I prefer to do as little as possible when I’m taking it easy. I find that I’m either on or off. There’s no dimmer switch. Most of the time, I can’t sit still.
I tend to do the same things repeatedly. It would be good if I were to try different things, branch out and the like. Leisure time isn’t the time for exploration. It’s the time to do what’s easiest. Why would you want to climb a different mountain?
Doing nothing, unplugging, checking out, and chilling is not an easy thing to do these days. Being bored means scrolling through your phone or binge-watching a show you’ve already seen. We do so much while we’re bored. Maybe because of this, just sitting in a chair, looking out isn’t an easy thing to do. In fact, it feels like a luxury.
Despite everything that we have at our immediate disposal, sometimes the nicest thing to do is absolutely and completely nothing.
