Anybody feel like just sitting in their car for few minutes when you pull into work?Jan 9
In my car right now and could use the few minutes of peace before it starts all over again..
- Micro Focus / EngbroteinEvery day as soon as I finish eating lunch I go and hang out in my car for half an hour or so. I recline the seat, roll down the window a bit, and read a book while drinking coffee. Or I apply to jobs on my phone and do phone screens. It’s become a very therapeutic daily ritual for me so you’re definitely not alone.
- New / MktgNotALifermoreI have an hour commute in each direction. You’d think that I’d want to be out of that car as soon as possible when I get to work, but nope! I chill for 2-10 mins...prepare myself for the s***show that is my company. When I get home, I can’t hop out of my car fast enough to spend time w my wife and kids. #FormerWorkaholic
- Axtria DesiLaundaI do it when I reach home (after gym). It's a few minutes of peace because the day has ended (in terms of major chores like work and exercise) and I can have the next hour or so just to myself - either doing nothing, lying down on bed, talking to friends, watching a TV show, surfing interner, or scrolling blind. I sit in my car for 10-15mins (sometimes even more) just looking at the street lights shining on the road in the dark, doing some introspection, being at peace, feeling healthy after a workout, thinking about the things that bother me or that I have to make a priority, feeling the soreness in my body, taking a break from the rat race, thanking God, and remembering my parents and close friends who make this life worthwhile.
- Adobe LuckyChrmYou’re normal! I see a lot of my coworkers do that - myself included. For me, the Seattle commute sucks, so I take 10-15 minutes to decompress in my car before heading up to my office.
