Distraction. I turned off all the notifications on my phone except texts, it feels like I have less pressure to poke at my phone at all times.
Also thinking a lot about how you lead a team across multiple cities, especially ones you can't just drive to. How do you maintain a relationship with people over WebEx sessions, phone calls, Slack and email?
Stimuli and input
Listened to the Audible version of Seneca's Letters from a Stoic and I'm going to be reading it with a colleague at work. Finished Thanks for the Feedback and it was good. Annoyingly, "why didn't I think of that" good.
Craft and unnecessary creating
I want to finish spinning some sea green Polwarth silk fibre into yarn and spin something else. I'm knitting asymmetric triangle/curve scarves and liking the look of the finished piece but still unsure how to wear them without looking awkward.
Drawing and doodling has fallen to the wayside, I want to figure out how to bring that back. I have some visual learners at work who need to see a picture or a diagram before something will click.
Exercise and health
As an experiment, I signed up with YogaGlo so I would have some exercise to do while on a business trip, and I'm keeping the subscription. A half-hour of yoga first thing in the morning seems like a good habit to have in my life.
Bonus side effect of the yoga: I can do five proper push-ups in a row to my karate instructor's satisfaction.
