Do Nothing. . .
Finding time to do nothing is an easy and incredibly powerful way to lower your stress, increase your happiness, and enjoy your life. We simply need to make some time for nothing – 🙂
When you take a break from your hectic everyday life, you listen to your inner voice instead of drowning it in external noise. It’s a great way to let your subconscious present you with valuable ideas — if only there wasn’t a simple yet significant problem.
In today’s world, you’re accessible almost 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You never do nothing — there’s always something, whether you listen to music or a podcast, answer messages, or have a news stream in the background. It’s quite paradoxical in a world of almost endless possibilities, but a real nothing is hard to come by.
As a result, you take time to recharge your phone’s battery but not your mind’s. Your relax time becomes another form of activity, whether it’s with people or in front of a screen or a book. A few years ago, I decided to put an end to the constant mental work and give myself an occasional yet consistent break. I block an hour on my calendar and dedicated it to one thing only: Nothing.
Doing nothing from time to time will increase your creativity and productivity. But what’s even more important is something else altogether. When you do nothing, you connect with your inner self and the core of who you are. You take the time to be you — just you. And that’s someone you should be more often.
