Do nothing

I saw this image this morning on Facebook, and knew I had to share it!

The world was loud enough BEFORE the pandemic. The extra noise created by Covid and vaccines and and and has become so overwhelming for so many!

When I saw this picture, I smiled because that is me next to that tree, except I am a grownup (apparently) and a woman πŸ˜›

This image is also how I feel when I am next to my 30 kilogram male rescue dog, and the little 6 kilogram rescue dog is cuddled up next to him πŸ˜‰

So this is a friendly reminder that sometimes the something we need to do is absolutely nothing.

Don’t scroll on social media, don’t read your texts or even respond (in fact, switch that cellphone off πŸ˜› ), don’t even turn on your television/computer/laptop.

Just be.

Switch off, and do absolutely nothing. Even if just for ten minutes a day!

They say that making a conscious effort to do this every day not only leads to a calmer and more peaceful ‘you’ but it can also make your brain work better and increase your efficiency!

For me? It’s about my love for trees and my ‘furbabies’ πŸ˜› Seriously though, I don’t know about you, but with all the noise, I sure do love some peace!

Have a great weekend, everyone πŸ˜‰

  1. Hey love. πŸ‘‹ I’m exactly the same. My favourite thing to do is drive into a national park, about 15 minutes from where I live, find a quiet spot and just sit. No noise, no people, just natural quiet 😊

  2. Hi Meg,
    I have to admit that the thought of doing nothing seems really attractive although I often find it difficult to sit still for too long, I have recently started switching my phone off in the late evenings, and in the early hours of the morning if I am awake I will do very little although TV is often my go too for company in those early hours.
    I have a thought though for next year when things start to get back to some kind of new normal, there is an island off the coast of Pembrokeshire, Caldey Island, the island has a monastery on it and during the season have spiritual retreats and I would certainly like to experience this.

    I hope that everything is going well with you and that you experience peace and quiet in your life and over this weekend.
