I know I could utilize my time more wisely but I think most of us need some down time. Time to recharge both our mental & physical "batteries". That is what my so-called wasted time usually is...recharging time. You may call it something else. Relaxation. Silence. Meditation. Peace.
I love to read and haven't read as much in the past few months as usual. So...that's back on my list of to-do's. I bought a new book several weeks ago...and I'm keeping it unread until a special time comes that I know I"ll have hours and hours to read it. Years ago I read the book "The Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett. I loved it! Recently Follett came out with a sequal "World Without End" and when it came out in paperback, I grabbed a copy. And even though I can't wait to read it...I will wait until I can savor it for the first time.
I also love to reread my favorite books. I have several authors whose books I will buy and keep. And even though I may have read their books several times, they are such good authors that their books are worth reading over & over.
I love the tactical sense of holding a book...and holding a page in anticipation of turning it and learning more about the challenges facing my favorite character or the most welcome payback my least favorite character is getting.
What is your favorite way to recharge?
