Give space to your mind; or breaks

When I’m learning well, I’m connecting ideas, I’ve new ones, I feel like I’m blowing my mind (which doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m having great ideas, but that I’m excited by the originality of them).
I’m currently going through a bit of that phase. What has changed in the past few days was that I fell sick, and was just confined to bed with no podcasts and no shows and no readings. This not only brought a lot of zeal and fire back, I enjoy and retain and recall material better.
Being in nature via a weekend getaway or simple Cubbon park visit to read a book is a decent delta too.
