Take It Easy

When was the last time you daydreamed? Or sat back, closed your eyes and really listened to some beautiful music? Or drifted in thought at the artwork on your wall?

Turn off the TV and notice the sounds of silence. What do you hear? Traffic outside? Voices? Chirping? A neighbor’s television? We so often exist in sensory overload that we become unaware just how over-stimulated we are. Our bodies and minds need a rest from the constant stream of sights and sounds. So become still, find some quiet and appreciate it.

Self-care includes time to veg, sleep, be lazy and “unproductive” sometimes. Unplug and unwind. Light a candle and get comfortable. We all need it. Take this time to take it easy sometimes. You’ll be glad you did.
