Lack of sleep
Lack of a feeling of control/feeling overwhelmed/being told I have to do stuff or that I’m not doing enough stuff
Having future deadlines but not being able to work on them even though I planned to work on them because other people have dropped the ball and there’s nothing I can work on in the meantime while I wait because I already did it all or I would have to get into the mindset for a completely different project and I just don’t have that mental load and I know everybody is going to get back to me at the same time too close to multiple deadlines and I’m going to be stressed out.
Eating sugar or refined carbohydrates and sugar-crashing
Low blood sugar more generally
Mild tummy aches/headaches
impatient drivers behind me who want me to risk my life making a left turn across traffic
Sometimes hormonal imbalances
Whining (other people’s not my own, and literal whining)
Did I mention people flaking out on me?
Grumpy nation, what harshes your buzz?
