I am sort of workaholic. I am so much into my tasks on a daily basis that I almost have no time to free myself. But if I have spare time, reading will definitely be my favorite thing to do when it comes to choosing an activity to relax after work.
There are a small range of things I normally try to do to wind down, but reading books is one of my favorite. As my tasks frequently make my mind stressed, books should be the best therapy for me to escape from all of working stuffs. If possible, I would like to enjoy the evening in a cozy and peaceful ambiance with soothing music, warm lights, soft sofa and a tasty cup of tea. Then, I will put my feet up, lay onto the sofa, digging into the story until it reaches 11 pm. In cold days, there will also a blanket for me. I find it therapeutic and relaxing when I spend a little time on my own, to nurture my soul with amazing and attractive adventures from books.
In short, reading books is my choice which helps me get away from all the pressures and have a more balanced life.
