What was Beautiful:
Birdsong in the morning, all the birds hopping around my garden. Cherry blossoms.
What made me Laugh:
Dogs trying to play on me while I’m exercising.
What I’ve been up to:
Spring cleaning, putting the garden in.
What I’m reading:
and the Psychology of Side Projects – “From a psychological perspective, it would be better if people engaged in activities in which they sought challenges and tried to match them with their skills. Evidently, his also applies to work: Optimal experiences correlate positively with mental health. However, in our society leisure is used as an “escape” from work. “Escapism” in this respect means that people do not seek meaningful leisure activities for their own growth and development, but instead resort to passive activities to escape from everyday strains and problems. Such behavior is frequently associated with a passive lifestyle and boredom, which in turn might feed into apathy and depression.”
