I took a break this day from work, mainly because it was a public holiday the day before so why not make it a 4-day weekend?
I allowed myself to rest. No work, not even my side project. And rest I did.
All I did that day were:
- A yoga session
- Catching up with this season's new anime
- A call with one of my fellow ODNC alumni
- Out having good meals
It's always a good reminder to allow yourself to take at least a day off from the week just to rest. Do anything except for work, including your side projects.
The most important part is DON'T feel guilty about taking a break. I can't remember how many times I've felt that hint of guilt sitting in my gut when I'm not doing work. I hate it. I'm still in the process of unlearning and relearning that resting without guilt is needed. Otherwise, even if you're resting, that hint of guilt will continue to eat at you.
