What do you do 'immediately' after a long stressful day at work? One is lucky if their work environment provides outlet to de-stress, such as mini-gym, cafeteria or small garden with beautiful flowers and plants. At my work place we have two options to de-stress ourselves, one is a mini-gym and another is to relax by the beautiful fish pond with Japanese Koi . Fish pond is not just an ideal part of landscape designing, but also provides therapeutic impact on us.
While being in the gym helps me to sweat and reduce the mounting stress from the day’s work, my truest relaxation happens only when I spend time by the fish pond. The graceful motion of the fish, the gentle dance of the green plants around the fish pond and the soothing sound of the running water induces me into an experience so inexplicable. Though momentary, this break from the mundane life, spurs the energy for another day.
This fish pond provides an environment so conducive for me to relax my mind. It gives me immense bliss. In the quietude that dawn after working hours, I let the mind swim together with the fish while at the same time allowing my eyes to absorb the peaceful colors surrounding the pond. And, that moment in solitude is one of my best experiences, yet the hardest to express with words.
