When you go on holiday, normally you have a set time, like seven days. If
you are able to take more time, however, you open yourself to problems caused by idling. I mean, who does not want extra time? Many of us spent our whole lives wishing we could take more time off, and then came a pandemic.
In the three months I have been stuck at home, I have learned a lot about problems caused by idling.
- changed my hair colour and when it was done, hated it.
- braided my hair; found the weight was too much; took down four hours of muscle-building work;
- watched television for two days; now I fall asleep each time a movie starts.
- Cooked new things but ended up eating them by myself because my roommates are food cowards
- Opening social media now means mothering myself by setting a 30 minute time limit.
Exciting news! Dreadlocks, A Hairstylist’s Manifest is now in paperback on amazon.com. I would appreciate your support. Thank you.
The problems caused by idling are not always bad though. Now I am able to identify when I am over budget on the idling part. This break has given me time to learn a computer program and finish my books in paperback: “Dreadlocks, A Hairstylist’s Manifest” is out. “Talking Hair” should be out shortly. You too can overcome the problems caused by idling, if you manage your time effectively.
