Find equilibrium by quieting your inner critic. Banish the “should” voice in your head. You’ll never find freedom while harassing yourself.
Donate at least an hour today to doing nothing. Nothingness is different for every person. For me, it means focusing on sounds rather than visuals, e.g. listening to music with closed eyes. For you, it may mean daydreaming while walking in your neighborhood.
This may sound like pat, basic advice (that’s my inner critic by the way—she thinks many things I have to say are basic and obvious), but letting yourself off the hook is anything but easy. If I could convince you of one thing with this email it is this: Doing nothing is worth the effort.
