Oxygen for thought

“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

Days are long at work recently. There’s plenty to do. Lots of papers to shuffle and calls to be made and spreadsheets to be updated. But, I’m feeling tired, and sleeeeepy. Oh how I long for a siesta. Right around 2pm, and its prime nappy-poo time for yours truly.

There’s no way we’re meant to sit behind a desk for 8 hours. Seems like a slow form of torture to me. I’m productive in spurts. In the morning and the afternoon. The whole idea behind an hour lunch seems trite. Cliche. Go out and eat and then back to your desk for more work. No thanks. Like a slowly tightening vice around the oxygen supply to spontaneity, creativity and productivity. Lately, the vice is feeling pretty damn tight. Suffocating.

Maybe the next time my eye lids start to droop while staring blankly into the void of the computer screen, I should practice getting upside down, vertically, in my cube. That would get the blood moving, and certainly puncture the mundane-ity. Practicing head stands is super fun. And I’m getting better. Eventually I could just kick up right there against the grey fabric wall of the cube. Oxygen for thought.
