Coffee Break

Many enjoy having their coffee break.

Some enjoy gathering together for a good time. Our daily work is full of stress and many just can't cope with it anymore. They need to take a break and a breath of fresh air from work and deadlines. They need to unwind and de-stress. They go to a restaurant or cafe to see friends, to have a nice chat, to catch up with the latest news, to meet up with some new people, to gossip, and to laugh.

Some go for a snack and a drink. Some eat like a horse to release tensions. And there are those who just come for a drink and a smoke.

Some enjoy reading newspapers or magazine articles quietly at a table in the corner or leaning against the wall at the far end of the room. They don't enjoy company. They just want to be left alone and free to do their own thing peacefully.

Some talk a lot, covering a wide range of topics and issues. Some of these talks are important and fulfilling, others are merely a waste of time. But they just enjoy hanging together to have fun and to relax, to learn and to share with one another. It makes me realize that work without leisure is simply exhausting and consuming. It wears us down, and in time makes our work less productive.

I enjoy spending time with my friends in a chinese coffee shop. I also enjoy sitting alone in the corner pondering over things while eating and drinking. But there are times I just enjoy sitting alone watching people talking, whispering, shouting and laughing. Apparently it can also help me to release stress by smiling along.LOL

Sometimes we need to spend our time with our friends and family. And watching movies and eating in a new inexpensive restaurant is our favorite past time. But, sometimes, were both busy in different activities, we only stay at home and sleep. Nice post, Thanks a lot, it is so nice to be in your site.
