In theory I think it's nice not to be busy, but I find my mood is best when I am. I find tremendous satisfaction in having a lot to do in a little time and finding the perfect schedule that will accomodate all tasks. When I'm in this mode, I get more done in a day then I'd normally get done in a month. Crossing things off the to-do list, especially the complicated items that require multiple phone calls and lots of online research, raises my spirits and makes me feel capable of anything. I almost feel like a machine — I'm up-to-speed and humming along, churning through any task that presents itself.
