Day 59 of theÂ 90 Days of AwesomeÂ is in the bank! What made today awesome? I took a quasi-mental health day.
I won’t deny that I’ve needed a break. I’ve been cranking hard on client work this summer. When I was a solo lawyer, my days were my own. I only went to my office when I had clients and otherwise I worked from home and my schedule was entirely my own. I had a day like that today.
I got up at my usual hour but instead of heading to the office, I headed out for a run. It felt so good to pound pavement in the middle of the week. After I finished breakfast and cleared email, I ran errands in the middle of the morning. The file server at work was fixed so I worked from the home office for most of the afternoon. It felt so good to break up the monotony of my every day routine. I need to remember to do that more often.
Having structure in my day creates security but it can also create a rut. I need to keep my energy moving by mixing things up periodically.
In case you missed it: Day 58 of the 90 Days of Awesome â€“ My work played hooky on me.
