I didn’t turn on my computer, respond to emails, or spend time worrying about what needed to be done. Yesterday was a day of rest. I spent the first part of the weekend at home, taking care of animals and catching up on work while Matt was in Chicago at a track meet. He arrived home at 530am after driving through the night, so he was clearly in need of a recovery day. We spent Sunday with friends: sharing good food, conversation and enjoying the amazing weather. It’s amazing how restoring a day off is, whether you believe in the biblical reasons for doing so or not I highly recommend it.
I am usually one to multitask with things on all the proverbial burners, and having my own business has only added to those tendencies. I have to pry myself away from no only doing work but thinking about it. Slowly I’ve started to get better, but i still have to be intentional about taking time off and then staying productive when I am actually at work. This weekend I was successful at relaxing, and now it’s time to get things done.
