While the world turns upside down, I tryna maintain my life as normal as I could.
I’ve been working from home for more than 2 weeks. Fortunately we still have works even though it’s obviously much less than usual.
In the first week, I somewhat successfully maintained the same schedule as before the mandatory social distancing. I woke up at around 8, did yoga for 40 minutes, had breakfast and headed to my piano which since then became my work station and worked on my laptop. I’d work ’til 7 and had dinner alone since my parents and my brother ate at around 6. Then I’d go back to my room, take a shower, take care of my skin and go to bed and read a little before chatting with my boyfriend and eventually fall asleep at 11.
The second week, last week, was not going as I’d wished. I stayed up late so I woke up late and was not focus hence I had to work late and the cycle repeated the next morning.
Anyway, I’ve decided that this week I’ll be more discipline. Today went quite well. I woke up at 9 and worked right away to check my boxes of pending tasks. In the afternoon, I was quite distracted so I meditated for 5 mins and did some more work before I called it a day at 6:45.
There was a checkbox for writing something hence there’s this post.
I set up an alarm for 10 PM every day from today, by that time I’d go to bed, read for 30′ and call my boyfriend. But today, I’d spend that 30 minute reading for learning a new piece of music that I’ve listening to several days on end: “Sau này hãy gặp lại nhau khi hoa nở” by Nguyên Hà.
Oh, and I won’t set up my wake up alarm anymore, which is what I’ve always wanted to do regularly before but am afraid I may be late for work. I feel more awake and energetic when I let my body rises naturally. Somehow my body knows that it has to wake up itself without an alarm, it always chooses a good time to wake when it has enough rest.
Okay, a silly photo of me to end this post:
