    I usually just let it pass till I go into the productive mood again.

      That's the thing I'm currently doing. I want to control and balance these waves somehow. I don't know when it's coming, when it'll go away. It's really annoying.

        Sometimes you don't have the option to just wait until you "feel" like it again.

        For me personally, I have been trying to figure out a freelance schedule/workflow that works for me.

        The greatest success I've had is to change my scenery. Today for instance, I was working at home and then suddenly didn't feel like working on what I needed to. I biked and to a coffee shop and was able to focus and get stuff done!

        Journal and take notes on how your routine/process is working (or not working). This has been tremendously helpful for me as well.

        Keep going, you got this! Great question!
