It's probably to early to be posting this sort of content, but I'm going to do it anyway.
I have been doing a lot of thinking about how to become/sustain being mentally healthy. I've thought about my work habits and my general life stuff/direction. Once of the many realisations I've come to is that I spend too much time 1) working or 2) feeling guilty about not working.
The ultimate lifestyle I'm aiming for is a creative one where I set my own artistic/musical projects (and manage to make ends meet). This involves a lot of self directed creation and admin. Having much of my work dictated by self direction often leads me into the "I should be working now/I haven't done enough work today" Rabbit hole.
The basic gist is this whole beating myself up about not doing enough work is 1) unsustainable 2) unhealthy in the long term.
Now, I'm not normally one for New Years resolutions. (I'll make my personal changes when and where I want to (and I suppose this may not be technically a New years resolution as I've been implementing it for the post few days.) But I have one this year.
In the year that is 2018, and for all the years to follow, I resolve to not beat myself up for "not doing enough work".
I've told the internet now. I have to do it ;p
On a semi related note here's my latest video. (Youtube is involved in the "work" that I have to do. although, this is fun work)
