It’s Friday afternoon and I’ve been staring at my screen for the better part of the last hour, trying to get cracking on a report. I’m running on less than 3 hours sleep and I think I just need to accept I just don’t recover from sleep deprivation as well as I used to. My arms feel heavy, I’ve been dragging my feet, and my brain feels like it’s melting. Every time I try to process new information all my brain spits back is this image:

What do you do when your brain gets melty? I’ve tried a few things so far (got up, had a stretch, drank 750ml water, went for a walk, had some lunch…) but I know deep down inside, the best remedy to brain melt is good night’s sleep (and a glass of wine).
