How do I recharge? Well, it usually involves sleep or at the very least a mindless evening where my toughest decision is what kind of food I want to have delivered in as we veg around the house.
I lead a pretty hectic life. Between the day job, writing, promoting and playing hard on the weekends with our various family activities and adventures, I don’t get a lot of sleep. There just aren’t enough hours in the day and something’s gotta give right?
Usually about every four to five weeks my body rebels against the abuse and forces me to give it a little downtime. During these periods (which last about a day or two) I usually sleep for eleven to twelve hours where I feel lucky to get five to six hours the rest of the time.
I keep thinking that as I grow older I won’t be able to maintain such a schedule, but so far it has worked for me for the better part of twenty years and shows no signs of slowing. I’m sure I’ll eventually get to a point where all the extracurricular activity holds less appeal, until then I say life is short. Squeeze the most out of every day that you possibly can.
