Hey Daniels, to kick off Wellness Month I wanted to continue my interview style Saturdays with Shal with part II of what’s your favourite little things. Annnnnd here we go!
“Adaeze, what is your favourite little thing to do?” Adaeze replied with something that I believe more people should set aside time for: themselves. Just you and your favourite hobby. For her, it was going to the movies. Her answer was, “But yeah, my favourite thing is to go home and get all dressed up: full make, heels, etc, and go see a movie, by myself. Like i won't plan or anything, i would just go and see what they have, and pick some random movie, unless there's a movie I really want to see that just came out. Yeah I sit by myself, eat my popcorn by myself, put my feet up, take off my shoes, laugh as much as I want. It's so weird, but so relaxing. I do it all the time.” Thanks Adaeze!
Chaya: "I love to spend my down time reading fashion and food magazines while drinking hot chocolate (I think I'm the only one in this faculty who isn't a coffee drinker).” I laughed at this because I also don’t drink coffee, and I feel like us non-coffee drinkers are outnumbered (unless you took my advice three Saturdays ago on cutting back coffee). Thanks Chaya, that sounds like an awesomely relaxed time.
Veronika’s answer made me happy because she likes to get out of the house and go explore. "I mean it's not super crazy exciting but it's what I do lol. I either like to go on adventure hikes at different conservation areas and just walk around and explore and let my mind roam free, no worries, no stress, OR sometimes just plain and simple nap (bc I'm a crazy fun person).” Thanks Veronika, I think others should take notes on how you unwind.
Jay’s answer was something I also could definitely relate to. He said, “whenever I’m stressed out from school I like to put on my headphones and either listen to music at home or just go for a walk and let my mind wander. It’s interesting the places you can find when you have no set route.” Thanks, Jay, getting fresh air is a great way to refresh the brain.
Dina’s answer was also great but definitely makes me look 98.6% less sophisticated. Check out what she said… “My favourite little thing to do after a long day of classes is go home, play music and start painting whatever is on my mind. I usually find painting as a stress reliever and something that takes my mind off the stress of school.” I feel like I just picture some fancy Beethoven in the background. Also, I’m jealous because I’m a terrible painter. That’s so cool Dina, thanks!
Expect me to be posting lots for February’s Wellness Month! I’ll see you soon, Daniels. Keep it classy out there.
