Marcus Aurelius, one of the most powerful people in the world, had trouble getting out of bed.

It's human, universal, - you're not alone. 😊

>At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: β€œI have to go to work β€” as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for β€” the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm?”
- Meditations, Marcus Aurelius

@viciousviscosity As an Epicurean, though, I reject Stoicism and hold that I was in fact created to huddle under the blankets and stay warm - in moderation.

@ghost_bird In moderation, hmm? 😁
Does that account for about 2 days a week? πŸ˜‰

@viciousviscosity Epicurus is all about a peaceful life that’s free of pain (physical and mental), so...

@viciousviscosity i own this book and have read it cover to cover multiple times. Seriously its one of 2 physical books i still own after going full epub.

@viciousviscosity As a lifelong stoic, I still think "well, maybe this is my purpose" and hit snooze.

@viciousviscosity - No, no. Huddling under blankets and staying warm is nice. I mean, at some point get up... but enjoy being in a warm blanket for a bit.
