Thou shall play games

One of my favorite times of the day minus quitting time is noon when I go to lunch with my coworkers.  It is dead smack in the middle of my work day and a nice reminder that I only have a few more hours until I am free.  All kidding aside though my lunch break allows me to unwind and prepare myself to get through the rest of the work day.  Every day at lunch I play a video game on my Nintendo DS or watch TV through my mobile phone.  Even though I know many people my age no longer play video games for me it is a good escape and safety net. Anyone who knows about Autism will tell you that socialization is a stressful task that takes a lot of patience. Since  my job forces me to socialize all day I need that 45 minute break where i can go back into my own little world and have complete silence.   I think my allowing myself down time during lunch plays a big role in my keeping down a full time job.  Bottom line, don’t be embarrassed if you bring a video game or a book of crosswords to work with you.  It may seem silly to others but in the long run your doing yourself a favor.

Thank you for reading!
