Since my daily work is a lot about communication, I like to spend free time on my own, if possible. Should I be accompanied by a great book on these moments, everything is how it should be. When reading, I find it really hard to quit before the very end, if the book really gets to me. I only tend to read, when I do have the time to enjoy the book and there are no disturbances. Though sometimes it happens, that I do have to stop reading half-way, and then the book can end up on my bedside table for a long time. So, I do have a pile of half-read books waiting. At this point, there are four of them.
At the same time, I am also an active person during my free moments. I really enjoy spending time with my friends, be it a hiking trip in the nature, evening at the theatre, or any other get-together. For instance, I am part of a company of friends, who take a break 3 times a week at lunchtime to meet up and train together. This way, pleasure is combined with necessity. A lunchtime training in an enjoyable company really gives you a boost for the rest of the day!
