From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
I’ve been working at home for some weeks now, and if there’s one flaw I’ve noticed it’s that lunch breaks can get easily crunched into nothing.
When I was at the office I didn’t mind buying lunch most days since doing so gave me the chance to establish some physical distance from the office. When my home became ‘the office’ getting that distance became more difficult.
This week I hit upon the concept of a ‘creative break’ of not just having lunch but properly downing tools and doing something creative.
One Monday and Tuesday, I painted miniatures. On Wednesday I created new banners for articles in my Explore MtG art series. Thursday was a dumpster fire of a 15 minutes lunch taken while starting at spreadsheets.
Today, we’ll see. I should start in a few minutes.
The creative break remains a work in progress but on Monday and Tuesday especially I felt refreshed not just after lunch but also more so at the end of the work day. On Thursday that feeling was definitely missing.
Today I will hopefully be taking my creative break within a few minutes of this post. We’ll see.
Either way I’m hoping to make the creative break a regular part of my day while working at home.
Also, it was really hard to find a stock image of a cup of tea featuring a man. I had to settle on the above image of ‘possibly tea, but probably coffee’.
