It’s a word often on my mind lately.
I know we live in frustrating times.
Staying at home indefinitely.
Zoos, libraries, parks, and big public events closed.
We miss the fellowship of others.
Heck, I look forward to waving at our mail carrier.
Lately, I have been feeling unproductive. Know it’s due to a variety of things. This week it is mostly to poor sleeping— my youngest daughter is teething. Three hours of sleep some nights.
But hope is never gone.
Things that helped me stay sane (somewhat):
🏈 Playing catch with my oldest son and teaching him plays.
📚 Reading— it is the food for mental health. Our brain not only needs information, but craves good information. Visit your residential library in your dens or basements.
🙌 Celebrate success— tagging connections and promoting their content with no strings attached helps reorient my mindset.
Joy blossoms. We need as much light now.
Step outside. Enjoy the outdoors, feed your brain with nutritious content, and help others.
That’s one antidote to being unproductive
