Laid Back

An intensive mental day at work (coffeecoffeecoffeecoffeecoffee) + a jog (narrowly dodging looming storm clouds) + a big salad (thanks for the greens Emily) = FIN.

There is much more I could go in on tonight, with regard to productivity.  Catching up on back personal emails.  Finishing the quarter-turn rotation & consequent reorganization of all the furniture items in my room (pro-tip: do this every few months to keep your perspective from going stale).  Preparing for my day tomorrow.  Preparing for the weekend.  Preparing for the next month.  Calculating finances.  Writing a less-lazy blog post.  Conducting forensics to determine what, exactly, caused an entire toenail to bruise purple (seriously, what the hell?).

I think instead I’ll go to bed.  It’s not a healthy mindset to believe that you’re “admitting defeat” by limiting your productive moments.  I have seen a variety of different business articles land in my work inbox with headlines touting better work is done in a concentrated few hours, as opposed to a grueling span of several.  Understanding your body and its need to recharge are especially important to maintaining a stable recovery.

Push too far too fast and we open ourselves up to a weakened constitution.  This is where slip-ups and relapses can creep — when our guard is down, and our desires become desperation.  ‘Cunning, baffling, powerful,’ as they say.

Take it easy.  One day, and one night, at a time.
