Relaxing vs Fulfilling Activities
After a long, stressful day of work, I’ll go out for a walk, watch a TV show, or spend some time on my phone. These are mindless activities that serve as an escape from the hustle of everyday life. Especially since I’m mentally exhausted by this point.
I find writing, reading dense books, and hacking on projects fulfilling but I don’t have the mental capacity for these activities right after work.
Before, I thought that these activities were the same. Yes, I enjoy working on projects and writing but I didn’t necessarily find them relaxing. I learned that relaxing and fulfilling activities are distinct.
