TSA#36 – Do Very Little

Jul 23, 2012 by

This one is really simple and yet the hardest for me to actually do.  I have a hard time slowing down or doing nothing at all.  I feel intense feelings of guilt for all the projects and chores and things I should be doing.  So I rarely just slow down or do nothing.  Except when I’m hurt.

That may be the universe telling me to slow down.

I threw out my back on Saturday doing nothing.  Just like the cartoons, I bent over to pick something up and it all went downhill from there.  So I spent the weekend horizontal and not moving around a lot.  That said we still all went to the beach, I just didn’t do much but lay on a blanket.  Sunday was spent in a movie marathon watching whatever we had around the house to watch.   It was fun.  It was kind of nice not doing anything.  I still get a little restless, but I have to force myself to slow down and enjoy the calm.  I’m also very fortunate to have friends and family who will help me while I am non-functional.

So summer is here.  The weather is nice.  Take a day off and do nothing…or do very little.  Head down to the beach or park and just have a fun lazy day with your family or friends.  Don’t pack every second of every day with things to do.  Force yourself to take some downtime and just rest.

Your Truly Simple Action for this week is to do very little.  Enjoy…
