Question. I’ve noticed lately that after events involving people I zone out. It’s not low energy (except after hikes with friends) it’s like I can’t focus or don’t want to.
Some recent examples: job interview yesterday - wasn’t too stressful, think I did well, but just zoned out doing none of the things I had to do. After sessions with my counselor - zone out rest of the day. Go hang out with friends earlier in the day - zone out.
Yeah, some of it can be attributed to too much exercise outdoors (sun, even if using sunscreen supercharges me). I’ve not noticed this before.
Now some background - I’m out of work, looking for jobs, slight depression but (as per my counselor) I’m way superpositive compared to the average person in my situation. So interacting with people for an extended period besides people in shops doesn’t happen that often for me since I got laid off from my last job in January. I never really experienced this before. Thoughts? Sometimes I try to schedule these events in the evening so if I’m zoned out, well, I’m going to bed anyhow, but for the times I can’t, I feel like “**** there’s another day wasted.”
Anyone else have this problem?
