Over at Daily Speculations, Rod Frey comments that:
“The Chair (Niederhoffer) and some of his colleagues have their racquets to help relieve stress; some others play golf or go biking. I play hockey.”
I think it’s healthy to have something else to ‘get lost’ in other than the markets, which can be quite unforgiving. My escapes are:
- Tennis and squash
- The gym
- Sitting in the garden with a good book, surrounded by nature
Escapes don’t strictly have to be activities. They don’t even have to be healthy. For example, when I used to work in the City, one of my escapes was a cheese and bean wrap (sandwich), that I used to eat on the train on the way home.
What are your escapes?
