32158: D.Phil., Masonry and Happiness

online resource
posted on 2023-12-08, 20:29 authored by Lockdown2020 and Beyond Project

I came back to my hometown in Southern France in mid-March to conduct research for my thesis while helping out a local NGO build a ranch. Self-isolation is the norm back here and I have met more horses than humans in the last 3 months. Alternating days of intense home studying with days at the ranch laying bricks, horse-riding and cutting grass makes me happy. Isolation is a gift when it can be used to reconnect with nature, the soul and the body. I look forward at some point to go back to Oxford, though, to re-embrace with the research community!

In a world where time keeps accelerating, dedicating some of it to physical work and our relation with nature can help us balance our body, emotions and mind for better health and performance!
