Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 312 – Blank

“Doing nothing often leads to the very best of something.”

Winnie The Pooh

Thanks, Spidey for finding a fabulous quote from my favourite stuffed bear!

This thought realy resonates with me, for some reason, right now.

I’m at a time in my life, where doing nothing doesn’t even feel like an option. I’ve got a book to write, a class to teach, teenagers to feed (constantly), a house to sell… It doesn’t leave much time for doing nothing.

But, then again, my best ideas often come when I take a step back, sit down, and let life go by for a little while, without me feelinng pressure.

A good book, a comfy sofa and a cup of tea, is my idea of doing nothing. Yes, even that is productive, as I get to read another book from my extensive TBR list, but it’s still a time I can switch off from reality, refresh, and come back stronger than before.

I have been trying to do one of these ‘nothing’ days regularly, recently, so Sunday is my day to switch off in the afternoon, unless anything urgent comes up, snuggle up with my book, and quite often, Sonu Singh by my side, and lose myself into a fictional world.

And it does refresh me. Those few hours give me a chance to stop living my crazy life, and chill. I also get a chance to reflect upon what I have going on in my life with a much fresher mind, too.

I’m definitely looking forward to an afternoon like that, today, because I am pretty sure I’ll be stressing, next week, as we get ready to open the classroom doors physically, to the whole class again.

So, what’s your take on doing nothing?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps, and try to get an hour of nothing in there, somewhere.

    Thinking of you and reopening school, Ritu. Yes, those ‘do nothing’ days are so important!

    Oh, yes! Sunday is that for me too (after church, anyway). I had the nicest afternoon, swapping out my boys’ too-small clothes in their closet for new hand-me-downs (thank goodness for hand-me-downs!). Then, I watched a couple YouTube videos with my favorite vocal coach, practiced a little soprano action, and ate dinner I didn’t have to cook! Lovely. I’ll be looking forward to your take on your Sunday read–you always get through so many books!

    I love it and I don’t feel guilty when I can experience it (doing nothing). Although I have been working from home, between the pressures of my full-time job, attempting to finish a book, learning French and working around the house, etc., I never really feel rested so those few times that I get to chill out, I try to.

    Doing nothing is a requirement of a satisfying life…not al the time, but it is important to carve out time to recharge and regenerate.

    So, what’s your take on doing nothing?

    I’ll tell you: it’s avoiding the, what for me is almost irresistible, impulse to issue typo alerts, such as, for instance:

    This thought realyreally resonataesresonates with me […] and let life go by for a little while, without me feelinngfeeling pressure […] unless anything urgent comes up. snuggleSnuggle up with my book […] stop living my crazy life, and chill.Ichill. I also get a chance to reflect […]

    … oops. Sorry! 🙂

    Doing nothing is a pleasure to be embraced, but we tend to avoid it.

    That’s true. Sometimes being inactive is the more productive action. On one hand, for ourselves to let go of the need to keep control over everything and on the other hand to let things unfold.

    My doing nothing is swinging out back with Annie watching the sun set.

    Doing nothing is of utmost importance. The mind learns things of great value when it’s allowed to be still and wander. I hope you get some time for such pursuits 😊
