Today was an awesomely productive day!
Do you ever have those days where everything just clicks — you work so quickly that you feel like your fingers are on fire? Today was one of those days for me. Even with the long break I took to treat my dad to a late Father's Day brunch, and even with a walk up to the post office to mail my quarterly estimated tax payment, I still got a ton of stuff done.
It probably sounds a little corny, but I knew when I got up this morning that something was different. Michael woke me up around 7:20 to walk the dogs with him — a habit from last summer that we're trying to get back into. Rather than feeling exceptionally tired, I actually felt well-rested and energetic. After we got back from our walk, I pounded out several client blog posts before going out to brunch with my dad.
When we got back from brunch, I felt a little tired, but resisting the urge to take a nap I took a hot bath instead. Rather than making me feel more sleepy, it revived me, and I went back to work for the rest of the afternoon, taking a break only to walk up to the post office and back (an errand that only took 30 minutes).
It was a day when everything went right — and technically I'm not done yet, since I plan to work on a few more projects this evening. This sudden productivity is a huge change for me, as for the last few months I've really been dragging. But this week, for the first time in ages, I'm starting off the week ahead instead of behind!
