Read a book that isn’t directly related to your career

I love that suggestion. It makes me take a peak into other stuff I love like gardening or playing an instrument or learning how to cook.

Come to think of it.. learning how to cook is an essential life skills. One that shouldn't be ignored.

@Rashmi Gandhi , I agree about cooking skills. Though I have workd a lot on food processing as a Chem E, I cannot claim  anything much on the cooking front. I am alright with brewing coffee, boiling (often boiling over!)milk, cooking plain rice, toasting bread (I scrape off the charred portions before anyone sees) and such.

When I do attempt something more serious people either declare that they are not hungry or that they have just eaten elsewhere. This is inspite of my using a digital scale to weigh ingredients and graduated jars for volume measurements. Currentlymy culinary experiments are done when I am alone in the house. To me the food I cook seems tolerable especially as I divert my attention with a book and surround myself with commercial pickles, chips and such. Very useful to keep my weight down also.
