Yep. Me and Jules Breton.

Some days I am full of energy which I can focus and get lots done.

Some days are just.... eh.

I look at my To Do list. There's so much to do, and deadlines by which to do it. But I can't find the Get Up and Go Juice to get me going. There is no motivo-mojo in my stream.

Can't I just lie here and stare at the ceiling?

I know I'm plagued by Eh when I can't even bring myself to read a book because it would take too much effort.

Fortunately, this feeling does not last for long and tomorrow will be a more productive day. My Day Job will allow time off for illness, but doesn't yet offer time off for Can't Be Bothered.

Today's question: When you're plagued with Eh, do you seek motivation or do you simply ride it out?
Her Grace accepts Eh for what it is--a passing state. If you're not completely lacking in motivation, here's a book with a character who had motivation to get something done.

Who has the energy to seek motivation if they're having a Meh day. Or an Eh day if they can't even garner the energy for that "M." Not I.

Oh, I know EXACTLY what you mean. And that GIF expresses it perfectly!

Eh is a terrible plague. I go into automatic pilot. I used to kind of panic over these periods, but now I just force myself to do what I can. Luckily, my day job is a good place to be for "eh" because there are enough automatic tasks that don't require my full brain to be present. Unfortunately, eh has taken quite a toll on my writing over the years. It is no fun, no fun.
