"Apathy, like boredom, falls away under its own weight if you pay close attention to its mood, sensations, shape, texture, & associated tentacles—emotional & physical—from a nonjudgmental distance. Which is to say I encourage you to meditate on it. To reframe your perspective of it, as it arises, from the frame of disappointment to the frame of benevolent curiosity. With practice, this method of introspection will prevent you from falling into it, & allow it to fall past you." by Nathan I like this, Nathan! Thanks! I think my apathy right now is partly due to dealing with Meniere's, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, recent diagnoses of asthma and plantar's fasciitis, and my usual hibernation feelings around the Winter Solstice. I'm also in another grief cycle, probably letting art school go, and wondering what's my life's purpose now. I have lots of good tools, and am practicing "easy does it". I might lie on the couch for quite awhile, but try to watch good shows that either boost my mood or allow me a good cry. I'm patient. When a little whiff of energy comes by, I do something... a little walk in the sun, knit, something that I actually feel like doing, not something I'd be forcing myself to do. I googled "how do I stop apathy" and there were some very interesting articles. I'll share some highlights during another wave of alertness.
