Also known as idling and daydreaming, this is an activity (un-activity?) that comes all too naturally to some of us and less so to others – usually, in the case of the latter, because it’s accompanied by a sense of guilt. Well, in these strange times when normal life is largely on hiatus, we say, give yourself permission to do nothing, even if only for half an hour. How often do we allow our minds to just wander? Take a leaf out of Winnie-the-Pooh’s book and know that sometimes, doing nothing can lead to the very best of somethings – a light bulb moment, perhaps, or clarity over something that’s been bothering you, or just a greater state of serenity. Really not working? Try pottering instead.
