In Defense of Relaxation

In a culture which encourages us to be constantly busy, we can feel that relaxing is unproductive and lazy. Even when we want to unwind, we often experience guilt and shame and continue to stress about our obligations and deadlines.

In busy living we resist reconnecting with ourselves. We resist answering hard questions. We move restlessly, but fail to realize that we’re not going anywhere.

Don’t be afraid of moments of stillness and silence. They are tougher than busyness, but invaluable in uncovering our deepest truth.

Exhale, observe and invoke serenity.
