good mood also you don't get time as you are occupied with offline jobs.
