I took a bath yesterday, which I almost never do. I lit a candle, turned on some jazz, closed my eyes and didn’t look at a screen for half an hour. As I was lying there, I realized I hardly ever do nothing. It’s not that I feel stressed all the time or that my life is non-stop action; it’s just that even when I “relax,” I’m still doing something. When I watch TV, I’m also working or blogging. I go to yoga for the workout more than the zen, and during savasana, I think about what I’m going to have for dinner. My afternoon coffee breaks double as outfit photo shoot opportunities (see above).

But yesterday I did nothing for 30 minutes and it was lovely. So lovely, in fact, that as soon as my fingers turned pruney, I dried off and blogged about it, then made some to-do lists and meal prepped for the week. Namaste.

    well, I’m glad that you were able to enjoy your bath and your time free of stimuli – sometimes we get so used to the constant hum that it feels nearly impossible to just relax and do nothing. Also how gorgeous is your sweater??
