Do you know what's nice? Taking a day off on purpose. I did that today: I've spent the whole afternoon watching Man from U.N.C.L.E. episodes* and drinking tea. And it wasn't an "I wasted the whole day procrastinating because I was stressed out about important work and avoiding it" kind of break. It was an "I've gotten lots of work done and deserve an afternoon off for play" kind of break.
I also took an afternoon on Friday and had a Downtown Adventure with Ky. It was wonderful allowing myself to take a break without guilt. (It helped that I'd made a bunch of progress and felt like I was allowed to take a break.) I felt light; I chatted excitedly with shopkeepers and art gallery curators.
I need to remember to do this more often: work when I work and play when I play. Not live in the fuzzy, guilty in-between. (And I know I've said this a million times before.)
* I got it for Very Early Birthday-Christmas from Chris, my sister, my brother, and my sister-in-law-to-be!
