I realized that I am a weirdo when it comes to doing anything so I would like to check if there are other people who are weirdos as well.
If I am not completely suffocating in work, scared that I will miss all my deadlines, handling multiple tasks at once I just don’t know how to focus and work properly. I get anxious that I am forgetting something if I have time to rest. Please tell me you are like me because I feel weird!
I don’t know if this is the influence of “hustle” culture on me or am I just a generally anxious person, but it’s getting on my nerves. Like I have all of this time to sort out all of my tasks during the day (I am not talking only about my job) and if I don’t have something to do every second of the day, I go completely off the rails, get lazy and anxious. It is exhausting. Why can’t I take stuff one step at a time and appreciate that currently everything is going well in my life and that there’s nothing to stress about?
Even when I was a student, I studied the night before the exam. It’s like I need stress to get things done. It’s not very good for my health.
I started thinking about my weird work habits today, so I thought I would share.
Tomorrow I am going to see the nutritionist regarding my food intolerance to finally know what’s going on and then I will dedicate my weekend to finally putting out a new Youtube video and to research about my food intolerance, find some recipes and food inspiration.
I hope you are all having a great week!
Sending love and positive vibes,

What’s normal and who is normal? To be fair though the world of work needs looking at seriously as do our economic systems. The economist John Maynard Keynes predicted the shorter working week by now. What happened?
Oh my, I’m trying to fight this each day with mantras and schedules. Sometimes they work, sometimes I just laze about but I keep trying. Hopefully it’ll click.
Hi Luna. I relate a lot to your article. My self worth and self esteem used to tie in a lot to my level of productivity. I used to have this belief that If I am not exhausted, that means I am not working hard enough. That means that something is going to fall apart. I personally think that’s a very harmful belief. It took me a while to get there. Anyway, I wrote an article on the subject if you ever want to check it out. >> https://girlwithaloudpen.wordpress.com/2021/06/05/4-things-i-have-learnt-about-productivity-mental-health-and-my-relationship-to-work/
Hope you have a lovely weekend X
hi! my name is luna too haha.
i am a weirdo too, and stress myself out a lot by cramming and putting things off. don’t me like me😂.
love to your blog from the philippines! i always pove your posts.
Learn to chill and relax before you give yourself more serious mental health issues, please darling. I am now 60 and it took me 3 major breakdowns before I worked out how to stop stressing and overworking myself. Don’t want anyone else to go through that. And btw I was 50 before I realised I have Aspergers, and 60 before I understood how bullying in childhood has long-term mental health effects, all of which I had. Make friends with the child you were and care for her.
