Relaxed

After being isolated at home for 2 months, I can see how my work routine was so stressful where I’d have to seek relaxation as a part time job. I’d go to the gym to blow off stream, get a massage because I was tense, get my nails done to reward myself for a bad week. Stay-at-home Me is now so much more relaxed, and I don’t feel the need for any of those things now. Bad for the economy, yes. But not needing to outsource my relaxation anymore is awesome.

Who knew capitalism really isn't very good for our health?

indeed! It is like coming off of a fast/cleanse and being reminded that fruit tastes so much better than candy. One just needed the clean pallet to realize the priority.

The capitalism aspect I can live with. I’m still working for this company to make the shareholders money. It’s the egos and pomp and show and sexism and politics of the office that gives me stress. I haven’t seen the worst offenders in months. And I feel great. Don’t need to drink to forget the daily office crap, or pay gyms, spas etc as I mentioned to relax. My work life has improved. And I probably will be WFH permanently.

If I wasn't so against the word, I'd say "privelige"
