You’re antsy. You want to get outside. You want to be productive. You want to be active. Sometimes you have to remember to just relax.
Dying to Be Productive
If you’re like me, you struggle to just stay still. You know there are things to do and actions to take. You want to be active and connect with people. You have projects you want to get done that you can’t do. You want to be more productive.
There’s something in us that drives us to be better, be active, and make things happen. When we are unable to do it, we feel like we’re dropping the ball or falling short.
You know, it’s funny: for so long we’ve worried about not doing enough or not being active enough, yet when it’s actually time for us to slow down, we can’t do it.
Maybe we should just relax.
It’s Okay to Slow Down
I’ve been considering all that’s happened lately. Now that the world is slowing down, we’re seeing pollution drop and the skies open up to wonderful new vistas. We’re seeing wildlife enjoying the world. We’re seeing improvements in our waterways.
Maybe it’s not that we’re always behind. Maybe it’s that we’re always trying to do too much. Maybe we need to slow down. Maybe our high drive is counter-productive. Maybe we accomplish a lot but then have to undo a lot of damage we cause from overproducing.
Maybe we need to just relax.
It’s Okay to Relax
You don’t have to be running in high gear all the time. It’s okay to relax. It’s okay for you to not be running at 110 percent all the time. It’s okay to take a break.
It’s okay to have fun. I’ve given all kinds of ideas on exciting projects you can do when you’re stuck inside, fun activities to do indoors, and rainy day activities. If you’re bored and looking for something to do, I’ve got you covered.
But it’s okay to take it easy. Just relax. It won’t kill you. If you’re like me, you may be worried about how you can succeed when you’re not constantly going. You have to keep in mind that you are infinitely creative. You can find solutions if you just let yourself, and sometimes the best way to come up with great ideas is to just let go, relax, and let the ideas hit you when you least expect them.
It’s okay. You can do it. Just Relax.
