The Art of Doing Nothing
In Italian, there is a saying of “La Dolce Far Niente,” which means- the sweetness of doing nothing. The beauty of this, is actually literally doing nothing : no facebook, no phones, no twitter, no running errands, no checking emails, nothing. Absolultely nothing.
Let your mind rest and relax, even for just 5 minutes, and not feeling guilty about it. You may think the Spanish and Italians are not making the most of their time by having a siesta every afternoon, but by taking a nap, it is actually healthy for your mind and health. So on this Sunday, and hopefully every Sunday from now on, allow yourself to have some time to do nothing, and taste the sweetness of that.
