Good (≠ Productive) Things

Great things I did today:

  • Woke up early (which is extra great because I’m slowly trying to shift from a 3 AM-11 AM schedule to a 10 PM-6 AM schedule. Today was 7:30! I’ve been hovering around 8 for the last week.)
  • Morning yoga
  • Caught the early bus to my class today (Usually because I’m Always Running Late I take the bus that drops me off just barely in time for class.)
  • The first problem set assignment for my logic class was returned and I got 10/10! 🙂
  • Felt completely comfortable giving a presentation and leading discussion in my seminar
  • Went to the gym (I feel like this is extra commendable because I walked there in the freezing, pouring rain.)
  • Didn’t forget to bring my reusable bags when I went grocery shopping

Tonight I plan to take a night off from philosophy and coursework and just do some housekeeping and relax 🙂

Today was a good day, and I’m extra happy about that because it wasn’t a good day in virtue of me being productive work-wise. I think it’s good for my mental health to separate “good” from “productive” – and honestly for the longest time those words were conceptually identical for me. It’s nice to know I’m capable of wrapping my head around the idea of them being different, especially right in the middle of the work week.
