health - depression and anxiety are generally not helped by lurching along from crisis state to crisis state.
So, here, for your benefit - although I'm sure you're more clued up than I am - are my liberating realisations:
- I've been consistently busy, although with different and varied projects, for a long time now: I should see busy as normal
- If busy is going to be my normal state, I need to see this as my actual life, not preparation (sorry for the dramatic, but I bet some of you know what I mean!)
- Staring at a screen for ten hours is far less productive than doing, say, six or seven hours of screen time spread across the day
- Not only can I therefore 'afford' the time to go on the dog walk with my husband, but I positively benefit from doing so (duh!)
