Play my drum.

Well of late I have turned into a work'o'holic. I have found more than anything else that you just need to get away from the screen, watching a movie on the laptop just does not cut it.
So what to do? Well on Monday I walked down to the local Tesco and back (40mins) and then made cakes! I guess what I do is work more but take longer breaks.
Maybe tomorrow I will go visit some family.

I find that alcohol helps ;)
Tonight I will be watching Italy v Scotland in the world cup qualifier. Something tells me I'll need to unwind after this.

Get out of the house. Go somewhere. Anywhere. Usually there's a lake or a river at the other end but that's not a requirement. The idea is to change the environment and do it in as big a way possible.
When I can't do that I go out in my garage. I have a little shop out there with some tools and some scrap lumber and I turn the music on and piddle around for hours like some sort of misplaced master carpenter.

No No No - That counts as work (=screen).
>> Italy + Scotland = Football
Scotland 1 Italy 0

I saddle up a horse and ride or load up and go shooting.

Ahh digitalghost, can you do both? :)
| 12:54 pm on Mar 28, 2007 (gmt 0)|
Sure can. I can shoot from Blaze's back, when I try that with Tiara, about 50% of the time, I find myself on my back. ; )

Bicycle. As long as I keep my mind from drifting towards work.

Go to the pub with friends, read, watch movies.

Ski in the winter.
Hike in the summer.

Hit the links, though I usually need to unwind afterwards.

Club baby seals, torch orphanages, put habanero extract in little old ladies' dentures, take one soda from a six-pack at the supermarket, rip off mattress labels and do volunteer Web sites.

Not in any particular order:
* take food, drink, and a book into my hammock under the grape arbour.
* invite one or more friends over for food, drink, and conversation.
* go sailing o'er, and diving under, the salt chuck.

I have that same thing happen. I workout at the gym, but my mind goes to my problems. I need to focus on my form, but my mind goes off to business issues. I cannot be in the moment. This is a serious concern for me.

Fuel up my nitro RC's and give them three tanks around the track on my property . . . . or . . . . crash my RC heli into the house. Empty wallet and repair said heli. Rinse and repeat. :-)

>What do you do to unwind?
Sail, play golf, vacation, go for a drive in the countryside......but, my favorite, and most common activity, is to sit by the pool and do absolutely NOTHING!

Turn off the computer and stare at the blank screen.

Most days I do a hours brisk walking along the seafront listening to BBC downloads on my MP3 player. At home I can relax with my harmonica. Occasionally I'll have a wee kip in the afternoon 'cause I can - I'm happily retired ;-)
