A Habit For Unplugging From Work 🌱



Definition: Being new to or inexperienced in a field.

Throughout your career, you’ve strived to be better, to get you to where you are today.

Society encourages mastery, but sometimes, this can make work that used to be fun, stressful and unenjoyable.

What if you gave yourself the freedom to just enjoy… and not worry about being good?


Constantly pushing for perfection can trigger unnecessary stress.

But having a hobby is all about having something fun to spend time doing.


When you embrace the art of a hobby and don’t constantly aim to ‘become better at it’, your energy is put into relaxing, recharging, and being creative.


Why habits? Your time is valuable and limited; you don’t need more complex systems. My goal is to provide you with simple, effective tools to support your physical and mental well-being and make you more efficient and conserve mental energy. (read more)

Pick a hobby. Maybe it’s something you’ve always wanted to try.

Step 1: Choose your activity

Step 2: Carve out time, weekly, dedicated to enjoying this activity

Step 3: Be present and enjoy the act of doing


In every edition of Creatures of Habit, I feature a product to help you implement this week’s habit.

If you are having trouble thinking of something, I found a list of over 1,000 hobbies. Now, you can't say you couldn’t think of anything…


This week, devote a couple of hours to that hobby you've eyed but never tried. Remember, it's all about fun, no pressure.
