Life can be stressful can’t it? In my life it seems like things are always busy, and I am always rushing from one activity to another. So when I get sometime to relax and decompress I want to do something that will take me to another world and let me forget all the things I should be doing.
One of my favorite ways to decompress is to read, because it is so easy to get lost in a book and forget everything else. Right now I am reading my way through some Swedish mystery stories, which might not sound relaxing, but it is to me! I am not someone who finds doing nothing relaxing, I like to have my mind engaged. So mystery stories are perfect, because I can try to figure out the puzzle, and enjoy reading about people with really messed up lives.
Another great way to lose yourself and decompress is to play video games. I like the complicated ones that actually have a story line, not games where you just drive a car around a race track. A new one that sounds fun is Far Cry 3, which is today’s Amazon Gold Box Deal of the day.
A compelling story line is a must for me in games, and this one has a great one. The game is designed so you have control over all the action, and can decide how to proceed. It is set on an island, and is perfect for getting engrossed in another world and leaving your everyday life behind.
So even though things like dark, depressing mysteries and complicated video games might not be relaxing for some people, they are for me. They allow me to escape for a little while from reality and avoid, at least for a little while, burning questions like, “What is for dinner?” and “Is it snowing too hard to drive basketball?”
Let me know your favorite way to relax! Do you like distraction like me, or would you rather just soak in a tub and empty your mind of everything?
