The Art of Doing Nothing

Guys. This month has been madness. I have been out of town for the past four weekends. I know that might not sound that crazy (or maybe it does, idk) but I was thinking the other day… I haven’t seen my apartment in the daylight for 4 weeks straight. Not even one day. I’ve been so freakin busy.

I don’t know about you, but my time at home is my time to re-charge. I feel like I’ve been on Low Power Mode with my battery at 20% for way too long.

So while everyone was out of town, at the beach, at the lake, etc. I spent this weekend at home. And it was amazing.

To me, there is so much power in just doing nothing. And doing nothing isn’t always as easy as it sounds. I honestly blame a lot of this on social media. Facebook, Insta, and Pinterest make us feel like we’re the only ones not doing something┬átotally amazing and gives us #FOMO.

But I literally needed a vacation from my vacations.

And this isn’t to say I didn’t have an amazing time these past few weekends. I’ve made some amazing memories and saw new places and spent time with some of my favorite people in the world. But I just needed like one day to myself.

To think. Read. Nap. Scroll through my Facebook feed until my arm is sore from holding up my phone. Just some me time. I feel like my definition of boredom is so different from everybody else’s. I’m more likely to feel bored when I’m out at a bar than if I’m laying on the couch under a blanket with nothing to do. That’s literally what I look forward to doing LOL. Idk. That’s just me. Am I officially old?

So tell me… Do you ever feel this way? Or do you feel like your energy source is staying constantly busy? Tell me everything! I will be back Thursday with an exciting milestone!! You won’t want to miss it. Xo.
