Getting sick

I’ve been under the weather for two weeks now.

There’s something about getting sick (especially early in the year) that zaps your momentum. Habits fall apart. Free time is spent resting. Ideas are weak. Posts don’t get published. Time disappears.

One of my 2020 driving principles is to not waste time. This makes going to bed almost immediately, and sleeping in later than usual feel like a loss.

It’s hard to remember that health is paramount, and that my best work and play will come from being well-rested and fully-functional.

Hoping to bounce back.
