I have a suspicion but not sure if this is true
Work forces me up in the morning and out of the house. It forces me to focus and complete work and socially interact with others.
I like the health it brings. When I come home from work, I slowly go from going about a routine of activities and chores to amorphousness and searching for short term things that just ocurr to me.
Eventually though the free time "I think" invites some negative feelings - like I start to get suspicious, I over eat,
and basically start to get all abstract and depersonalized (if that makes sense.) I know I need to manage this stuff -
and be responsible for it - but I have such a hard time keeping busy all the time, I need to rest as well. Maybe it's the way I look at it all that I can adjust.
