Things we’re thinking about this week:
Downtime. The different between laying on the couch watching the same show for the 87th time, and reading a new book is monumental. It doesn’t matter if the book is any good, it broadens your mind. Downtime doesn’t mean you sit and become a vegetable (sure, there are times when it’s the only thing that you want to do and even makes sense to do), but it shouldn’t be the only option.
Downtime is for learning, embracing and perfecting a craft. It’s for moments when you need to get away from the core of your existence (really just a fancy way to say work). As long as you’re learning, you’re doing something right.
When too many days of doing nothing start piling on, it’s hard to snap back into the right frame of mind. Don’t let it overwhelm and take over you.
