I feel that I am wasting my time if I am not doing anything. If not work, it is cooking, cleaning, reading , writing - something that keeps me occupied.
Today, after a long time, I did nothing for a few hours. Purposely kept everything away. And I was genuinely surprised to see that I felt better.
I went ahead and did more than my fair of work in the next few hours, but that's not the point.
The daily rush to get ahead makes sure I don't get enough time to, as the expression puts it, 'stop and smell the flowers'.
After today's experience, I'm going to do this often.
