“You have to allow a certain amount of time
in which you are doing nothing in order to have
things occur to you, to let your mind think.”
— Mortimer Adler
Have you ever taken a break from work by doing something that requires almost no thought, or just relaxing, or lightly napping, and a problem you were working on or a situation that you needed an answer for was suddenly solved?
It seems that the harder I try to figure something out, it is in the letting go of it, relaxing away from any thought of it, that the the easy solution comes through without any effort on my part. I have practiced letting this happen and find it so valuable.
Next time you have issues that are bugging you, practice letting go of the issue and just relax, read a book, watch a movie, work in the garden or take a nap. With just a small amount of practice, I think you will find as I have that this special time is very productive no matter how it may appear to others.
