Last week especially, and a bit into this week… I’ve had a really hard time finding a good work/life balance. I’ve been working late hours, well in the evenings. And this, sometimes, after waking up to get an early start to the day.
I’m not sure what it is, exactly. Things are busy, but not necessarily busier than normal. I feel like being at home all the time, always within reach of the keyboard… makes work that much more there all the time.
Liz has also had the same struggles, and I’m finding it hard to define (and adhere to) a clear start/stop to the day. The work is… always there, and it’s difficult sometimes to set it aside, and say to myself: “enough.”
It’s been interesting to see this issue rise up, now of all times. Several weeks into self-isolating, it’s just now that the whole work/life balance thing started to get really messy. I wonder if this is just me, or if others are finding it suddenly harder to feel out those boundaries.
