Always doing something and yet feel like I have done nothing. I’m the Queen of Multi-tasking™, with one hand typing on the keyboard and the other reaching for my phone. A podcast on in the background while I wash my makeup brushes and a video playing as I scroll through tumblr. Making the most of my time since I can remember, although I will admit that the amount of multi-tasking I do has definitely increased in recent years.
As much as I try to kill two birds with one laptop — err, stone — there is always a point where productivity stops. It’s like my brain has reached its maximum capacity for the day and won’t let any other bits of information inside. On the other hand, there are days when my brain is absolutely insatiable for something, anything to keep it occupied. Those days are simultaneously great and terrible for the sole reason that I exhaust my usual media outlets and struggle to satisfy my curiosity.
Today has been one of those multi-tasking days that is teetering on the edge of becoming exhausting, but I’m feeling positive that I’ll be all right. One of these days I’ll find that work/life balance I always hear people rave about. Until then I think I’ll sit back and enjoy the ride for what it is.
I managed to wake up at 7am, just as planned, and my sleep app reported a 91% efficient night of sleep. I’ve been using this app called Sleeptime for the last four years and it’s honestly one of the most helpful things I’ve ever done for myself. Basically it just tracks your sleep cycles and helps you figure out if you’re getting a good night’s rest. It’s sort of life-changing.
Anyway, I also went to the gym today and totally killed my workout! I used the elliptical and even though I felt so wrecked afterward, I did notice that my endurance has improved a bit. Let’s see how long I can keep up the charade, eh?
