The Value of Doing Nothing

You do it best, when you do nothing at all.

Often, we find ourselves filling all the gaps of our time with anything and everything. Even with a Monday through Friday work schedule, we still make plans to do things all weekend long. Whether it’s going out with friends or even staying home and cleaning up, our “down time” is seemingly always consumed with something.

Over the past few years, I’ve found myself scheduling time to do nothing…and I mean exactly that. I always have plenty of projects to work on or things to improve/optimize, so I find myself struggling with lending time to idle hands. With that in mind, I force myself to make time for sitting and enjoying music or unplugging from technology and just walking around. It’s amazing what little “resets” here and there can do to help you focus on your day-to-day tasks.
