When It’s Time To Do Nothing

Stop thinking! Stop doing and take a break!

Interesting concept and for some incredibly hard to do.

Are you the type that while sitting and watching a movie or television, or while waiting for an appointment is also answering emails, messaging, checking social media? Or are your thoughts on an expedition to somewhere land?

Have you ever started one thing, stopped part way and began another then tried to remember what you were initially doing?

Have you ever felt the need to rest, but you chose to ignore it?

I have done every one of these, and I’m hoping there are some heads nodding. If not, you may not want to read any further.

Sometimes we are receiving nudges just to do NOTHING!

Stop thinking! Stop doing and take a break!

It’s okay, give it a go what are a few moments, an hour or a day.

I call it for me, getting out of my way. Let’s face it, we all have to deal with challenges, schedules and so on and often our greatest block is ourselves, and especially that opponent within the mind that wants to control. 


What’s the best way to clear a block?

Step back, take a breath, ground and become present.

Then, get out of the stories, unplug and reconnect with you. I’m talking about realigning with your innate wisdom for when in alignment everything flows; creativity, happiness, simplicity, clarity, direction, love .. I’m sure you know what I mean because you’ve been there.

In this article my message is to be aware of the opponent that comes from the head in its words of should’s and the what if’s that polarise and distract.

Allow space, become an empty vessel, you DON’T HAVE to DO ANYTHING just enjoy the moment.

Taking time to do nothing is an investment, and you’d be surprised how the ideas and clarity drift in when you create the space. You’ll have a renewed energy that is focused and meaningful, with purpose and passion ignited.

Come on give yourself permission your worth it!

I can slow down for a brief time with a coffee or take time out for me, if I can. But I feel guilty or lazy if I’m not active at doing something. I feel guilty if I fall asleep, sleep too long, sit too long or do nothing. Then, sometimes I have plenty to do, but don’t want to do it. I can slow down, but I can’t relax, and I feel bored or bad about doing nothing. I tend to listen to my body, what it’s telling me, and ignore it or feel bad about being tired. I get depressed or anxious. I don’t have nice people around me, so I’m always ready to go if I have to. I sleep with my clothes on, so I’m not fully relaxed. Sometimes I have no choice but to rest for a bit, but I don’t feel good about doing it. I feel that I’m still in my busy mode, even though I’m just myself. Silly me. Good article. I love those questions/articles, quotes and tips. They do help and moreso than we realise at times, until we have to think about them. They re-affirm what we are doing right and correct us if we are wrong.

I am in full panic mode.i realize now it’s gonna be okay.i have to have faith I will find something soon and I deserve a good chance of a great new outcome . I am still gonna struggle , but I am gonna give it to god and he will guide me in the proper decision I will come to all the anexity will do nothing but cripple my decision making. I know I will be okay. It takes time.

You can take a break. And do nothing. So you can. Re focus.
