Owning a forum or blog can be very stressful in which you will feel tension from the constant demand for new content. So, occasionally you will want to rest your mind momentarily, but what can you actually do without leaving for a long period of time? Well, you could:
Go for a Jog!
Exercise is a proven way to relieve stress and is also a good alternative to sitting in a chair all day.
Get a Snack!
Typing can work up an appetite and I’m sure most of us have a kitchen in our house. Get a quick snack like a granola bar or a yogurt will help increase the brain flow but make sure not to eat too much where you will get sleepy from digestion.
Watch a Movie/T.V.!
Even though I’m against sitting on the couch for a long period of time you could always turn on a flick for a bit. Resting the mind and getting away from the real world is something we all take part in from time to time, as it allows our brain to rest without an real vacation.
Take A Shower!
Sometimes after sitting in front of the computer for a long enough period of time, you might forget to bathe. So, if you need the break and have the spare time then grab the soap and get to it. I’m sure you’ll feel relaxed after the break and your room-mate will probably appreciate it as well.
Have a Drink!
If your sure that you are done working for the day, then you could always relax by having a glass of wine. If you’re not of age to drink yet, then grape juice should be able to pucker your lips up just as good.
These are some of the activities I do when I want to take a break from blogging. Sure, there are thousands of more things you can do, but just remember that taking a break is just as important as pleasing your members. If you’re broken down and tried, then you can’t help anyone. So, what do you do when you take a break?
