Time-out to read

When my week gets a bit too crazy, I take time out to do something that I enjoy. Here’s my piece of surviving the week by taking a bit of me-time to indulge in one’s favourite reading materials… What do you do when things around you are moving a bit too fast?

Your picture looks so relaxing and enjoyable. That' what I'd to do too, i.e. read a good book. I also watch comedies to de-stress. A lazy day by the beach sounds fine too.

I read, too. I read every single day, every chance I get. I take a book with me everywhere!

I go in the garden and lose myself in the aroma of the herbs and flowers. I work at pruning or weeding and forget about stress.

I love this one! Apart from the figure I really like the origami crane. Yeah, my day job is 45 hrs a week as a bookstore manager when I'm not designing/illustrating, so yeah. I do tend to read a lot.
