Finding Joy in Tedium: Why Repetition bleeds Into Everything We Love

Time and time again, tedium breaks its way into our daily routines. It can be something resourceful, something that can build itself into a great asset. Other times and frankly the most common, is that it turns into a device that worms its way into our daily routines. Often this feeling inspires burnout, lethargic writing or usually just uninspired feelings in all. The toughest part is turning that issue into something positive and inspiring.

I’m not stranger to this issue. Anime has been something that I have struggled to engage with for the past few months. It’s not something that I find tasteful anymore. I have had a hard time digging through the slog of titles that I find interesting versus the titles I would find practical for reviewing. Balancing out the personal likes versus my blogging preferences. The hardest part is figuring out how to engage both of them, while still finding some semblance of middle ground. Respectfully, it is harder than it seems. Finding a way to turn something that you love, while also dreading having to watch something that drains you so much.

The fit to my dilemma has been something else entirely, I have focused on engaging in activities that don’t directly relate to what I am feeling for out over. Take for example my push from anime to gaming. Sure it looks as if I am just shunning anime and ignoring it entirely, but it turns out that anime if popping back into the picture in other aspects. I am finding shows more appealing and I feel less forced to focus on shows for purely reviewing. It’s all because of a distraction, something that causes my mind to focus and wander elsewhere.

While this may not be a solution for many of you it is a direct solution for some. Just having your mind elsewhere causes you to reevaluate choices and interests. Be that moving your focus to gaming or to another hobby of interest for you. Just remember that you will inevitably run into the same exact issue with this new interest as well.
