Do Nothing


This might sound silly, but it's really a simple treat: Stop. Breathe. Repeat. Make your few moments of down time really count by doing a whole lot of nothing. Don't watch TV. Don't look at your smart phone. Don't check on your napping toddler every two seconds. And don't feel guilty! Just take a few to gaze out the window, or sit and do some gentle stretching on the floor. It's not a waste of time. A few minutes of quiet time can save you several minutes of frustration or forgetfulness when you tackle your to-do list later on.
