We should have a proper balance between our different intellects (academic, aesthetic, mechanical, kinesthetic….) It should be a conscious effort from our part to hit the optimal equilibrium.
If you are academically engaged more, try doing some mechanical stuff at home, and vice versa. Take a little time to appreciate beauty, nature, concepts and all the hell of things you primarily thought never belongs to your bend of mind. It will balance you.
This blog is my way of balancing act.
