This is a phrase that you will hear from a lot of people right now. I just want to hide from the world and forget about what is going on. This is so much easier said than done. To hide from the world, you would have to basically turn off all the contact with the outside world for a while. Yes, that means no radio, Twitter, Facebook, news, etc. and that would be a challenge nowadays. Even the simple task of going to the store to pick up something means that you aren’t hiding from the world.
I know that when I say that I want to hide from the world, I am saying that I just need a bit of a break from being overloaded with everything that is happening outside my area. I have been able to do that sometimes simply by putting on an audiobook and not looking at social media for a while. It doesn’t take long before you start to feel better, as that bit of a break is what we all need. Yes, we take that break and hide from the world when we are sleeping, but there are days when just tuning out for a bit helps so much. It is a means of refocusing and being able to get things done that you would like to do.
When I hide from the world, I am also trying to do something to relax. Yes, you can hide from the world while working, but being able to sit and forget about everything other than the project that you are doing does feel good. I normally have some projects that are simple to do for these times when I just want to do nothing, but I also want to see something accomplished.
Yes, we all hide from the world a little, and some more than others. Being able to sit and do something without knowing what is going on in the world even for a couple of hours is a nice break. We all need some recharge time no matter who we are, and taking a break from what is happening around you can really help. I know that for me, I try and spend a bit of time at the end of the day avoiding social media as it means that when I finally go to bed, I am not thinking about everything that is going on in the world.
Remember, hiding from the world for bits of time isn’t bad, and no one should tell you that you can’t do this. I am now going to go and hide from the world for a couple of hours and listen to my audiobook.
