For most of us, there are not enough hours in a day or days in a week to do all the things we want—or believe—we have to do. Stress builds as we push harder and harder to fit in more. The more we do, the more we think we should do.
And when we find a few extra minutes, we regard them as time to fill, instead of opportunities to just be—to stop rushing and catch our breath, to exist in the present moment instead of running toward some future one.
On November 2nd stop long enough celebrate “Zero-Tasking Day.” Take those 60 minutes gained when you set your clocks back an hour (marking the end of Daylight Savings Time) and take a breath, relax and rejuvenate.
While the idea of choosing to do nothing for a set period of time may be foreign to you, it’s absolutely essential for the health of your mind and body.
