I thought I would pop by and just have a bit of a ramble…
I seem to be failing a little at my photo a day project this month – I am not sure why, but I am not going to beat myself up about it too much. I am just going to go with it, but the updates will probably stop – 1: am sure they weren’t the most inspiring posts and 2: what’s the point of them if I have missed some days!?
I have just been feeling a little distracted I suppose, we have been setting up our Etsy shop and trying to get some things at the actual shop sorted and I guess my focus has been a little all over the place.
I have been trying to sort out this focus issue, but I am really not sure how to go about it – my mind seems to fragmented that I don’t really know where to start. I have been trying to switch off from devices at a sensible time and try and wind down so I get some proper sleep which I think must be a good place to start. I am always tempted to do another media detox like last year, but it seems like there are so many things that I need to do online for the shop that it never seems to work.
Does anyone else work for themselves and find it so so hard to find a good work/life balance? It’s like you never switch off completely. I am not even sure if I am moaning about that, because I am obviously going to do anything I can to get the business flying.
Anyway, I am reading quite a bit when the shop is quieter as it is still cold and grey here and the season hasn’t really started yet. The distractions creep into this hobby too though – sometimes I can read pages and pages without actually having taken notice of any of the words. Does anyone else do this? I still turn the pages and move my eyes, but no words sink in. Weird.
What has everyone else been up to lately – I feel like I am completely out of the loop here!
Any tips for regaining focus?
