Be mindful

Scattered Clouds, 22°C

April Fools, but nobody has the energy for it today. Two days of solid work. Solving problems. Writing code. It’s been intense and exhausting.

Tonight I had a longer shower than normal, a couple of minutes extra, and just did mindfulness exercises to recover from the day. I imagined that I was at an onsen in Japan.

It worked.

Earlier in the day I visited the supermarket and spent a couple of hundred dollars on a week’s groceries. Hopefully they last the week, but it indicates how much more expensive fresh food has become.

It would be nice if work slowed down a little for the rest of the week, just to allow for some mental recovery time.
