Since I work from home with my part-time job and with my photography business I am finding that I absolutely have to structure my days with regular business hours to be fully productive. I was trying to speed through everything without actually writing in “take lunch break” “take 10 minute break” and I discovered I was becoming less productive…tired…and very hungry for lunch at 3pm.
I just started to schedule in breaks this week and this schedule will be here to stay. I went for a walk on my 10 minute break this week to a park down the street that I haven’t been to in the eight months since we’ve moved to our new apartment. It was peaceful and I was able to test out photography exposures, rest, and instead of looking out the window breathing in the hot oxygen from my space heater , I took in the fresh crisp, winter Monterey air.
