With the whole reboot coming on January 1, I’ve been really enjoying… sleep. It’s kind of a question of “am I building bad habits or storing up sleep energy”? I choose to believe “storing up sleep energy.”
Truth be told, I’m kind of enjoying the down time between Christmas and New Year’s now that I’m committed to just being lazy for a bit. I’m rarely lazy. Then the obvious mental rejoinder is … or are you always kinda lazy?
No matter how hard I work, I’ll never quite feel like I’m working hard enough. And when I relax, I fret about whether I’m relaxing “right”. This is why I’m starting to see the value of those kinds of vacations I used to think were dumb. Cruises. Beach vacations. Things where you’re literally forced to do nothing. Doing nothing because you don’t have a choice might be a winning solution for me. It gives you permission to do nothing!
A couple more days of leaning into laziness. I’ve done well with a year of sobriety, and this is the reward: a few days of nothin’. The work starts again on January 1, yeah?
