I am a person who never gets rest, is always in motion, if not physically, then mentally, constantly thinking about something, solving problems, sometimes creating them first and then trying to solve, haha.
Do you know this phrase that Americans use to say – “we work hard and we play hard”? If you work hard, you must get a good rest, otherwise you’ll get something less pleasant, like a heart attack or a depression.
The second part of the phrase is something I have never been good at. When I am not working, I am engaged in many other activities such as organizing something, implementing new ideas, creating websites, writing this blog, etc.

From time to time I’m asking myself the same question again – what is happiness and how can I feel it more often?
Since childhood I felt different from the other kids. I started reading at the age of 4 and loved it so much that it stayed one of my most favorite activities for years.
I can’t say I spent little time with friends back in my childhood, but I know that at a certain age I realized that actually the majority of my peers made me feel bored or stressed.
