My sleep schedule since I left FedEx has devolved into crazy cuckoo clock territory and I love it! I basically write for 2-4 hours after my husband goes to sleep and wake up with him in the morning to do the day’s activities. Then I nap for about an hour in the afternoon to catch up on the sleep I lost.
Everyone says that the best part about not being attached to a job you have to show up for is setting your own hours, but for some reason people think that those hours have to be sane. I am here to tell you that they don’t, unless you are the type of person who thrives on structure and sanity (like my husband).
Social isolation pulled away those few events that were keeping me in the same time zone as the rest of the world, allowing me to find what sings for me. Much to my surprise I have become far more productive as my mental clock and my body clock got into sync.
I hope social isolation is bringing something positive into your life to make up for some of the stress. Be well, friends!
