When you take a break or a vacation, do you have a little voice in your head that is telling you that you should be doing something productive?
I sure do and that voice is always the voice of my dad.
You see, my dad was the epitome of a hard worker. He was basically indentured to a farm when he was 9 to support his family. Yes, you read that right, 9. He lived on the farm and not with his family. It’s easy to see why he had a mindset that idleness is laziness and laziness is a sin. He was taught that he had to work hard from the time he got up until he went to bed at night and that there was always more to do.
He passed that on to me throughout my childhood.
I finally realized that this was the mindset that led me to overworking, overwhelm and being too busy to take care of myself. It might be what is happening for you too.
Idleness is not laziness. Resting and recharging can lead to big breakthroughs in creativity. They are some of the key ingredients in a balanced life.
