Self-Care Challenge (Day 217): Researching

Whether you read product reviews on Amazon before making a purchase, or scour Google Scholar for outcomes of scientific studies, you’re conducting research. Research is what we do when we explore, analyze, investigate, or search for information.

My self-care practice for the day was to conduct research for a project that I’ve been working on for the past several weeks. It’s reached a point where my unrestrained sense of excitement is causing me to enter a state of flow for hours at a time nearly every day.

So much so that I’m having arguments with myself over when to call it a night. I’m noticing that it’s become necessary to set limits on my work hours to ensure that I start the next day fully recharged and mentally sharp. 

How do you conduct research?
