Do Nothing Days

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 8:31 AM
I'm a firm believer that we moms need a do nothing day every once in a while. With our busy schedules and demands on us they don't often just happen. We have to make them happen and be okay with leaving things til tomorrow (once in a while, not always.)

I had one of those days yesterday. I didn't plan it, it just happened. I had a to do list, but interrupted sleep was catching up with me (and I had a new fiction book to read.) So, I had a do nothing day. Well...not exactly NOTHING. I fed my kids three meals, put steaks on marinade and separated hamburger to put in the freezer. I checked in with FaceBook, email, and Twitter. I even sent out a few emails. But overall, I rested (in search of a nap most of the day until I finally got one around 2:30) and read most of the day. Although nothing on my to do list got done, I feel more refreshed and ready to tackle things today.

Ironic that I'm in the middle of writing my chapter on health, and just earlier this week wrote the section on resting our minds. Ironic, or actually putting into practice what I believe?
