Hey guys!

So I started my YT Channel about a month ago, and ever since I have forgotten how to simply "relax". I am always thinking of what I can incorporate on my channel that I can't sit still. When I try to relax, I ended up feeling like I'm being lazy and that I should be recording, editing, etc.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this lol

I feel the same way, although I am a bit different, if I am not distracting myself, I start to panic and have an existential crisis, so its best for me to always be doing something, or at least listening to music. I do sometimes feel lazy about watching shows or playing video games while not recording, cause I wanna make the best content I can, and the more time spent producing the content means the better it will be, right? I've been trying to convince myself for a long time the relaxing isn't bad, and that I should be able to sit down and watch my favorite shows without feeling guilty, but it's an uphill battle. I hope this helped you!

Dude yes, ok that makes me feel ALOT better! I just want to find a healthy balance because I'll drive myself mental otherwise. I end up talking myself into editing every time and stay up until the way hours of the morning nodding off. Then I'll wake up early AM and go back to editing. Sheesh.

This youtuber life is no joke lol

I'm like this generally - I often feel guilty if I'm not being productive (even when I'm watching TV I'm thinking about what else I could be doing)
