Is there an Art of Wasting Time?
If you do it right, waste time that is, you can enhance both your creativity and well-being. I call it ZenDally™ which translates unofficially to “take time mindfully.” See my ZenDally™ page for a deeper definition.
“You gotta know when to be lazy. Done correctly, it’s an art form that benefits everyone.”
Originally, dally was from the French dalier which meant to amuse oneself. How wonderful it would be to amuse oneself into a zen-like state.
Well, you can! With ZenDally™ Activities.
What are ZenDally™ Activities?
ZenDally™ Activities are imaginative activities that make us feel vibrantly alive and connected to the most essential part of ourselves.
ZenDally™ Activities are a way to give our left brain a break. When we turn the volume down on our left brain for a while, it gives the right brain the chance to tap into our subconscious to access the resources of memory, creativity, imagination, and intuition. That’s why we get all sorts of crazy ideas when we take a shower or lie down for a nap, or while we are driving. Our left brain relaxes a bit and we can hear our inner voice whispering secrets of wisdom.
“Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.”
Take anywhere from 5 minutes to 30 minutes daily to engage in these good for your soul activities, but don’t be surprised if you can’t pull yourself away!
