I have many times felt that being in the company of so many people sometimes stagnates thought and listening to stories of growth, work, bitching, contaminates thoughts. When I start getting such a feeling, I know, I need a change, away from the phone calls, family, friends and everybody – Time to refresh, press F5.
The best way I think is of an evening walk, alone in the company of the positive greenery to just rejuvenate from the fast city life. Lack of time prevents me from having an evening walk everyday, but finding out time for 2-3 days gives back the mental strength to cope up with the other rats of the rat race. So if you think you are getting short of fresh thoughts – take a break.
