And then, I flipped through my book shelf. The novel and fiction part of my shelf! I found several books I bought and I wanted to read. I kept pondering (is this the right word?) and finally came up with the final solution for all my problems. Well, not all my bad problems, but some of them. The work-life balance one.
I need a schedule!
I need working time (including writing time, sketching time, surfing the web for new papers time, reading time, etc.), I need a special reading time (like reading novels) and I need a special reading place. I've got a huge sofa which was purchased exactly for this purpose, but I'd prefer an outdoor place, at least for the warmer months. I have to figure out exactly where I'll go to. It should be a meadow b/c I should by lying (the spine...). And I need a dedicated cleaning time every week. And I should schedule one social activity every week, like having coffee or diner with a friend (not one like going to the theate alone).
Yeah, I really think this is the key idea. I should schedule myself free time. I really should.
Guess I'll be working on that schedule over the next weeks.
