In the past few weeks I’ve started taking baths in the evening before going to sleep. While I’m bathing, I like to read World War Z, a novel filled with vignettes about what it was like to survive the zombie apocalypse. It’s not for the faint of heart.
Why on earth would I taint my relaxing bath time with fatalist zombie horror?
It’s funny, but reading about zombies overtaking the earth and the collapse of society as a whole brings the rest of life fully into perspective. When surveying the damage and destruction of the zombie apocalypse from the comfort of a warm bath, the stresses of my every day life – work, adult responsibilities, information overload – seem trivial and unimportant. It’s a truly fantastic way to end the day.
You heard it hear first: zombies are a great cure for stress and bring perspective to your life! You’re welcome.
