Chocolate chip cookie always makes me feel better!

Seriously though, sorry you’re having a bummer of a day! I think we all feel the way you are describing from time to time. What helps me is to have projects. I don’t know what sort of work you do, but if you are not assigned a mentally “meaty” project – can you find one for yourself?

On slow days, I’ve found several projects which were not requested by my boss, but once I did them, and sort of casually explained them to him (i.e., “oh, if in the future you are looking for x, y, z – I’ve done it, and saved a copy on my pc” etc.) and he seemed impressed that I took the initiative – and it keeps m from starting at the clock.

They don’t have to be huge projects – just something that is (at least somewhat) interesting to you and will get your brain refocused.
Good luck!
