>Help me. Give me advice. Tonight I finished my teaching day (and week) at 5:30 and then headed off to the rec center for a run. During said run, all I could think about was the week of teaching behind me and the week of teaching ahead of me, even though tomorrow is my day o’ research and I have a work hardly-in-progress due to folks in a reading group in a month.
How do I make myself stop thinking about teaching and start thinking about research? They’re both making me equally anxious right now (yeah, two of my classes aren’t going so well — or at least are frustrating *me* — and I’m kind of stuck on the research project) so you’d think I’d be equally obsessive about them. But I can’t seem to switch my focus to the research project.
How do I do that? Or rather, how do *you* do that? All advice welcome and appreciated, please!
(And by the way, I hope to do a related, and perhaps more developed post in response to the thoughtful post Dr. Crazy did on setting aside time for research and writing. But right now it’s not the time that’s a problem for me — or maybe, really, it is — but the focus.)
