I take Sundays seriously at my house. It’s my chance to do everything that I’ve been wanting to do all week, which is eat good food, read books, and watch television.
Yesterday, I was bouncing in between all three of these activities when I realized I wasn’t hungry anymore, I didn’t want to read, and I didn’t want to watch TV.
So what was I supposed to do? I played on my phone for awhile but even that got boring. I sat in silence for a few minutes and then a calm washed over me. In my haste to do something, I had forgotten how to just be.
If time allows, if your family allows, and if you allow, try to just be for 15-20 minutes a day.
It does wonders for the mind and body. And remember, we are human BEings not human doings.
(I know, cheesy, but I’m right.)
