The Importance of Doing Absolutely Nothing

Most of us lead busy, scheduled and task-filled lives; whether we’re juggling work, kids, relationships, besties and so on. But the majority of women do not know how to relax. I just learned what that actually meant this year and I’m glad that I did. In the States, our idea of relaxation is going out to get hammered and waking up with a mean hangover and dehydrated, dull skin. Yuck. That is not relaxing, it can be fun, but not peaceful and relaxing. Sometimes its totally okay to do next to nothing and unplug from the world & reboot. It’s actually really important that we do from time to time.

How do you do nothing? Easy.

Set the airplane mode on your phone. Make some tea. Read a book, not on a Nook or iPad, or even a magazine. Spend the day in your pajamas. Find a recipe & throw down in the kitchen. Have sex. Have a low-key Girl’s Night. Build a pillow fort with your kids. Start learning a new language. Write down some personal goals. Take a nap with your boo. Play dress-up in your closet. Watch your favorite movies all day. Play Solitaire. Take a bubble bath. Re-arrange your furniture. Treat yourself to a DIY mani-pedi-facial. Eat chocolate.

There are several ways to detox & take a break from the world.

Embrace it, because your well-being is worth it <3.
