0181D: Mental Recovery Activities

This weekend is thankfully another gaming weekend, and I'm all the better for it. Crazy schedules on and off over the past few weeks and different players being out of the country or whatnot are somewhat past us now and we're getting back into the regular swing of things. And that's more important for our RPG sessions more than our gameboard nights since those are pretty flexible. And I know that Tobie has been eager to get back into regular RPG schedules again.

Beyond our gaming, it feels like there are a gazillion things that I still want to do. I'm somewhat behind on all of my fiction reading - something that the Geeky Guide is feeling the pinch of to some extent in terms of having continuous content. I've barely touched most of the Transformers that I've purchased this year, plus a lot of them are Kre-Os, which are a little trickier to store and display. So I really need to figure out how I'm going to display them so I can get around to opening those boxes, taking my usual photos and all that fun stuff. And Tobie has reminded me that I need to schedule some time to actually clean all the other guys that are still on display. Not quite as fun, but definitely important.

And don't even get me started on my fiction writing - that's pretty much at a standstill.

Work has just been so draining these days, I find myself unable to really dive into things as much as I'd like to. When I get home I just feel so tired that I can be sitting in front of my computer but nothing productive happens. I have blogging that I need to get done and other writing that I hope to do but none of that can progress when my mind feels like a blank when I'm just staring at the screen like that. And it frustrates me how the work day can leave me feeling like that - there has to be something that I can work into my routine to help me recover a bit more before I dive back into things.

I've been toying with trying out meditation of even yoga to address things like that. I've never really been good with things of this nature and most meditation ends up with me feeling all sleepy or something. But then I recognize there are certain cognitive benefits to this sort of thing - especially given my fatigued mental state at the end of my work day. Any tips from social media contacts and the internet at large would be appreciated at this point.
