When life gets overwhelming sometimes it’s good to take a step back. Take a break. And have a do-nothing day.
How would life change for you if every now and then you had a Do-Nothing Day? That’s right. Just do nothing!
While talking to my friend the other day I told her I was having a do-nothing day. It was the day I got up. Had my coffee. Read my Bible and wrote in my journal. 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 emails (minimal checking as well). Didn’t post on social media. Or even worry about what I was missing out on.
I just did nothing.
I lose 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. Sometimes my Do Nothing Day includes a trip to the spa, sauna, or steam room. But you can stay home and pamper yourself with products that make you feel better inside and out. Light a candle. Soak in the tub. Whatever you want.
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!
