    I have been sooooo non-productive. What started out as being a long-weekend break at the start of lockdown, has been 10 days of doing not-very-much. I’ve loved every minute of it. For the first time in 20 years, I have been able to ignore my computer and to not do any work without hundreds of emails piling up that demand attention and action. With the whole world (pretty much) shutdown, I’ve had a real break.

    I’ve got things to do that need to be done in this time – things I’ve been wanting to get to for 18 months but I haven’t had capacity to get the chunks of hours needed. I have decided that I’m going to do 1/2 to 3/4 work days for the rest of lockdown – the best of both worlds.

    In any fitness programme, rest is also part of training. These 10 days of rest have been precious.

      That’s great that you’ve been able to tackle those things that get neglected during this time and also just honor what you need right now and choose rest and make the most of this time!
