It is widely accepted that reading newspapers or books can easily divert our mind into positive thinking and we can easily find the solutions for our problems. Many people believe that we should rest our minds during leisure time and some people think that it is important to utilize this period to improve our mindset with the activities like reading something or solving any puzzles. The subsequent paragraphs elaborate more on my perspective with appropriate illustrations.
When a person has a hectic schedule and is regularly working for many hours in a day, it is easily important to divert our minds whenever we get any free time. It helps us to think of a solution in a different way and we can utilize this time by either reading books or newspapers or solving the puzzles. The impact of these activities varies from person to person. For instance, when I was in Bangalore for my internship and my manager used to give me the topics on which I need to start the research. I was not able to do that during the working hours however when I was not having anything to do I started solving puzzles and that solved my problem as I was able to think of the solutions while playing that. In other words, when we divert our mind from the questions we usually get the idea of all the solutions.
Similarly, it is also very essential to rest our minds as we are continuously working every day for 10-12 hours per day due to work from home policies. Sometimes we might feel stressed working this much and not able to concentrate on anything and the best solution for that is to rest the mind as it requires focus to complete any task.
As a result, both have important roles to play to progress towards our goal and in my opinion, we can achieve what by spending our leisure time reading books or solving puzzles as we can also relax at the same time by just doing the things in a slower manner.
