My partner was talking to his friend about me and admitted he doesn't know what I do for fun on a daily basis. It's true - I don't do anything and time just disappears and I hate it. I don't do anything because I cannot actively procrastinate on my work, but then I still somehow end up procrastinating.

    I used to be that way. It caused later issues between my ex and I. It's hard to find motivation sometimes

        I definitely understand. I barely have mine manageable.

    Same. People ask what I do on the weekend and it's very often "nothing". I do have projects, sewing, writing, reading, don't always tackle them.

      Same. I love art and have all I need, but I lack motivation for entertaining activities

        I feel like that's one of the defining traits of ADHD tbh. Being too overwhelmed to do things you'd actually enjoy besides the things like work.

    My first reaction to this was to think daily is too much... HA. I was so wrong ! We all should try to do something that brings us joy once a day. For me it's going on an extra walk with my dog, spend extra time with my coffee in the morning before starting work, etc.

      (also I thought that the list of things always has to be "hobbies", but they can just be self-care 🤗)

        This!🤗 I've been trying extra hard lately, to adopt this way of thinking! My kids are 6 & nearly 10, so finding a spare Me Moment is slightly easier than when they were younger, but still few & far between. But thinking of it as just letting myself have some joy for that day feels easier than forcing a hobby, that I don't currently have the motivation/creativity for. ❤️
