Faux (French term for fake) + Faux Pas (A violation of accepted social norms) + Pause = Faux Pauz

Fake Pause? Open to your interpretation, naturally.

Among others, some interpretations of Faux Pauz include:
1. A fake pause, meaning your life still goes on while you hang around/pause.
2. Work is never-ending, thus a faux pauz (or a fake pause) in life would assist one in unwinding and savouring the little things.
3. Faux Pauz militates against the convention that life is a rat race. Life is more than that.
Live on the edge, militate against norms, live your life faux pauz style.
