Happy Sunday! I have been gone online for a long time. I wish I can say I have been into a lot of things – although I have more of the greatest hits I put in here like our family trip to beautiful Vigan and our Sunday breakfasts over at Asin Hot Springs. Work took most of my time. I often spend days sitting on my desk and I go home very tired. Which is why I spend my weekends wasting time doing the following:
Daydreaming might feel like the ultimate waste of time, but believe me, it is not. Research suggests that during daydreaming, your brain may actually be processing important issues that aren’t relevant at that immediate moment – anything from strategizing tonight’s dinner to wondering about your dog’s mysterious poop (oh, yeah, now that my kids are sort of grown up, it is what I tend to obsess on). So forgive yourself for spacing out during that important meeting with your boss. Though you may not even be aware of it, you’ve got other things on your mind.
Napping does a mind and body good. A 15-to-20 minute snooze can make you more alert and energized and improve your stamina, and longer naps can even help you learn and retain information better. Such a perfect excuse, too, if the boss ever catches you napping on your desk.
Messiness is in the eye of the beholder. I always swore that I thrive on chaos. Now I got something to validate that. Just because your idea of “organized” is scattered or mixed up doesn’t mean you’re necessarily slower or less efficient. You may just have your own system. And if you’re naturally a little sloppy, what really wastes time is struggling to maintain strict order. Sure, always searching for your keys isn’t exactly time efficient, but think of the treasures you will discover in the depths of your bag!
