After an especially long and exhausting drive or flight, a grueling week at work, or a mind-numbing exam period — what’s the one thing you do to feel human again?
As I put my key into the lock of the front door, my birds tweet in recognition. An instant feeling more human step one.
Well, the two first things I will do are:
1. Make coffee
2. Start up my laptop and play a computer RPG game like Skyrim, Dragon Age or Diablo. This disengages my mind and relaxes my body almost immediately. I am reinvigorated and transported. All worries, grueling journeys or work, fade and rub out. From dismemberment to re-embodiment in two easy steps.
