I'm always a bit restless on the days between Christmas and New Year. It seems that relaxing is compulsory but I'm not very good it at.
A lot of my work is done online so a good deal of my time is spent at my laptop but I always feel like relaxing on the sofa watching a film is passive but doing things online is kind of connected and interactive? I have such conflicting emotions about the amount of time I'm glued to my laptop and I know I need to find a balance, I guess not having a TV cuts out the amount of time I would be watching 'whatever' is on and spending that time online is no worse..
I really struggled with the feeling of not acheiving anything with my day when I was a new mum. Days whisked by that felt like 'all' I had done was breastfeed and stare adoringly at my baby and the house was a mess and emails had been left and my blog was suffering and I wasn't drawing or creating.. I read the book 'what mothers do' that really helped with put things in a different perspective so maybe I should read it again to learn how to relax and do 'nothing' somedays too.
Or maybe I'm just always going to be one of those people! Am I alone?
