    Default Camming with a hangover (or otherwise feeling really tired/out of it) ?

    Motivation to go online when I'm not feeling 100% is my biggest struggle, especially if I went out the night before. No matter how responsible I try to be and not drink too much/drink a lot of water, I'm not 21 anymore!

    What do you ladies do to motivate yourself and get yourself in shape to cam even when you're dragging?

    I find that discipline trumps motivation. I have a daily routine I've been doing for a while that helps me get on cam whtout even thinking about it.

    If you are not where you wanted to be should be enough motivation.

    I LOVE being a HOE. Loves it

    the responsibilities don't change just because you are getting older and want to have a night out. you still have to work. Sure you might a little slower with webcam, but keeping your hours up and making sure you checks are coming in on time is what it's all about.

    I either recommend not drinking the night before you cam or signing up for phone and texting sites and working those when you aren't feeling well.

    100% this. Sometimes I am having personal issues that make it really hard to entertain people live but doing phone sex, texting or being available on CMD has literally saved my ass so many times. I really struggle when life happens to get on cam - like if I am really sad or feeling some PTSD from stuff I have gone through in life it's so much more doable for me to float on PSO and texting income until I have it together enough to cam again. Possible making content too for that passive income but I am definitely not the expert on that.

    IT might help to consider something outside of adult aall together. it changes the work ethic mind set when it's not always about entertaining or being sexual or sexy. or anything that puts in this I am on performance mode.

    Thanks for the advice ladies!! I know I mentioned being hung over specifically but it's way more than that... I suffer from depression/anxiety and sometimes I'll have a week or two where I feel like I just can't focus or be 'on' Finding a vanilla side gig or doing texting stuff are great suggestions <3

    I also have really bad anxiety and unfortunately the best solution is to just get online anyway. Even if you don't necessarily look happy or "on", it does teach your brain that logging on isn't scary. Stay on for an hour or two and then see how you feel after that at least. Keep challenging yourself to stay on a little longer each time.

    Motivation is a fickle bitch. It's never there when you need it. Consistency is key. You have to realize that you're your own boss and you need to take yourself seriously. At most vanilla jobs you would drag yourself into work hangover or not because there would be hell to pay if you didn't. You have to get into the same groove you have when waking up and going to a "regular" job. Wake up, hop in shower, put on makeup and get dressed, turn on the computer, and do it all without thinking about it. I try not to go out or drink when I have to work the next day. I try to be responsible as well but if I have anything more than one glass of wine, I'm going to feel it the next day.

    I have really severe depression, anxiety and ADHD. I won't lie a medication (SSRI) for depression helps me the most with that (plus exercise), but barely puts a dent in my anxiety or focus. For me routine, and reminding myself, everyday, that the night is going to go by anyways, whether I cam or not.

    As well as this, I remind myself that I am going to be really down on myself, if I don't cam when I could have. That works the best, because I have taken the night off due to anxiety and felt like shit about myself for it, so many times, that it's not worth it to me to go through that mental routine again. It has also taken me several years to get to the point where I have my defenses up strong enough not to let people who are being mean/ bitter/ angry get to me. If I genuinely feel really vulnerable emotionally or mentally, I won't go on that night. I realize everyday that those people don't have the rich life that I do, and that, that is likely what drives that kind of pathetic behavior.

    I say to myself.."I am going to be awake and ready today, for X amount of hours. Of those hours I want to make sure I cam 15 mins of every hour, or 20 mins of every hour", or whatever the number is I need to make my goal. Then I do it. My anxiety if I don't do it, will actually be worse than the anxiety/ regret that I experience when I am on cam.

    Also I won't lie, sometimes just telling some asshole in my room to fuck off, when I need to, helps me sleep better at night. I know it's better to ignore trolls, but when my emotions get to a certain level of boiling, I don't have any shame in lashing back or really stinging out at someone who deserves it.

    Anyways I hope that helps. If you ever need someone to talk to, or share motivation with, just message. Several of my best friends also have very severe anxiety, I know how difficult it is to break through. Also if you have not already read the book "Feeling Good" by Dvid Burns, I would recommend it. A combination of the principles in that book, taking medication, and exercising is what helps me best through.

    Also..one more thing..c4s (www.clips4sale.com). Before I could accept that I needed to take medication, I couldn't handle live camming at all for several years, and I built up my c4s page. Now I make roughly $1500-$2000 a month doing clips alone. It is easy to post a lot of clips in fetish categories like teeth brushing, hair washing, foot play etc and really build up your store. You can post each clip in 2 diff formats, and it takes little time to make a 7 min clip of yourself brushing your hair, or crossing your legs. For years I tried to post 3-5 a day, most days, and I really built up a steady back income, when I wasn't well enough to cam.

    Also..just for the sake of info. I know some people are of the opinion that doing adult work causes depression etc..I just want to clarify and put it out there, that mine is genetic, and has been with me (and several other family members) since childhood. So doing adult work has actually helped me a lot with it, rather than vice versa. And is definitely not the cause or anything

    my advice for the less than 2 cents it's worth: stop drinking, at least temporarily.

    I remember being 15 and staying up all weekend for raves and parties; drinking straight from bottles (mixers were for pussies) and doing tons of drugs and 3 hours sleep and I'd be fresh as a daisy for school on Monday. I cut school a lot but the point is, either way I would bounce back incredibly quickly after a few days of crazy, so even if I didn't go to school I'd par with my friends just wandering around the city, work out, read books far better than those on the curriculum at the park, whatever. Would feel perfectly fine whatever I did.

    now I'm 40, even if I wanted to no way could I pull that off.

    for real though: self care in this work is so important. you NEED to get out of the house and away from your comp to maintain sanity, but you can set limits for yourself on what you do when you're out.

    If you feel like you might have a prob with booze, stop drinking period. Please. Not a road you want to go down any further.

    If it's just a matter of kinda getting lost in the moment from time to time, set a limit of one or two drinks, pay the bartender beforehand with a healthy tip and after your drink limit is up switch to water. That way he/she gets paid for the work performed (most bars don't charge for water but the bartender still performs work providing it) and you don't wake up the next day feeling like crap

    Also think about things to do that don't involve hitting bars, rather stuff that interests you all (work out together, art galleries, plays, museums, parring over coffee or the blood of infants -please know I'm so kidding-, watch movies, whatever) to avoid this issue. You still get human contact and fun and TIME OFF but you're not surrounded by bottles of booze.

    Another thing: eat. Small amounts of food eaten often won't make you feel lethargic (and also gives you breaks from work which you need). Most of the healthiest peeps I know eat snacks all day instead of the three meals a day thing. For food try to keep it as natural as possible. Fuck the government food guides and just eat small portions often of what you like that isn't processed/filled with sugar. Or if you don't want to eat but are feeling weak/tired, down a V8.

    Also drink water like a mofo. Most people don't drink enough water and that def contributes to the feeling of fatigue. Humans are weird, we're actually really dehydrated long before we feel thirsty.

    Would also recommend a multivitamin, no one ever eats all the foods that provide all the nutrients we need.

    to deal with the anxiety/depression issues, 7cups.com is a great free resource and please know we support you here too.

    Wishing ya energy and strength =)

    ^^ Also if you are out drinking be careful that your not binge drinking! I switched over to non alcoholic lemon beer cause when im drinking it I get no pressure from others to "have a drink" but I still have a glass of wine or even two with dinner and then I stop. I never drank often but when I did drink I tended to drink too much!

    Alcohol is like a virus that gets in you and starts to control your brain. Once it has control it wants to invite all its friends to hang out in your body as well! So just set your limit like one or two drinks a night or every couple of hours and have a back up drink at the ready. Water is of course the best. If I go with water then I always have it with ice and lemon and a straw cause then ppl just think its a drink and again they dont pressure you into having another.

    Down side is once you stop being drunk you probably will realize that hanging out with drunk people is a bore.

    Caffeine has been my savior. I don't drink, or smoke, so ymmv.
    I just discovered this caffeine gum.
    I was sceptical because it usually takes a lot of caffeine for me to feel the effects.
    One piece is equivalent to a half a cup of coffee.
    I was hesitant, because I can go right to sleep after drinking an entire pot if I'm exhausted.
    Luckily,
    I only had to chew one piece to get the benefit.
    Found it at CVS, but noticed it's​ sold at gas stations too.

    Thank you so much for this!! <3

    Very good point about feeling even more down on yourself if you don't cam... I had this realization the other day and it's helped me to trudge through. Sometimes ya gotta just go through the motions until true motivation comes back.

    I tend to drink pretty responsibly. Maybe once in a while I'll have a big night where I drink a bit more than necessary, but it's not really an issue for me.

    My biggest issue after drinking even a little bit/staying out late I sleep TERRIBLY so I'm a zombie the next day.
