I am sure there are many people who are like me and try to pack lots of stuff into each weekend. We work Monday to Friday and have little time to do all those domestic chores that are required. It means a busy couple of days keeping on top of home life and trying to fit in some of the things that make me happy.
There is little time within that for rest and relaxation. One time I have to slow down is when I go to the hairdresser. There is not much you can do as you have to wait for an hour or possibly longer. It Is time you just have to sit.
Despite the frustration I sat for an hour me a half today and chatted, contemplated life and reduced my stress levels. I wondered why I didn’t do it when I wasn’t at the hairdressers. After all making a bit of time to meditate or unwind is something we all know we should do. It helps our physical and mental wellbeing.
Why then do we need to force ourselves to find a bit of time to relax? I have blogged before about our desire to be busy, busy, busy. The weekend is our time to do what we enjoy so why should we spend time doing nothing?
Today I had the pleasure and frustration of some time in the salon perhaps next weekend I will find that time to simply do nothing.
