The modern lifestyle is definitely a busy one and the overload of studies and work becomes very tiring sometimes.
In such a situation, a day off or a holiday is always a welcome treat.
I have had many such breaks from work but a memorable experience was during last weekend.
It was before ‘Raksha Bandhan’ right after my ‘UK student visa’ seminar and I was working on this project with a deadline that was very near.
Soon my team completed this seminar, we were rewarded a surprise but surely a pleasant one a day off.
It was Saturday and I remember having a very tranquil day.
In fact, I had spent the whole day unwinding as per my whim more than the usual holidays.
I woke up an hour later than I usually do on weekdays and spent the morning in riding a motorbike to a faraway café for a morning ride coupled with a breakfast.
Later in the afternoon, I laze around the home reading a book.
I had ordered food from a nearby restaurant as I did not want to cook.
In the evening, I went to meet my friend and we had a long conversation with delicious food and cold drinks.
I returned to my home at around eleven in the night and drifted off into comfortable and alpha level sleep.
Overall, it was a relaxing day because it came as a reward after a lot of hard work.
