    No Motivation for Anything

    Hello All,

    I've noticed as of late, I've got no time for anything. I don't mean this literally but just mentally I suppose. I have an interest in Photography and I would wake up early just so I can go somewhere to shoot and now, I can't be bothered to do it. This "laziness", I've found has crept its way into many areas of my life. I used to be extremely fastidious about punctuality but thats slipping as well. I have a 2-10 job and so I just get home, eat, sleep and wake up late the next day and go to work. Earlier in the year (January), I believe I initially posted on here about going abroad and while I did get into training, it soon subsided. Since August, I've been off-on work due to chest pains and that road to recovery has now ended.
    While physically I might be good now, it's my mental state of being I've noticed that has suffered. Dare I say this but, at times, I often feel like I can't contribute to anything and I can't amount to anything. My knowledge on nutrition, bodybuilding rivals that of friends who've been lifting for the past decade but despite this, I feel as though nothing will amount of me.
    I have long hair and every morning I seemingly pull out a clump of it. I still thankfully, seem to have a full head of hair but I know something needs to be done. At times, I've only ate 2 meals a day and my job is physical, yet despite this, I have a belly. I do in fact have time in the day to learn and do some hobbies yet I don't. I've sadly gotten into the routine of fapping everyday, (At times, multiple times per day). I know this ain't helping either.
    This constant mental pounding of me knowing that my life is **** and its hitting the fan is wearing me down. At times, I've looked towards the idea of suicide as a way of ending my suffering, but thankfully I suppose, I know thats too much but that means I'm just constantly in this loop. Every time I've attempted to do something, it's come across half-assed. I refer you to some of my earlier treads.

    I was wondering for those individuals who've been through similar states, could you please be kind enough to elaborate on your route to recovery.

    Many Thanks,

    I think you suffer from depression, which seeps your energy and also makes you inactive/lazy.
    You should seek professional help and maybe go into therapy.

    As for things you can do right now.
    First, figure out what you want in life and why you want it.
    Make a plan, then break that plan into smaller achievable goals and work towards it.

    If you're worried about hair loss, there are medicine out there that stops it like finasteride. It's pretty safe even though the loud minority online like to make it out to be terrible. Talk to your doctor/dermatologist about it and do research online to find out if it's for you.

    About the gym, it's simply a case of discipline and routine/habit. First day is the hardest, but once you go to the gym for 2 weeks straight, 3-4 days a week, it will feel normal.
    Then you just use discipline to keep going since it's impossible to stay motivated and feel good mentally every day.
    Some days you don't feel like going to the gym, but you go anyway because you know you have to keep going to get the results you want.

    Whether you eat 2 meals a day or 8 meals a day is irrelevant. If you eat more calories than you burn, you gain weight.
    If you want to lose your belly, then go on a diet and eat a calorie deficit.
    This forum has plenty of information. Plenty of people you can ask for advice.
    And anything worth doing is worth doing properly. Give it your 100% and stick to it if you decide to take action and you'll reap the rewards afterwards.

    But in the end, it comes down to yourself. Do you really want to make a change and fight for a better life? Or do you rather endure this miserable but ''comfortable'' life by staying where you are? It's up to you.
    Only you can decide to get back up and move forward. It all depends on how much fire you have inside you. Those smoldering coals can re-ignite. But you need to really want it and work hard.
