Today I’ve done nothing. After the frenzy of Christmas preparations and baking/decorating dozens upon dozens of cookies (a few samples below) – not to mention managing a load of work stress, today I’ve done absolutely nothing.

Or to put it another way:

1.) I rested.

2.) I chose not to make plans.

3.) I recovered from the week/day.

4.) I shortened my to-do list.

5.) I had a mental health day.

6.) I took a nap.

7.) I watched the show I love.

8.) I had a day with myself.

9.) I recuperated.

10.) I had some time out.

I loved that list and the reminder to reframe “doing nothing,” when appropriate.

So let me start over. Today I:

1.) Took the day off from work.

2.) Cuddled on the couch with my dog.

3.) Watched Christmas movies.

4.) Enjoyed the light of my Christmas tree.

5.) Allowed myself to rest and be un-busy.

6.) Felt contentment.
