Sometimes you have to listen to your body. After working all weekend producing a thousand-page transcript - a weekend that was a 3-day holiday for most people - I was tired and cranky.
I felt liberated, though, having made that delivery and sending the pages out of my realm.
So after court on Tuesday, I stopped. Did nothing. Well, not NOTHING. I took myself out to dinner and had a beer. Tasted good. Flirted with my favorite waiter (hey, a girl can have fun). Even had dessert (warm peanut butter cookie). Came home and reclined for several hours with a good book and two cats. Went to bed early. Woke refreshed.
Your body tells you when it needs a break. It's important to listen.
Remember to listen.
