The Importance of Doing Nothing

Some days, I get incredibly bogged down with the things that I have to do that I don't remember half of them. Then some days, the pressure to achieve is overwhelming. It's frustrating, because I want to do so much, but I find that I don't always have the capacity to do want and/or need to do.

It's those days that I find doing nothing to be the most beneficial.

You see, as an independent author, I do my writing (obviously), but I do research, marketing, promo, planning, interaction, etc. Sometimes it gets difficult to remember self-care, other priorities, and the importance of giving your brain a rest.

My most excellent friend (Morgan Mason), reminded me to take a step back and do only what I absolutely need to for a few days. I was in the middle of an existential crisis, and those words reminded me to do nothing.

That happened Wednesday, and it's now Friday. I am continuing the path of doing nothing, but I know that I need to write this short blog post for my peace of mind.

Next week, though, please rest assured that I will post on Wednesday, and it will likely be about priorities. For now, though, I need to get back to doing nothing.
