Work & Unwind

May 7, 2014

‘All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’ was one of the sayings I had heard from my elders and teachers when I was young and at school.

At that young age these proverbs or sayings seem to be literal and are taken at the face value. For neither a child wants to nor is able to understand the underlying deeper meaning and essence of the saying. It is only later that one realizes the hidden truth behind the saying inspiring us to maintain a balance of work and relaxation in life.

Some even forget the saying when they are older and lead a lop-sided existence of mostly being a workaholic. The trend is getting more widespread in today’s fast moving competitive world. Levels of stress and tensions are increasing as we all want be distinctive, give our best, perform better than the rest, and remain ahead of others. In the process we tend to forget what and who we are.

A Chinese proverb sums it up quite rightly ‘Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.’

So to know who we are, unwinding and relaxing every day is essential. Different people may have different life-style and different way of unwinding. Some may feel relaxed helping their children with their school projects, some may like to help their spouse in the kitchen, some may enjoy painting or gardening, some enjoying watching TV, some may find writing a blog a method of unwinding. Some may find relaxation in a game of table tennis or badminton or any other sport.

One of our friends is following an unusual and unique way to unwind himself. He will spend evenings with his family at home on week days and go for shopping or outing on Saturdays. However, on Saturday evening he has Black Dog Whisky, the latest of them being Triple Gold Reserve with nuts or snacks before meals and loves to share his treasure of various brands of Black Dog whiskies with his group of friends. According to him, ‘Black Dog Whisky da jawab nahin!’

All we need to identify is our own way to unwind ourselves and enjoy better and balanced life!
