Do Tell: What Do You Love to Do?

We live in an instant gratification time and place. With BlackBerries and laptops, it's hard to disconnect from work, your friends and your family to just relax and do your own thing. Having alone time is incredibly important but it seems like those days are harder and harder to come by. So while you're busy doing, doing, doing and going, going, going, do tell, what do you wish you were doing instead? Lounging on the couch, soaking in the tub, or even cleaning your messy apartment?

I spend my "me time" running along the lake. There's nothing like a 7-mile run to clear your mind.

Watch TV, use my computer, doing crafts like making jewelry. My new favorite thing to do is to play Wii. I'm addicted to the tennis.

Fashionhore-I love to grocery shop too! My friends all think I am nuts, but it relaxes me. I also get in the longest line and read the trash mags!

I love to grocery shop. I make a list and gather the necessary coupons days before I acutally go, so that I am not stressed. Other than that, I read fashion magazines outside on a lounge chair while drinking sparkling water or something with a little alcohol in it. I am so PG! It's sad.

I like cleaning my room or organizing my undies, shirts, cosmetics, things like that in my room. Sometimes I'm so busy with all of the classes and reasearching, that I really wish I had time to really enjoy the comforts of my room.

lizzie, I hear you re: Texas Hold 'Em. I love to get together for hours of poker. But beyond that, I really need some downtime right now. I find that I love to put on loud, upbeat music and... organize. Yep, sad, but true.

TO be honest, I wish i was going going going. I mean, i go to work and i run errands, but i have no social life so to speak, and i know iam whining and getting on a soap box here, but everyone at work has their own little gorup thing, they are mostly out of towners (i am local) so they hang out, do stuff, don't invite me, etc. I go home and do all the stuff you all wish yo ucould. i read, watch tv, clean my already clean apartment....etc. blah.

I'm a big TX Hold 'Em fan, so there's nothing like sitting around a table with my guy friends and playing cards. :)

My husband and I make sure we give each other down time frequently to avoid burn-out. So it's not really a wish, I just get to do it. Massage appointments, regular pedicures, an afternoon by myself shopping. I read all the time, so that's not a downtime thing for me.

Read a great book - one that just sucks me in from page one. I can't worry about the little stuff or what else I should be doing once I'm lost in the pages.
