Besides some of the already given answers, as an ifr-only simmer, I find it very relaxing to sit back and just enjoy the views and monitor the various systems. It is also a perfect match to a glass of wine.

Much better than therapy imho...

That, right there.

I agree, it is an escape and one that doesn't leave you with a hangover.
