Ijo Pona is the Harrogate adventure blog written by a Funny Little Man. Andy is a freelance web designer in Harrogate and he is also a well-received sound artist and runs a mastering studio in Yorkshire. The Wire Magazine once described him as "... difficult to dislike." Still at my most enthusiastic and naive.

In my last post I went on (a bit) about a need for a set of Daily Practice to centre myself and to ground myself. Here is another I hope to incorporate in to my year, for 2021.

I will give time to myself by reading for an hour when I wake up and not rush in to the day. This will hopefully cause a paradigm shift from what is in place now.
At the minute, my alarm goes off and I rush through to my office to switch on my computer and I sit there, in my pyjamas answering emails before I have brushed my teeth. This causes a panicked mindset from the start of the day to the end, most people would constantly be in a flap
I figure, if I take time out of my day to ‘reach’ work, like on a commute, it could turn me in to a better worker.
Working from home has provided everyone I know with challenges, but it also a site more liberating than the 9 to 5 grind. Work from home, don’t live in your office. Switch off.
