Closely tied to stress is how often you take downtime. On a recent long trip by air I had to change planes in Toronto. After clearing customs, and the endless lines at security, I arrived at my gate early and the flight was delayed. I thought should I crack open the lap top and get some work done or just cool down? Next to the gate was a booth offering manicures. I'd never indulged in one before, but I thought but what the heck I'll try something new! Not only did my garden traumatized nails need some work, but the event was unbelievably relaxing and it just took 20 minutes.
Are there other travelers, particularly men who have enjoyed such a short, but wonderful leisure activity?
