Remembering the old times
Sometime during “hustle being king”, the long summer afternoons went from being a nice lazy romantic construct to being a boring and dull one. There was a time, a lazy afternoon, by yourself, a wet light dupatta on you to keep yourself cool during load shedding and untimely naps- were all things that dreams were made of. Outfits for the family holiday were planned in advance and just the act of dressing up was looked forward to.

Now we fear boredom more than anything else
As summer holidays approach and many of us travel to our villages/family homes, the one pressing question we have is “what will we do there”? The nauseating pace of the times we live in has made boredom and the lack of activity, greatly undesirable.
But the truth is, boredom (which is not the same thing as being lazy) is a huge part of human development. It’s when your mind is empty and resting that you get some of the best ideas. A comfy outfit only adds to the joy of the process.
The day dreams- the wandering of the mind- is really you getting to know yourself without having a self-help article in front of you.
Here’s how to make use of the free hours this summer holiday
Thinking, listening to songs, watching life go by- are not wastes of time. They are a crucial part of what helps us optimize ourselves as human beings in the long run.
So go… wear a nice loose summery printed lawn suit, pick some fruit…
