You are simply stuck in a do-nothing repeat loop.

Best advice I could give would be to shut down the computer, get away 
from the machine for awhile. Take a pad and pencil with you if you 
like, but nothing more technical. It's for sketching nature or writing 
down ideas, if they come, but don't force the issue at all. Go for a 
walk in the woods (or whatever wilderness you have nearby) with a nice 
view. Take a flute or a tin whistle, some kind of small musical 
instrument might be nice, too. Avoid thinking, just let things happen.

The idea is to shed technical stuff and let your mind out of its cage 
for awhile. Clear your head. The main problem is usually just loss of
