quotables | no. 2

This philosophy has definitely come to the forefront in the last 6+ months. I work hard and I work a lot, but I also carve out a lot more time to unplug than I used to. Rather than sitting in front of the tv at night with my MacBook Pro on my lap (but not really being productive), my computer now pretty much stays in my office while I spend most evenings and weekends relaxing, connecting with Nick and/or our friends, and living. It’s no wonder that I feel much more creative, productive, inspired and fulfilled (and a lot less exhausted) these days.

  1. When I lost my job before we moved, I started putting my laptop on our desk instead of leaving it on the couch. It was a huge change for me in how my evenings would work. I no longer had a laptop on my lap when Mike and I would talk. It definitely let my evenings feel more fulfilled, so I definitely know where you’re coming from. Glad that you’ve found something that works for you & makes you happier!

  2. That is so important, and that quote is spot on. Glad you are taking more time to unplug! :)

  3. Good for you! My laptop has been splitting its time between the office and couch and I need to just leave it in the office. I think I’ll be much more productive that way too
