Create a Do Nothing Day for Yourself [Self-Care Tip #3]
How would life change for you if every now and again you had a Do Nothing Day?
The other day a friend of mine called and as we talked I told her I was having a do nothing day. It was a day I got up. Had my coffee, read and journaled. Looked at my desk and went back to bed.
I wasn’t feeling down or lazy. But I felt like my brain was twisted up like a pretzel. Life seemed a jumble.
I didn't feel like doing any work.
I didn’t want to meditate. I just wanted to rest and not think about anything.
Hence my Do Nothing Day.
This day I didn’t answer email (minimal checking as well). Didn’t post on social media. Didn’t even worry about what I was missing out on.
I just did nothing.
I lost myself in a romance novel. Nothing juicy. I don’t like those. I like romance novels with a plot. Love the ones with a SEAL hero. And it should be based on Christian values. My preference.
But your Do Nothing Day could include a little bit of self care. If that's what doing nothing looks like for you. I've gotten a sauna. But you can pamper yourself with products that make you feel better inside and out.
So when you are feeling overwhelmed. When you’ve hit a wall.
Have yourself a Do Nothing Day. You'll feel better.
But it only works if you lose the guilt!
