  1. I would assume that you have used up all the resources of your brain, and now it refuses to work. In the truest sense of the word. It may very well be that this is not a problem of your will or determination, or even a lack of desire and motivation, but a purely physiological problem.

    Imagine that your brain is sick. Not in the sense of a mental disorder, but just as sick as muscles that are overworked and torn after super-intense training, or the body refuses to get out of bed after 2 hours of sleep in preparation for a heavy session.

    This happens, especially often in people who are engaged in hard intellectual work – unlike ” tired muscles that hurt, brain fatigue is almost impossible to notice in time and can easily be triggered to a pathological state.

    There are many ways to restore the brain to its former efficiency and make the mitochondria in neurons generate energy for you again: you can read and listen to it on the Internet for days (although most of the information is in English).

    As basic recommendations, I can advise you to change your nutritional habits by giving up sugar in any of its manifestations (except for fruits and berries), carbohydrate-containing (especially flour) products: buns, macaroni, potatoes-all this is to declare what you don't want anymore, introduce more healthy fats into your diet (red fish, lard, olive oil, avocado, fish oil in the form of additives), give up harmful ones (sunflower oil, sour cream, mayonnaise), replace everything fried with baked in the oven or on the grill, start eating everything cooked (except meat, of course) raw and crispy. This will force your body to adjust to a more efficient metabolism and your brain will start receiving a lot of energy again.

    In parallel with this, it is advisable to introduce moderate physical activity and mobility: walking, light running, yoga, high-intensity interval training, swimming in the pool, and give up heavy physical activities (exercise equipment, exhausting hour-long crosses, etc.at least for a while).

    Keep track of how you use your time, writing down every second what you started and finished doing, right down to going to the bathroom, smoking cigarettes, and “staring out the window without thinking.” At the end of the day, put down the pros and cons, depending on whether you see these activities as giving you energy or using it. I'll assume that your homework took away your energy (this may change later, but now it does), and breakfast added energy to you.

    It is clear that this is an extremely subjective view, but it is about you, your body and your perception of energy (I am now trying to speak not in the esoteric, but in the physical sense, although it can be understood in the esoteric, the essence of the method will not change).

    Do not include sleep in any of the categories, because sleep is an energy-consuming process, during which you do not restore strength, as is commonly believed, but only clean your body (including the brain) from the products of your own vital activity accumulated during the active part of the day). We will consider this an energy-neutral process.

    After collecting statistics for a few days, you can see that (most likely) energy-intensive tasks (let's call them productive) take up at least 2/3 of your active time, and tasks that add strength, energy and inspiration to you (let's call them resource-based) take less than 1/3.

    Now your next task is to imagine all the things that can be resource cases for you: It can be watching movies, playing video games, masturbating, meditating, talking to your grandmother, drawing-everyone has their own list and it changes over time. Most likely, you don't do most of them right now, but only want to or dream of doing them. Now is the time to fulfill your desires.

    After the list is compiled, you need to clearly set the boundaries: half of your active time (about 8 hours) you devote yourself to productive activities that use your energy, but are important in terms of your goals. The other half (about 8 hours) you devote yourself to resource activities that fill you up, restore your strength and give you inspiration and the desire to live and work further. Remaining time (8 more hours) you are sleeping.

    In this way, you will create a balanced schedule where your efforts are equal to rest and recovery, which, combined with a balanced diet and balanced physical activity, will re-launch your “shrunken” brain cells, as well as make your life more harmonious and whole.

  2. In such cases, it is important to:

    1. How long does this period last at the time when the situation began to worry, and how did it manifest itself-suddenly or did everything go on increasing?
    2. What exactly is this “wildly stupid and stops thinking about the simplest topics”? Always? From time to time? In all cases or selectively?
    3. Having collected and systematized all this information, you need to go to the doctors with it. Most likely, it will be a therapist, neurologist, endocrinologist, psychotherapist, all together or separately. It is better to start with a therapist (only a good one), he will orient you further.

    In general, about the state: this can be overwork, hormonal failure, or a psychological reaction to an event. Or maybe the beginning of the disease. So the sooner the picture becomes clearer, the better.

  3. Suspected hormone surge… The hormonal storm has arrived! And this is a sea of contradictory emotions, and emotions are not in themselves helpers of the mind… And here the goal position changes altogether. And if the strong-willed apparatus is not very strong, our ship will go through all the hardships)

  4. The answer most likely lies in the elementary cramming of a school or institute program, not the point. When a person has crossed the threshold of his knowledge, which he received in the course of training, he suddenly realizes that he does not really know anything. That's where you need to start expanding your horizons before it's too late. For example, the law of universal gravitation. Where else can it be observed, except in the textbook? Such a question will obviously not have an answer for the person who stupidly learned it and told the teacher!
