People take breaks in many ways. Especially when you have a big decision to make, sometimes people will need to take a step back and really think. Some like to take a long drive or a walk around the neighborhood. Aaron Rodgers is planning to black out for 4 days straight. Sounds like a hefty bender to me. However, Rodgers isn’t blacking out like that. He’s planning on sitting in complete darkness for about 4 days to contemplate how his future will pan out. Whether that means to be traded or to keep playing football. Aaron Rodgers has been known as a very spiritual guy. I mean he did rock a man bun for a while so if that doesn’t say anything about him I don’t know what will.
He has also been on the Joe Rogan podcast and has talked about being on opioids during some of his games. Rogan has been known to talk about a sensory deprivation tank and its benefits. This seems to be something very similar when talking about the psychological benefits.
This decision to take this dark retreat was extremely interesting. He said that he has had friends who have done this before and it makes you wonder if these are friends who live under a bridge or if they are fellow teammates. Regardless, this isn’t necessarily something out of the blue that Rodgers would say. But, I hope Rodgers makes the best decision for himself afterward.
