When you need a rest you try to sleep.
Feeling tired after getting up makes you think about vacation.
Sipping coffee near the sea sounds perfect. Does it?
Climbing all day to take a soup near the fire draws some wild romantic in imagination. Dreams? Or just a fantasy — What are you going to do to make your soul relax?
Looking for relaxation might have several sources: tiredness, mental burnout, or medical.
That’s why visiting a doctor in case of heavy chronic apathy symptoms is a vital plan!
I wonder how a simple cold made me feel apathetic in the second week of September. Now I write these words and smile as just a few days ago I was about to change my whole life just to start feeling aspiration to all my numerous dreams, plans I’ve had. Glad that found out such a strange side effect of cold in time. Yes, medicines cut that “power saving mode” out and bright colors came back to my reality.
But that’s the occasional situation. The chronic apathy that has nothing to do with health issues relates to the soul and wellness. They are both important parts of a personality we all have inside and enjoy being.
So, how to feed that mental hunger?

Nonetheless, 30 minutes of light morning exercises are beneficial for us from any side. The best side is to avoid the temptation of getting back to bed.
