R&R – now that’s a word most of us use but are so unaware of its true meaning. While working in our important corporate jobs, we have come to associate this term with the short, knee jerk breaks we ill-manage to take while assuring ourselves (with a well-intentioned mind) that a longer holiday to that dream destination will happen next time when the promotion comes in; I will move to a more challenging role, that’s when I will reward myself. Never happens, does it.
Rest and recreation is not necessarily a physical holiday from one destination to another but resting our mental and physical faculties with nothingness. It’s when we switch off devices and our dependency on them. When we learn to let go of the Internet and Facebook, when we can take a walk without taking a selfie or posting something on the net or taking a work call …..
It’s spending time with oneself and with people who matter doing things that make us happy.
How about you? Do you like to smell the roses or coffee once in a while?
Passionate about everything design, I am in love with photography, travel and baking. My writing journey was initiated with my letter writing hobby as a child and has metamorphosised into serious blogging. I indulge with reading fantasy fiction, day dreaming and sipping good wine.
