The pitfall is that, sometimes my brain gets so tired from a full day of working with words, that it isn't as sharp after 6pm.
My solution? Doing something manual to help my brain reboot.
To rest the intellectual-wordy part of my brain, I made pizza. From scratch. I kneaded the dough and let it rise twice. I made tomato AND pesto sauce from fresh ingredients. And then while my pizza bubbled in the oven, I washed all the dishes.
I returned to my keyboard a few minutes ago feeling clear-headed and fresh - ready to tackle the short translation and revision that awaits.
Heck, I even squeezed out a blog post. With photo!
