Our lives are hectic, full of activity and full of stress. There’s always a bell to be answered, a cupboard that needs cleaning, a bus that needs catching, a presentation that needs to be finished and even a movie that needs to be seen or a book that needs to be returned. With electricity and gadgets making our lives easier, we’ve also found them becoming busier. We can pack in so much more in a day infact we can pack in so much more in an hour – you can listen to music, read a book, wash your clothes and have a cake baking in the oven all at the same time. But everyone needs a break and there should be one day in a year dedicated to doing NOTHING but vegetate. Especially when it’s hot and balmy and you’re home alone.
Yesterday I did nothing but lie in bed all day watching cheesy movies on Romedy NOW, back to back, snoozing during the ads, calling in my lunch and dinner, answering the phone only if it rang and basically spent the whole day just lost in my own self, experiencing the freedom of doing nothing.
