Why having a busy schedule is a bad idea

I don’t know about you, but I have been doing A LOT.
The trap is though: you can never gather enough ‘doings’ to start being.
Um…
I’m sorry what?

I’m just saying that sometimes your ego tricks you and prevents you from resting and taking breaks.
Because if you’re doing nothing, “you’re lazy and you’re not worthy”
and then you feel guilty that you’re “not being productive”…

But guess what I found out…
Babies do nothing all day and they are so valuable!
You used to be a baby once, and everbody around you loved you
for being a baby and doing NOTHING all day (and on top of that
others were even cleaning your pee and poo!)

So…
am I saying you should act like a baby?
God no!

I’m just saying that we should learn to feel valuable when we are just being (like babies!)
Just being and watching netflix.
Just being and meditating.
Just being and… (fill in the blanks)
Just being!

And we should take naps and breaks and days off,
without our ego trying to trick us into feeling guilty.

(No offense ego, we do need you, but sometimes,
you kind of make up problems that aren’t really there…)

To sum it up:
Just listen to Winnie The Pooh (seriously guys)
and take naps when you need to.

Because what could be SO important?

So…
when will your next break be?

PS, how about you start calling your to do’s, ta da’s,
wouldn’t that make you feel better?
