5 Tips To Get Over Mental Fatigue

5 Tips To Get Over Mental Fatigue

3. Go for a walk

There comes a time in every writer’s life when you realize that you’re completely and utterly exhausted, not physically that can be slept off, I’m talking about mental exhaustion. It’s like that time in the morning when you are half awake but mostly asleep, so everything seems to take a minute for you to process; except, this sustained grogginess doesn’t disappear after a few seconds. Mental fatigue follows you like a pestering bug that keeps flying near your ear. However, there is hope for whoever reads this article to overcome the tidal waves of irritability that wash over them when overexerting one’s mental muscle.

This is a list of five things to do to get over mental fatigue.

1. Mindlessly watch television

In any other instance I hold the viewing of television as an important viewing experience (maybe because I watch too much of it), but sometimes just letting your mind go and laughing for a bit can be therapeutic.

2. Go for a run

This may seem like a complete departure for the couch potatoes who settled on mindlessly watching television; however, a run is the exact remedy for mental fatigue because it allows you to let go of your thoughts for a while.

3. Go for a walk

If I didn’t lose people before from running I’m sure suggesting walking will chase the rest away. I’m not suggesting some mundane stroll down boring sidewalks. I’m talking about walking through a park, find a field of flowers, or walk in the snow (which makes more sense because it is winter).


4. Scroll through social media

Any one who is reading this article has probably already done this many times today, but never shrug this off as nothing, because if you’re mentally exhausted a few light-hearted YouTube videos can really help.

5. Sing

Another activity not many would jump at the chance of doing, nonetheless it’s still effective, and think about it if someone did this every time they had mental fatigue their voice would begin to sound so good from practicing all the time.

I bet after reading this many people will think, “I could’ve come up with these tips myself,” and my only response would be, “You just realized this after reading the entire article, well you made it to the end, so your frustration is mostly your fault.”

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
