When is the last time you actually did take a break?
How are you? Seriously!
When did you last just stop and do nothing?
No TV, no scrolling, no netflix, no electronic device, no chores, no checking off one more thing on the to do list (that never ending script), no making a meal or a drink, no yoga, no go for a walk, no making plans, no figuring something out, no judging yourself, no NOTHING?
Stopping to do no-thing? Really stop and take a moment of nothingness, how about 10 moments of nothingness?
Does that seem impossible?
The thought unimaginable?
If so, why? Is your mind insisting that you do something?
Even if it's doing something you like?
Either way, however you feel at this moment.
Could you stop and do no-thing for 10 whole moments/minutes?
Would you stop and do no-thing for 10 whole moments/minutes?
I invite you to do so now.
Close your eyes
Let all the thoughts go by and do nothing, in this moment.
Stop and do nothing.
