Why am I too bored to do anything? I just dont feel motivated?

I hardly exercise. And I used to love it.

I used to be addicted to reading. Now I can't read more than 10 pages. I used to find video games really fun. After having not played one in 6+ years, I cant seem to enjoy them.

I used to masturbate at least twice a day. Now, 3 or 4 times a month (but, that is a choice - but still, I'm not as horny).

The only thing I do that I somewhat enjoy is writing my thoughts down. But I mainly do it to keep track of them - for neccessity.

I should mention, i dont think I am completely anhedonic.

    Bored people usually have TOO Many things to do, they just cannot make up their mind which to do first.

    Gamers get Bored when the game is beyond their skills or the puzzles exceed their intelligence,

    How to break the boredom? Put the activities on strips of paper (or cards) put them in a box, shake it up. Then draw one. DO THAT task for a minimum time, like two hours.

    When you have finished the time period then draw again, and so on.

    You should find a rekindling of subject.

    sometimes in life, motivation has to come from within, because there will be nobody there to do it for us.
