You ever feel like you can’t relax? And I don’t just mean because you’re nervous, but just in general? Yeah, me too.
I always have this feeling like I should be doing something. Whether it’s writing, reading, texting, something. I’ve never really sat around and thought about this too much until I ran into this website called Do Nothing for 2 Minutes Dot Com.
The website is weird, but in a really good way. You simply go to the website and do nothing while you look at a clock that counts down for 2 minutes. There is a sunset, the ocean, and the sound of waves. That’s it.
I was struck by this website because inside I had this internal struggle going on between wanting to click away and wanting to stay focused on doing nothing. Until it dawned on me that doing nothing, at least for 2 minutes, is a great thing.
It made me think about how much of what I do is unnecessary. And how all those unnecessary things stress me out at times. Then I thought about you. I thought it would be nice to share this with you, so you could be calm, even if it’s just for a little while.
There is a lot that can be said for living in the moment, seeking relaxation, and so on. But today I don’t think that will be needed.
Instead, go to this website, and do nothing. And tell me if you don’t feel better for having done it. Have a nice day.
I stayed a lot longer than two minutes.
