The Joy of Doing Nothing

I usually have a whole list of things I want to see and do on vacation. Not this time…

Dog on York Harbor Beach in Maine

I’m writing this blog from the house my family rented in York Harbor, Maine, for a mini-reunion. I usually have a whole list of things I want to see and do on vacation, especially if it’s a place I’ve never been. Not this time. The two weeks leading up to this vacation were jammed with deadlines and meetings and I didn’t get around to doing any research besides printing out driving directions from Google maps.

Actually seeing the stars at night.

Who knew doing nothing could be so fun…and so fulfilling? I guess most of us live such overscheduled, overstressed lives that our minds and spirits need rest as much as our bodies do. Have you discovered the joy of doing nothing? I’d love to know how.
