Lucid Dreaming: Flight to Space

I fell asleep in a peaceful state of relaxation. I welcomed the possibilities of the dreaming realm as I prepared to depart from the ground beneath our feet. I clicked pieces of my space armor into place one by one against my thermal suit. Each piece clicked into place to create an intricate envelopment around my body while still allowing for maximum mobility.
Ready to depart, I put the helmet over my head and sealed the airflow to the inside. The air was cool and crisp with a bit of a metallic taste against my toung as I inhaled. I began running across the sandy desert landscape to create lift against the wings of my suit as the high powered thrusters roared to life. A moment later and I shot up to the clear sunny sky.
Flying free I climbed higher into the atmosphere. Then, everything is weightless as I continue zooming forward into a sea of a billion stars shining against the darkness.
The stillness of the universe outside my suit is comforting.

Using Time Wisely During the COVID-19 Lockdown

Most of us are now working from home who are not at all used to such a phenomenon. Working from home for me, however, is nothing new. I've been taking college credits online for two years and doing odd jobs through my laptop for about a year now.

So, what are the best secrets for productivity?

In truth, I think the best secret is to take frequent breaks. Yeah, it sounds a bit counterproductive, I know, but hear me out here. I've found that home is full of a lot of distractions and they will continue to distract you if you don't take some time to address them. If I am to be entirely out there with you when you work from home, the laundry comes with you, the phone comes with you, and even the dishes come with you too.

The best way to make use of the time is to try to keep your routine as normal as possible when trying to work from home. Yes, the current situation is anything but normal, but believe me, you want at least a little sense of normal. Don't forget to enjoy some sunshine too! It's mood-boosting after all.
