Yesterday, I posted about how a character in my favorite Steinbeck novel discovers the secret pleasure of slowing down.
“Researchers have discovered that in pre-industrial times, people slept in two shifts, waking in the middle of the night for some solitude, conversations with another person, wondering, or wandering. Then they’d go back to sleep for another stretch. I have been doing this lately, and have been able to get 2-3 hours of uninterrupted creative work done in the middle of the night.”
I’ve had a similar experience with naps.
What do you do to make more time for yourself, or at least to feel less rushed?
