Economic meltdown…no or low business…no job security…stress…carrying work home…Family life also not going steady…Pressure all over. Well!!! Almost all of us are experiencing this presently.
I am too…but now I have found a unique way of diverting my mind from work to family life. I call it the ‘Switch Method’.
Switch Method – You switch your identities completely and indulge into something totally different which takes your mind off from pressuring issues to something more relaxing and soothing.
It is something similar to what you do on a holiday, a picnic, a party or when you are along with some dear and near one.
As we are presently speaking on a topic related to family life and family values…I think the relevance of this should be attributed to the same.
I utilized the ‘Switch Method’ to my advantage. It is quoted that ‘The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’. I just bended the saying ‘The way to a family happiness is through their stomach’. I started to transform myself to be the Chef of the home at required times.
When ever I have a tough day at the office I practice the following:
As soon as I am out of my office ‘The Chef’ is transpired into me. I start thinking about the new dish that I need to make for my family today. Once decided on the cuisine for the night I then go out looking for the ingredients in case they are not available in the house. I check the same with my dear wife who equally supports me in this effort.
My mind by this time is totally off my work and I am concentrating on getting the best dish out for my family for that night. When I am cooking the dish every family member supports me and the joy on their faces is a memory immortal.
When they are eating the dish they do give their frank comments. The comments can be applauding or also can be ‘you can do better’. In any sense the comments are encouraging for me and give me a sense of complete satisfaction.
My transformation from A Bread Winner to a Bread Maker makes my family even happier. THIS I BELIEVE GETS OUT OUR TRUE FAMILY VALUES & HAPPINESS.
