It’s no secret…I love my job. It’s also no secret that I love my time “after the job.” LOL
I try to do a little bit of everything when it comes to after work activities…except going to the movies as some of you may know. 🙂 I like trying different workout classes, walking/biking around my neighborhood, volunteering and…COOKING AND EATING!
One of my absolutely favorite things to do is cook. I’m one of those silly people that like food prepping for the week, which includes chopping vegetables for for my daily salads/egg scrambles, roasting or grilling unique cuts of meat, or anything in between! It’s safe to say that I’m DEFINITELY NOT someone safe to take to a grocery store or farmer’s market.
The unfortunate thing is that a fun cooking past time makes you want to only watch Food Network and buy anything and everything they use to cook…because, you know…I’m becoming a professional chef!
I’ve tried to curb my purchases regarding my hobby, but sometimes it just gets away from me – a dutch oven here, a lemon zester there or the various different kinds of colanders one has to have.
So, what is your favorite after work activity? Are you an avid gym-goer? Do you like mid-week matinees? Do you have your own paint easel set-up in your living room (talking to you, Eloiza!) or do you prefer the quit enjoyment of getting home, relaxing on the couch and binge watching your favorite show? Maybe even reading a book?!
I thoroughly believe you have to have something that isn’t work related for your “me time.” It makes you happy to get to your past time and happy to get back to work! So…what’s yours?
