Since it seems to have even reached me on the forum, why not make a topic about it. :p (I was really already thinking about making this topic last week, tbh. So no, Simu, not because of that one silly mistake. Was just the last drop. xD )
For the past months, I've been working on average 75 hours a week with variable schedules, day and night shifts, bits here and there. And physically I feel fine. Better then before in fact. The more I do, the more physically energized I find myself. But I've been losing my edge lately nonetheless.
Where I was spotting patterns, recognizing behaviours and coming up with one eureka moment after another. I've found that I haven't been able to go that far anymore.
I still have my moments, but I've been misjudging things in real life quite a bit the past few weeks in particular. And I've been slow to reach solid conclusions. Where they would usually pop in on the spot before.
It's like my brain is operating at half speed. And I don't like it! Since I'm quite fond of my brain. Or at least, when it works the way I want it too.
Is living a healthy and active life putting a toll on my ability to think? I sure hope not. Yet I do find myself analysing much less. My usual focus is shaky. I'm in need of some advice! How can I get my brain working again, while working as much as I do? I'm pretty sure there are plenty of hard working people that do not seem to have this problem.
edit: When I think about it, the reason I started coming here more often again the past week is in order to try and challenge my thoughts more again, unconsciously. O_o'
