As I was scrolling through my Instagram feed, checking what’s new out there, I came across a former co-worker picture with a caption that says “It’s never all work and it’s never all play.”
I myself had just came back from a 4-day staycation where I totally let myself “play hard”. By nature I am take myself and things seriously but during that trip you could have barely recognize me. Then I realized I had went back to school 2 years ago and since then I decided to put all “play” aside. This meant no partying, no clubbing; just me and my textbooks until I finally graduate.
I realized now that this wasn’t such a good idea to ban all plays from my life for a long period of time. Every now and then you have to let up and have fun. Find something you have been wanting to do and just do it!
Recently I discovered the pleasures of travelling. I have been loving the feel of meeting new people, discovering the locals’ cultural ways, tasting new food, doing some sightseeing. How amazing ?
I strongly encourage you to make some time for play as it helps mentally, physically and emotionally. You can do either do it solo or you can do it with a group of friends. Just make sure that you are safe.
Always Let a friend or a family member where you are going to be.
Work Hard, Play Hard and Stay Safe !
