Healthy life.

It is quite healthy for physicsts to have discussions and calculations everyday. I guess all theoretical physicists suffer from an “adictive custom” — that is to do calculations at a desk and to discuss physics with friends everywhere. I am also that kind of person, of course, though these years I guess I am not so addictive compared to my days in graduate school. I think I now know how to manage my potential “will” (to continue physics all day long forever) somehow, and cut my day into two parts; “on” and “off” physics. However, as a matter of fact, when I am deeply involved with a certain problem which I am really fascinated, I cannot manage myself and my daily life gradually gets broken. I miss time for sleeping, etc. I think I am getting better for managing myself — if I observe myself (which is the scientific standpoint for anything), these days I wake up at around 6:30 AM everyday, which is a clear indication that I am managing myself well. But the time to go to bed varies significantly. Yesterday I went to bed at 9:00 PM, that was fairly early, and on the day before yesterday it was at 12:00 PM, and on the day before that, it was 1:30 AM. So it differs. But the time to wake up is the same. Probably I have to say that I half-succeed in managing myself.

These days, thanks to my collaborators, I am going through very healthy days. Almost for all day long, I have discussions and calculations, with collaborators here at RIKEN and also overseas. It is quite a fun. Hopefully we can publish a nice physics in the very near future.
