Phew, the workday has flown by and I haven't even written my 200 words. My brain is feeling exceptionally fried today. Maybe it was the frustrating customer we had to (nicely) support. Maybe it was the annoying code that I couldn't get working. Maybe it was the internet going out when I was in the zone. Maybe it's Thursday.
Either way, it just reminds me of how important it is to look after our minds on a daily basis. Our brains are on all the time it's not surprising that people get burnt out. I was going to write about startups and the usual today but forget it. That can wait. I'm just going to let words flow through my fingers.
What do you do to take care of yourself?
A lot of people say meditate. A lot of people are big readers. I'm not really in either camp. Which I think is completely okay! Do what works for you.
I've recently found joy in drawing. Just completely disconnecting from anything work-related to create. It gives me a lot of satisfaction to finish a piece. I've always wanted to be good at drawing, I just never gave it time. Now is my chance!
Good for the brain and good for my soul. What more could I want?
