Stuck in a rut

I've been feeling bored and out of sorts lately. It's as though there's something I want to do or that there's I'm expecting to happen or something else I'm waiting for. It's hard to describe. I feel kind of impatient as well as cranky and dissatisfied with just about everything - as if nothing is right, somehow - and at the same time I feel like I could burst into tears at any second.

Part of me feels like I need to sew or make jewelry or do something else creative because my mind and creativity has become slow and sluggish. I have my metalsmithing class and I'm enjoying that, as you know, but I feel like I need to do something more during the day - that sitting in front of the tv while surfing the interwebs just isn't creatively or intellectually stimulating enough.

I also feel very physically sluggish. I wonder if I need to change up my routine and do some more physical activity like go out for a walk or get some exercise on our stationary bike. I see the sunshine from inside but I'm not out there listening to the birds chirp or breathing in the outside air.

I guess I'm in a bit of a rut and the more I stay in it, the easier it is to stay there and the more bored and impatient I become. I think I'm going to try to shake up my routine a bit in the hopes that this mood will pass.

I've had that same feeling, too. Yesterday, however, we had beautiful warm and sunny weather and it made me feel so good! I simply sat in the sun for a while and it seemed to give me new vitality. Today, I plan to take a little walk (although it's not as warm today)and I'm hoping for the same energizing effect.

i call that restless sensation (where i am bored yet irritable and lazy and uneasy), the "shit-or-go-blind" feeling. i haven't figured out a cure except for overriding it with forced activity.
