The Hammock at Work
The Hammock is at Work. The owner is not. In-between trips for clients, the Tuktuk drivers in Phnom Penh put out their hammocks and take a rest. The car drivers do this as well. They all have their hammocks at the back of the car. The clients can take time in their meeting or their shopping. No problem. Our drivers are doing just the right thing to do for their health and sanity.
Taking time out in-between activities at work may prove to be more productive. As the mind gets rested, the capacity to think out ideas and solutions improve. In most of Southeast Asia, it is not unusual for office employees, in the middle of the day, to put their heads down on their desk, if they're lucky to have a makeshift cot in one corner of the office, to have a nap. They have their mid break and they use it well.
Maybe, this is an option to add to our current lifestyle. What do you think?
