Today was a day mostly full of house work and lawn work for me. I’m glad I managed to get that done today, as it’s supposed to rain every day for the next 9 days according to the forecast.
I was also very low on energy, so after doing my weekly review this morning I decided to take a nap — this is the only day of the week where I get that opportunity, so I seize it.
By the end of the day, I was still dead tired, so I stuck to my minimum and did a long sketch of a hand for about 15 minutes. Hands are something that always challenge me, so I figured I’d see if I could make any progress on a difficult subject while I was tired. All-in-all, I’m not dissatisfied with the outcome:
What was awesome?
Catching up on a few of the things around the house.
Not breaking the chain.
Challenging myself when I’m really, really tired.
What needs work?
My energy levels. They’re a bit shot.
What did I learn?
I feel better about myself when I tackle something outside of my comfort zone — especially when I know that I’m pushing myself while exhausted. It feels like I’m building up more resilience that way. Not sure why.
