Recovery Process for Freelancers

Recover from illness? From stress? From general slumps?

Apparently, I sleep.

Two weeks ago, I got sick. It started with a cough…that turned into a fever…that turned into me dumping half my brains into three boxes of kleenex and hacking up what I can only assume were chunks of my lungs.

During that time, I’ve slept more than I’ve probably slept in a month. I was useless. I couldn’t work, I couldn’t clean (not that I’d want to clean, anyway)…I couldn’t even make my own soup, for crying out loud! But rest is what I needed, because I feel much better now.

Of course now that I’m feeling better, I’ve another problem…not knowing where to begin to start catching up. I have a lot of catching up to do, and I don’t know where to plant my feet to get started. And because of that, all I want to do now is go back to sleep.

But I know I can’t.

So what do you do? How do you recover from your slumps?
