There's always something to do, and I do feel like I've been far busier than usual. I've been stripping wallpaper and prepping a couple of rooms for plastering and painting. Obviously home renovations and DIY take up some free time, but it's not really eating into my evenings much. I feel like I'm on top of my job, ahead in some projects, and yet work has felt much more hectic than normal. Everything just feels busy and tiring. I had Covid a month or so ago, perhaps the tiredness is a hangover from that.
Maybe it's the world. Maybe the craziness of the past couple of years, coupled with everything that's adding to it at the moment is just wearing and draining. Maybe we're being overloaded with negativity and bad news.
What we need are more things that make us happy. Things that bring us joy. For me, it's reading, listening to music and playing with my dog.
Everyone should spend ten minutes everyday lying on the grass and just cuddle a puppy. Works wonders for me!
