I’m getting conflicted advice when it come to what to do on your off time. I hear people say you should plan it all out and have something on the horizon to deal with those other items. Others have said just go home and not focus on work. Spend your time winding down from work. It’ll be beneficial for your mental health as your brain can shutdown stress-free and can even subliminally solve some of your work problems.
My boss has told me swimming & bicycling has allowed him to really think about things and get resolution and relaxation. Unfortunately, I don’t have an activity where I can zone out and just think. I mean bicycling use to be it but I’m lacking the motivation to even want to ride a bike right now. Maybe yoga. I’m too cheap to buy a yoga mat, towel, and attend a class or two. So far I’ve only been to 2 sessions. I’m yearning for an activity to do. Something new and refreshing. Something I haven’t done before.
So frustrated with myself for being so nonchalant. I gotta get out of this rut of nothingness. I really need a break.
