I for one get really excited when I see that nothing is planned for the weekend. It means that I can catch up on my at home work and todos. But this isn’t the nothing that I’m talking about. I literally mean choose nothing. No work, no chores, no events, and nothing that you feel you have to do.
This version of nothing is very difficult for us in the era of electronics and constant doing. But it is important for our body and brain to do this occasionally so re can rest and rejuvenate. Similar to meditation, It doesn’t have to be to be all day. It can be a few minutes here and there. Embrace the nothing and don’t feel obligated to fill every part of your day, week, month, or year.
