As we head into the holiday weekend it looks like I will be having some much needed time off where I will be doing nothing. It is very rare that I spend a day and do nothing.
I wonder why?
Sure there is a lot to do each day: a lot of it things I am passionate about, therapy, writing, teaching, yoga, but occasionally I need a do nothing kind of day.
On those days I like to sleep, listen to the sounds of the house, watch the dog sleep, and in general not push myself. I often find in that space that I become more aware of my being and my body since I give them a little more space to speak to me on those days.
And I never know when they are going to come along. That’s the fun part. Like getting a second prize in a box of Cracker Jack. They always make me smile!
So keep you eyes open and when a do nothing day comes along, don't try to fill it up, just do nothing
