I sometimes feel overwhelmed by how short our life is compared to all the things one can do.
Doing sports, I take pleasure from the feeling of being in the moment, and it also provides satisfaction of having done something healthy afterwards. I prefer team sports like volleyball, but also enjoy the one-on-one competition of tennis - I play about once or twice a month with a colleague.
When I'm around my home town, my friends and I often visit our to-go bar on the week-end. Alternatively, we enjoy watching something new in the english theater or trying to wrap our heads around the rules of a new board game.
I like meditation. When stressed, it helps me put things into perspective, and when calm, its just some enjoyable leisure time. Meditating in small groups is one of the most potent experiences I had, and I like to share this kind of experience with others, if they are so inclined.
I also like visiting new places. If I can combine it with sports, its the best of both worlds. This summer, I went trekking to Thuringia with my best friend. He's a biologist, and it was an amazing tour. We saw some really rare plants, and a deer crossed our path only two meters ahead of us. It was a beautiful moment.
