July Pomodoro Data
Having reflections allow me to measure how much I’ve done and what I’ve accomplished to achieve my goals. It helps me stay accountable in my journey as a lifelong learner and studying the material I am interested in which will help me become a better developer and also keeping my skills current and up to date.
Yup, I completely tanked this month in terms of productivity. This month has been a stressful one.
Earlier in July, I was anxiously waiting at the hospital for my last surgery and unfortunately, I was told that it had to be rescheduled to a later date in 3 weeks time.
On the same day of my cancellation, I had to return back to the ER to deal with a second episode of Bell’s palsy and given a neurologist follow up. This made me mentally exhausted and anxious the entire month making it difficult to focus after work.
Today has been a few days since my surgery and it went well. I’m hoping this is the last surgery I will ever have to deal with as I feel completely spent.
I am focused 100% on my recovery. The medication has been making me very tired and unable to focus for long. I will be expecting a very low productivity count for August as I am anticipating my return from work in 2 weeks.
I know very well how my productivity will turn out in the upcoming months if I am not mindful of the self-imposed workload during and after my recovery.
- Dedicated meditation cushion - I was having a hard time adjusting my posture when I sat down to meditate. However, with a dedicated cushion, I am able to enjoy meditation without having to worry about pain from bad posture.
- Buckwheat pillow - I decided to purchase a buckwheat filled pillow to improve my sleep. They are pillows that are filled with the buckwheat hulls which allow for a very comfortable and conforming pillow. I found that I like this much better than my shredded foam pillow as it provides more support and sleeps much cooler.
So far I am pretty happy with the improvements as it helps with my sleep. Now I shall go back to my resting which includes frequent naps…
