Do Nothing for Three Minutes

Follow these instructions: take the time you would have spent reading one of our thoughtful posts to do nothing. No checking your phone, web browsing, doodling or walking. The only exceptions to the activity moratorium are paying attention to your breath, mentally scanning your body for tightness and other sensations and listening to ambient noise. Stop everything else. You have nothing more important to do than sit still. Stop doing. Be. Enjoy.

    That was really wonderful. Thank you for the reminder of how needed and nice it is to just stop, even for a few moments. I feel much better than I did before I started the exercise.

    My boss might say that I do nothing for 8 hours a day 🙂
