Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - DOWNTIME AND ME -

If work is full-on, it means a lot of travel and sleep de­pri­va­tion, so when things qui­eten I re­treat, sloth-like, un­der a du­vet and stay there un­til it is em­bar­rass­ing or I have an ur­gent crav­ing for crisps.

I have down­loaded an app to help me switch off. I mean, when I see it writ­ten down it sounds pretty in­cred­i­ble, and per­haps I over-paid, but it re­minds me to sit still, breathe deeply and be in the mo­ment! That said, I find that whiskey on the rocks has a sim­i­lar ef­fect.
