Day 4: Dreary

This post brought to you by a glimpse of sunshine after a dreary day, and 1.5 hours on the phone with IT.

Hello lovely people of the interweb, and welcome to day 4 of #100DaysofHannah!
Oh, what to talk about...

The first half of today was long - exceptionally long.
As I’ve already mentioned, I’m a morning person.  Good or bad, I try to hold to that even when I desperately need sleep... like I did this morning when my 5th day of 6 or less hours of sleep hit me like a ton of bricks.
Which meant that despite a glorious run and a large mug of coffee, by the time rounds concluded at 9a, I was dead.  After attempting to push through for another 45 minutes, I finally threw in the towel and laid down to rest.

Quarantine Life Lesson: 30 minute power naps, or even power rests, are the best.

While the nap did wonders for my motivation, the dreary day still left me feeling subpar.  (Okay, I really shouldn’t blame it on the day.  I’ve been feeling sick to my stomach for at least an hour a day for the past week.  No, I’m not pregnant.  Until otherwise determined, we’re just gonna say I’m tired.)

But two days of non-productivity are strictly prohibited in the world of working from home, so back to work I went.

The morning/afternoon continued to crawl by until about 3:00 when I placed a call to IT to try to get call forwarding set up between my work and cellphone to allow for ease of patient communication.  1.5 hours, a power outage, and 3 zoom calls later, my phone was (almost fixed) and the work day (minus an hour of FREE CE later this evening) was finished.

Thank God.

Question of the Day: Is it normal to feel sick when you’re tired?
Challenge of the Day: Get out of the house! Aim for at least 30 minutes outdoors doing some form of activity.
Picture of the day: Okay... So, this wasn’t actually from today.  It was from a year ago today, which happened to be my last day living in one of my favorite places in the world.

Now to go enjoy some of that sunshine before that next hour of productivity.

‘Til tomorrow: May your naps be restful, your days sunny, and your IT guy brilliant.

-Hannah
