You will never be a cat. You have no whiskers, you have no tail, you have no fur. You are a homo sapien twisted by excessive internet usage and autism into a crude mockery of nature's perfection - penguinblanket

How the hell do you motivate yourself to put mental effort into something you don't care about?
It's so easy for me to do boring, but necessary, physical tasks (moving boxes, doing the dishes, cleaning up a room) and so hard to do their mental equivalents (writing a work email, typing up a report, doing my taxes, etc.) Forcing myself to actually think about boring things is insufferable.

@赤い男 Man, when I'm in a depressive episode, I get ungodly amounts of caffeine until I stop blinking. I sit the fuck down and do work properly. I call it "simulating hypomania/mania" and fuckin hell it works. Funny enough it increases delusions and hallucinations, so I don't always do it. But fucking hell, it works damn well to get shit done

Sounds like a good thing, i would actually do it, but lately caffeine doesn't have the same effect lately huh.

Caffeine does the trick to me, I'm rather sensible to the stuff so it doesn't really take much.
What happens to me is that I need to do something that gets me a bit dazed so I stop my ability to think about things I would actually like to be working at, but without the impairment that comes with something like alcohol.
Nicotine also does the trick, but I reserve that one for studying. A quarter of a nicotine gum gives you that extra kick to focus, but I have some rules surrounding nicotine gum to not abuse it or become addicted.
1-half a gum per day at most, with a few hours in between quarters
2-only during boring/stressful tasks, never recreationally
3-only three consecutive days of use at most.
Have been doing it over a year and it works for me, I used a single package of gum, just recently ran out. 24 gums.

Both of those approaches end up with me feeling like shit, it's a bit punishing on the body, but I think that exhaustion is what I need to make me numb to life-wasting tasks.
