Not Productive? That’s Okay!

It’s okay not to be productive, at least some of the time. I think in this day and age where we assume it’s so easy to be productive and it’s so easy for everyone to get in touch with us to tell us how they would like us to be productive, it’s easy to get caught up and feel like you can never just relax. I know. The Type-A personality inside me has a very hard time relaxing.

But I’ve been working to get better at relaxing. Funny that I even make relaxing work. So I’m writing this blog for you and me. It’s okay. It’s really okay to just take a few moments, even an hour, even a day and just relax.

Yesterday I saw a calendar with a quote: “Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.” I thought about it and realized that I have to let myself enjoy my wasted time more. I think I should have made that part of my challenge to get in the best shape of my life this year.

Maybe today is a good day to go on strike against Productivity.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.

    Yay – you! remember high school? when you did field hockey, drama, and remained on the honor roll? Once in a while you needed a day to unravel: read, watch inane television, breathe. Are you ever giving yourself that GIFT now? Hope so. 🙂
