Do less

Illness at the weekend and enforced rest led to a lightning bolt of inspiration which said,

“Do less.”

Hardly rocket science, is it?  But it seems radical to me as I have always felt a compulsion to be doing something, constantly.  Even my relaxation time involves doingactivity: knitting, sewing, gardening – and does reading count as doing something?

“Not doing” is a bit of a radical step for me.  Bear with me as I explore the difference between doing less and doing nothing, and whether doing nothing actually matters.  I foresee a bit of soul-searching about what counts as wasting time, and whether wasting time is the big sin I always thought it was…

But not today.  Even soul searching is too much like ‘doing’ today.
