Exploring Aradia

Exploring Aradia

At the moment I am enjoying my character break and just exploring different places in Second Life to film. The girls need a holiday sometimes don’t they.

I find after Halloween and before the Christmas period seems to be a good time for that break and also many sims in Second Life undergo their Autumnal changes to winter over the month of November.

I love the colours of Autumn and I certainly without a shadow of doubt love the pure white of snow.

I know, that dreaded word people hate me uttering.

For me it remains a novelty and to be honest it always will.

I spent a long time never having experienced it and so when it comes either realistically or virtually, I start to get a little excited.

Today come with me to Aradia, a place already in Autumn and getting ready for winter. The sim is a beautiful place and it looks like the houses are there available for rentals if you wanted to check them out.

My thoughts in the snow

My thoughts in the snow

I read an interesting article earlier about whether or not workers should be allowed to nap at work.

I think the funniest part of that whole article is the fact that it’s deduced that it must be some kind of choice to nod off and it’s a big no no.

Well, in today’s lifestyle we live pretty much on the go constantly.

I remember years ago the average person obtained 8 hours sleep a night and woke refreshed. Less stress and worry.

These days the average person gets anywhere between 4-6 hours sleep uninterrupted as a guesstimate.

Times have changed. The world population spends more time working, more time spent in screen time of electronic devices and this certainly has a great impact.

Not only that various health issues as a result of modern lifestyles also reflect in how energised people are.

I remember years ago learning of how Japanese companies were investing in sleep pods whereby a power nap could be taken during the day for staff to energise.

I think that’s a pretty good practice and don’t understand why more companies don’t consider this approach.

A twenty minute nap is enough to recharge a person to then get on with the day.

A person is then more focused and alert and that in turn means far more productive.

I don’t think people ever stop to consider how long the working day actually is.

It’s not just the 8 hours you do, it’s the travel time to get there and then home again.

Mix in with that those who take work home to do, those who have children to also spend time with etc.

Then you realise that we are all only mere human beings and do need times to recharge during the day.

Do you feel you need a nap during the day? Do you get a full 8 hours sleep a night?
