I’ve been pretty focused over the last couple of weeks, even on the weekends. The last couple days, though, I deliberately decided to disconnect. No checking in with email. I even disconnected from the news a bit. I’ll partially regret this tomorrow, but it was necessary.
I do this fairly regularly. It often comes at the end of many intense days. What might be better would be to schedule it instead. To look ahead and say, there, those days. And I’d love to do something besides escape into TV and video games. Nature. Books. Time with other people. It’s an aspiration.
But even if it’s not perfect, it’s still a good thing.
