Hey, y’all. In last week’s Thursday thoughts, I wrote about my Saturday writing schedule did not go as planned. What I didn’t say was when I tried to write on Sunday, I was exhausted and didn’t get anything done.
That put me two days behind. However, DH pointed out that I had been going pretty strong with writing. “You need to take a day off,” he said.
He was right. By Monday night, even though I had worked at my day job, I felt much more rested. Ideas began to flow again, and I managed to get a decent word count that evening.
Since then, I’ve decided to take Sundays off. No writing. I plan to limit my time on social media and checking emails. Those items are a process, as I do have a social media addiction. I’m also a bit OCD about having a clean email inbox.
Sunday afternoons are now devoted to reading. It’s fun and relaxing.
Everyone needs time off. Do you have a set time away from writing and social media? How does it work for you? Do you set aside time just for reading? I’d like to hear how it works for you.
I’m keeping this post short, but since I’ve shared videos with the previous two Thursday Thought posts, I’ll leave you with one by my favorite Beatle. It’s also my all-time favorite Beatles’ song. It’s not related in any way to today’s topic, but I think this acoustic version is relaxing. And we could all use a little more relaxation.
