Many of us live busy, distracted lives, and we don’t take the time to just be still. There is so much restoration that comes from setting aside lists, errands, and things we “have to do”, and allowing ourselves to just do nothing. Even if it is just for 5 or 10 minutes, when we break the current of energy that binds us to obligations, it frees that energy up for us to use to recharge ourselves.

Today I give myself permission to be still and enjoy unstructured time. I am refreshed and rejuvenated when I sit in stillness, and I feel so much better!
