Self-driven, independent work is so so sooo hard on some days. My brain comes up with a million reasons why 8 am is not the appropriate time to get working. Oftentimes, I spend an awful amount of time organizing and reorganizing my work area in order to keep from starting something, though my work space is still a giant mess.
So when I realized that I was spiraling down into the cycle of doom today (not wanting to work, organizing, complaining, snacking for no reason), I instead went to the local nature center to work and loved it. I will be returning tomorrow to get some more research done!
