Stress Management: Power of Doing Nothing
"Sometimes sitting and doing nothing is the best something that you can do" - Karen Salmansohn
In my last blog, I spoke on the power of deep breathing and how that is a strategy for stress management and feeling the power of relaxation and repose, will have so many health benefits. Today, I want to speak on one of the best stress management techniques and one of my own personal favourites, which is the power of DOING NOTHING!
Honestly, in this hustle bustle culture that we live in, everybody is trying to do a thousand things at the same time, but we only have 24 hours in the day. All these demands that we have to do throughout the day from different areas of our life, such as work, home, relationships, etc. all are consuming our health holistically and it's important to relax and unplug in order to recharge. Let me go into some personal experience in order to give some context.
Being an entrepreneur is definitely taxing in the beginning because you have to be extremely scrappy doing multiple tasks at the same time in order get your business up and going. For example, I have to create a sales proposal in order to get my first sale, while taking entrepreneurial courses at the school for my Leap Program, as well as have regular meetings with my graphic designers, therefore there is a high risk of being able to burnout. But due to the simplistic fact that I take time to be able to unplug, repose, and rejuvenate enables me to have a more reflective mindset and make connections to various information that I have received which I wouldn't normally make connections too. That's the power of rest, since when you repose you are using an area of the brain called the default network which makes you more introspective and see things from within. Here are some more health benefits of doing nothing, below.
Allows your subconscious to expand
Allows you to be introspective
Enables you to have a more reflective mindset
Triggers your imagination
Boosts overall health
These are some benefits of doing nothing, and the list goes on, but I just wanted to share my own personal experience and how doing nothing has enabled to transform my life and make me more efficient whenever I am able to do my work. As a result, doing nothing is extremely fruitful, peaceful, and puts me in a state of bliss. I hope you enjoyed the blog, and stay tuned for tomorrow, have a great day, peace!! :)
