We usually keep our minds so busy. Constantly feeding ourselves with information without letting it properly sink in and processing it. We fill gaps with noise, scrolling through social media, reading an article, listening to a podcast etc… (also guilty as charged!). It is all good, but in moderation. Whatever happened to quiet time? Time for silent reflection?
Did you know that our minds are more creative when at rest? I think it is time for us do ourselves a favour and to take sometime to pull back and cherish the moment. The Italians said it best: “La Dolce Far Niente” – the sweetness of doing nothing!
If you are feeling like you are in a slump, allow your mind to wander.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, seek quiet moments.
If you are feeling like life is just passing you by, stop and take time to reflect.
I personally have decided to take walks every now and then – without earphones clogging my ears or thoughts clogging my brain. Instead just feeling the wind blow through my hair and enjoying the sun glow on my face. Maybe this is exactly what you need to feel refreshed and to get those creative juices flowing?
Remember, as much as it is important to prepare for tomorrow, it is more important to live today.
