We all decompress in different ways. Some jog, others cook, there’s the veritable “walker”. Me? Well.. I like to do things that may seem unnatural. I’m an adrenalin junkie. I don’t do it so much for the “thrill” of doing it, but for the one moment of clarity I get during the act of whatever it is I’m doing. Whether it’s skydiving, bungie jumping, or propelling myself down the road at some insane speed. There’s that quick thought that I could die at any moment and it’s at that moment I gain true perspective of everything. It makes me realize things like work stress, P&Ls, money.. you know.. things that are major stress-points for people.. well, they just don’t matter.
Just remember boys and girls.. wear a helmet and always put on your safety belt. bah!
