Busy Doing Nothing

I have been feeling like I haven’t done much today, but in reflection I have achieved a few things.

I contacted my doctor about an issue I need to deal with.

I’ve enjoyed reading a novel.

I started tidying up in the garden.

I went for a couple of walks and clocked up nearly 7000 steps.

When I go slowly, I feel guilt that I’m wasting the day or being lazy, but perhaps these slower days are what’s needed to balance out the busyness of life.

I haven’t practised mindfulness for a while and I think that it would be useful to return to it. Giving myself permission to stop and just ‘be’ isn’t a bad thing. Self care comes in many forms, including the form of nothing at all.
