It’s pretty mainstream knowledge that some of the main components to optimal wellness are exercise, meditation, rest and great nutrition. Did you know there is another HGUE aspect that many of us are leaving out on a daily basis?
Doing nothing. That is it. So simple - do absolutely nothing. Downtime. This does not mean watching The Bachelor, relaxing and listening to a podcast or reading a book. This is time free of screen or audio. Just sit and allow yourself to be with your thoughts.
But, what exactly does this look like? It could be you sitting on your back porch with a cup of tea for 15-30 minutes. Going to your favorite spot at the beach and watching and listening to the waves for a bit. Even gardening, walking through the forest or other tasks that are not demanding of you mentally.
Why is this so important? We are constantly using our brain and not giving it the deserved downtime it needs. Even though we treat it like a machine, it is not.
