There is a quote that goes something like this: Working hard pays off in the future. Being lazy pays off now.
is so true. Sometimes, after exhausting myself for a week, there is
nothing I want except to collapse into the sofa and stay there - a couch
potato! I could be all sharp and alert attending hours of meetings but
once settle down in my sofa, I could fall into a coma right away for at
least 30 minutes with my full work suit on! I am afriad that if I clean
up or get changed, I would lose the drowsiness and become awake again.
I can stay awake until I finish dinner. But it would be absolutely
disasterous if I sit down. I would be fast asleep for hours and wake up
at midnight not able to sleep again. So I have started a new plan - not
to sit down but remain standing, clean up and go downstairs to take a
walk. Unfortunately, the plan doesn't work every day.
