Our schedules are filled to the brim

Our schedules are filled to the brim

When we look at our calendar, we often notice that every hour is filled with something - almost as if we don't like being left alone with ourselves with nothing to do.

But our inner lives are in great need of attention. It takes the absence of an agenda to really learn about ourselves. It takes quiet and time.

A "do nothing" day

Once a week, clear your calendar, remove any social obligations, turn off your notifications, let your projects sit idle and make space for what could happen.

You matter without the stuff, the outside approval, without the career, or the friends. It is worth having a "do nothing" day just to be you.

Tips for a “do nothing” day

  • Set the day aside and make it known to people close to you so that they can support you.
  • Don't stress about it. Wake up, and resist the urge to do stuff.
  • Pay attention. Notice when you have an urge to check your phone or make a call. Depriving yourself of everyday stuff will reveal what you really need.
  • Listen to your heart. Don't just do something, Wait. Ask yourself if this is something you really want to do?
  • Spend some time in silence.
