If you ask a number of people out there how they manage to rest and recuperate, especially after they have had a hectic session at work, or at the office, their answer is going to be that they have their own ways and means of unwinding unless of course they happen to be confirmed workaholics.
The age-old ways in which one could get rid of stress and tension, was getting a massage done, listening to music, cooking something in the kitchen, or just sitting quietly in one corner of the garden, and dreaming of absolutely nothing at all. The last one is of course something a large number of us want to do, if only we had the time to sit and stare! If I tell any of my workaholic friends, to take some time off to contemplate the reticulate venation of a leaf, they are going to give me a look of “what makes you that way, do you think I have the time to look at the venous system of a leaf?” They may have course not remember it, but when they were children, they spend hours and hours, contemplating a butterfly, a daisy, a dandelion, or anything else, which caught their interest, and did not consider that time wasted.
How come the moment we grew up, we decided to make stress and strain our portion, forgot how to relax, and decided we would rather live a life on the go, instead of at a turtle pace.

This reminds me of a really cute story told to me, by one of my friends, whose father told him that the first thing he did, when he woke up in the morning was touch his slippers 30 times, first thing in the morning. Well, I do not enjoy these bending exercises, first thing in the morning, but it seemed this oldster enjoyed this sort of activity. And then he gave a sly smile and wink and said, “Then I get out of bed and put them on.”
I guess he had been pulling our leg to such a great extent that we needed binoculars to check where our foot was.
