The Paradox of the Free Time

With the self-quarantine in place and a lot of us having to stay at home, you’d think that you’d have a lot of free time to be more productive, right?

Unfortunately, that isn’t the case for me.

Sure, I had more time on my hands, but I ended up using those time to sleep in, watch movies or TVseries… basically not a lot of the “productive output” I was expecting.

You shouldn’t kick yourself up for being unproductive as what you would expect, though. It can be difficult to be creative in a constraining environment. For some, simply keeping their sanity is the best productive thing they could achieve.

True, I have been sleeping more, which means I have been getting more rest. I am watching things, therefore exposing myself to more media that may hopefully give me other creative ideas. I also got to get some chores done. Things are not completely a big waste. It all depends on the perspective.

I hope you are managing to keep your sanity intact in these trying times.

Stay safe, and have a nice day!
