Do you know what I realized this weekend? I really need to have an "off" switch when it comes to blogging.
Blogging is an interesting job because I don’t have an office. I don’t have designated hours. And since I have a 9-5, I spend my lunch breaks, metro rides, nights and evenings working on all things blogging. No wonder why I periodically started getting burned out!
I went down to Austin this past weekend, and I spent my entire Friday furiously trying to answer blog emails. Not going to lie, I felt a little depressed after the election, and the day afterwards was probably my least productive day I’ve had in a long time. I was playing catch up, even though I was technically on a vacation.
There came a moment when I knew I just needed to shut down my laptop and not check my blog email for a day or so. I needed to relax. Chill. Actually not work 24/7, which is a very novel concept. This is why I’m starting to implement "blog office hours," for my sanity. I’m going to take one whole day a week to power off and do my own thing. I also am giving myself a few hours a day when I completely decompress: no blog events, no day job, no blogging, a few hours just to myself. Whether I use that time to go to the gym, or watch TV, it’s just a few hours of "me" time!
Cheers to a little more balance, right?
