2024-01-07: Is this my new baseline?

This week, my HRV1 was over 30ms 5 out of 7 days, and actually broke 40ms on three of those days.

I haven't seen 40ms since the beginning of December, and I haven't averaged this high since the beginning of September.

More importantly, I feel balanced and well. I just hope I can maintain this.

What went well?

What am I thinking about?

Lots of thoughts about Autistic burnout. How I used to spend so much time and energy trying to figure out why I was so chronically exhausted and tired, and all of the random reasons I suspected. When really, I just needed rest and to be alone and away from sensory things.

What's up for next week?

My wife's been away visiting family for the last couple of weeks, and next week she's back! I'm mostly planning to take it easy, hang with my wife, and spend some time working on my remix.
