I was chatting with @eatlikenooneelse yesterday about what I do on those “off” days. Sometimes writing the entire day off IS necessary when our minds and bodies need rest. But sometimes I know I need to press on and get some dang work done. Ironically, an “off” day hit me hard today. My husband’s foot (post-surgery) isn’t healing. He’s in pain. I’m exhausted. This morning we found out our oldest son will likely need his 4th open heart surgery this summer.
I sat down at my desk this afternoon and wanted to do nothing. Instead, I pulled out my “mindless tasks” list and started digging into it. This is the ONLY way I’m able to stay productive on days like today.
What do YOU do on your “off” days? Do you have tricks for staying productive when you’d rather take a nap? (And, uh, sometimes a nap is necessary, for the record.)
