The annoying sound of the alarm wakes you up. You snooze it. The final alarm rings (again!) and you are up. A typical ‘day’ begins. Morning chores, gym, cook, go to work, spend time with family and friends, drive, socialise, eat, read, sleep. This is pretty much every individual’s routine (not necessarily in the same order!).
We all have numerous tasks lined up for the day. And for some of us, we have it planned for a couple of days altogether. We all need a break from ‘the routine’! How do we unwind? Some of us love to party, some of us love the spa. Some like to spend a quiet weekend at home with family and some love to travel. Though I love all of this, my favourite way to unwind is to plan a ‘do-nothing-at-all’ day once in a while.
As it suggests, I do nothing at all. Really nothing! I wake up, eat, relax, keep my laptop and phone away, sleep, think good thoughts and simply laze around. It’s my way to relax the body, the mind, the thoughts and the soul. Believe me, it’s refreshing!
A ‘Do-nothing-at-all’ day will help you reinvent yourself and help discover new avenues. It will let you think clearly and positively. And, the next morning, you will find yourself waking up with a smile to the same annoying alarm.
I would suggest all my readers to try out a ‘do-nothing-at-all’ day. If you have an extremely hectic schedule and cannot afford to give it a day, try it for a few hours. But, do give it a shot! Of course, if done too frequently, it will not have the same effect. But, plan it once in a while and see yourself get re-energised, happier and more productive.
Try it out for yourself and share your experiences in the comments section. I would love to read them :).
Lots of love and glee,
