I love my work. A bit too much actually. The last 4 months have been really good. I have been more productive than last year and managed to learn things in these four months which would take me a year to go through before.
Having been heads down working meant that I was not prioritising my health and the urges to do things other than work. Been sick is a good reminder that your body needs rest. You cannot keep asking it to do more on a regular basis. It is also important to prioritise non work time as much as you focus on work time.
Having spent the weekend resting and recovering and still in the process of recovering, I am again reminded how I am in this for the long run and that I need to take care of my health and well being while continuing to do work that I enjoy.
