A Lazy Day

John Sovec

Sleepy PuppyIt is very rare that I spend a day doing nothing. I wonder why. Of course, there’s usually a lot to do each day. There are many things I am passionate about – but occasionally I decide I need a “do nothing” kind of day.

On those days, I like to sleep, listen to the sounds of the house, watch the dog sleep, and in general not push myself. On those days, I often find that I’ve become more aware of my physical, emotional and spiritual being because I’ve given my body a little more space to speak to me.

And I never plan in advance when I’m going to take one of my “do nothing” days – that’s the fun part. It’s like winning a second prize in a box of Cracker Jack.
