How to recharge when you have a 9 to 9 job

  • Print
There are 9 to 5 jobs and then, there are jobs that start when you wake up and go on until your head hits the bed.
If you leave your home early in the morning and get back only after 12 hours, I'm sure you're desperately looking for a quick and easy way to recharge your mind before you have to do the same 12-hour routine the next day.

'Me Time' is super important and I'm sure everyone who is familiar with your schedule has told you that. Well, let us tell you one amazing activity that will make a difference and help reboot your mind. Colouring!

Hey, don't knock it off until you've tried it - and by 'tried it' I mean as an adult. All it takes is one colouring book (which will cost you less than Rs 200) and a set of coloured pens or pencils.

We don't promise you a miracle. It's not the same thing as meditating or seeing a therapist but more of a coping mechanism. If you're dealing with a stressful situation during a major part of your day, colouring can help you create a positive space for yourself.

And it's just so easy! You can carry the book and pens with you at all times in your handbag and take to it even during the day when you have a short break.

I personally love it because of the concentration required to colour between the lines. It doesn't allow you to think of deadlines, what your boss said about your work or any of those other things that keep weighing you down.
Go on, let your creative juices flow!
