Something I Think Many of Us have Forgotten how Much We Enjoy…

I read an article on Thought Catalogue and there was one bulletpoint that I just had to stop. My Imagination bubbled with a tea shoppe in France and an antique clock on the wall. Here’s the quote.. 

“2. Savoring time to do nothing. Taking a cue from pre-industrialized society and cultures that enjoy siestas and long, drawn-out, sit-down teas that serve no other purpose than to spend time enjoying the time you have.” 

This is something a lot of us have forgotten how to do and even how relaxing it can be, we are a society who constantly checks our phones whenever we have time we have forgotten how to sit quietly, maybe outside if weather permits, drink tea or coffee and just.. BE. 

I believe that it is important to have this daily, just a moment for your mind and body to relax. Not thinking about what you’ve got to do later today, or next week, or next year. Not letting your mind overthink situations and conversations that are in the past, but living in the moment and simply enjoying the small things in life.
