Mini Breaks

Gosh, I’m brimming with words.

I’m teeming with words, minus the spaces, it feels like I’m going to explode.

I can’t even begin to explain how overwhelming the whole work situation is.

It’s the audit period. I knew it was going to be a bloodbath but being in the middle of a bloodbath for the first time without arms is dangerous.

But I didn’t come here to talk about work.

I came here to take about what I figured out in between.

My mind doesn’t stop even when I’m sleeping.

So there are a few things I do to take my mind off even if it’s for a few minutes.

1-Avoiding my phone during family time

Last weekend I went to visit my 2 aunts. I kept my phone away from me. In another room.

If it’s around me, I might get a work-related call, and then my mind will start working on it.

Not looking at a phone for like 2 hours is not going to do major harm, especially when you are with your family. If there’s an emergency people can reach you through your family.

I do the same when I’m with dad too. it’s important to give few minutes to your family no matter how busy you are, it’s not for them, it’s for us.

2: Taking random pictures.

I took this one at a client.

Focusing on something else for even less than 5 minutes is going to help your mind a great deal. Trust me if I don’t do this I don’t even give my brain 5 minutes of break.

3- A mindless game.

I have this candy crush kinda game, dream blast, on my phone which takes less than 2 minutes for one stage/round.

Those 2 minutes are a gift to me because my mind is occupied with something that doesn’t take a lot of your mental energy, you don’t really have to think for a game like that, it’s just a few touches on the screen. (not endorsing the game most of the time it makes you lose intensionally)

Honestly, in the times like these, I can’t say no to work. I can see it’s a tough time for everyone, even though it’s self-inflicted because of mismanagement by upper management.

And since it’s my first audit period I have too many challenges to deal with.

But there are a few little things that I can do, that won’t take much of my time. 

And will save me from doing totally insane… hopefully.

  1. Putting the phone down is crucial. We have come to rely on these devices so heavily that our society has become disassociated. The infinite scrolling without actual retaining is a tragedy waiting to happen. Nice way to focus on what’s important, leaving the busy work to the side. ☺️ enjoy your weekend!
