I spent an hour the other day sitting in the kitchen with a cup of tea and staring out the window. I had no book, and no specific concepts tossing around in my brain. It was pure and total relaxation. Afterwards I felt energized and inspired just from giving my mind a break from the constant, high pressure demands that it usually shoulders.
Our minds are constantly on. We lay around (resting our bodies) but we’re watching television, surfing the internet, texting, talking to people, and thinking rapidly. How often does our brain get a break? Not very often.
Sometime today, be still. Sit down and allow your body AND mind to relax. You’ll be amazed at the calmness and rest you will experience.
