I should remember that I have many ways to manage #stress
. When one fails just try something else.
Work is busy and I'm playing catch up with myself. Playing catch up can be overwhelming, especially when things go wrong (hello, scientific research you fickle sod). I don't want to hit burnout. I still need to learn to manage peaks and troughs in productivity better because all or nothing isn't a viable strategy for lab work.
I used to #knit
on the train and my commute included a walking which together usually meant I started my day pretty well collected. Recent changes meant I still had a walk, but I lost all my #knitting
time and I was starting work flustered. I could have rushed in this morning, but a little #coffee
and knitting break @takkmcr
felt like a good idea.
I'll find out later whether this was the right call, but for now here's a post with a shift in focus; knitting or coffee and beer?
Still working on the frankly amazing #bambarawrap
pattern from #ambahobrien
. All yarns are Lady P from #countessablaze
