Doing nothing is the hardest thing when it’s not a regular practice!
I’m practicing 5-10 minutes of doing nothing every day at the moment.
That’s not reading, not having a coffee or water, not knitting. It’s not looking at my phone or TV. It’s doing no-thing!!
I sit on my back step and watch the trees, lie in my back yard and watch the clouds. I might sit on my lounge and just look at the pictures on the walls. Or sit at my dining table, watching the birds outside.
I fidget a bit, trying to slow my thoughts. (I’m not meditating at this time either.)
It’s an interesting exercise and I’m enjoying it.
Do you ever just stop and do nothing?
