5 Minutes of “Doing” Nothing – As a coach, I work with numerous over-achieving clients, who are super “doers”. Yet, amidst all the success, they desire more balance in their lives and are intrigued with the idea of “being” more. BEING meaning… connecting more to yourself…or your soul. Perhaps you, too, desire more balance and more of that divine connection to YOU. The good news is, it’s easy to begin integrating “beingness” into your life. And, every client who has embarked on this exercise has experienced an immediate positive impact.
SOULFUL CHALLENGE: Take 5 Minutes each day for the next week, and do “nothing”. Just spend time BEING. That means, clear away the thoughts, clear away the action and just be. No books, no journaling, no sleeping, NO THINKING. Nothing. Just BE. That’s it. Too simple? Well, yes and no.
Yes, it’s relatively simple to find 5 minutes out of your 24 hours a day to set aside for yourself. Can you do it? Absolutely. The real question is WILL you actually take those 5 minutes for yourself – each day – for a whole week? Deciding to go for it is the easy part. The clients that have taken on this seemingly innocent task, tap into a new sense of awareness. At first, clients realize how much “chitter-chatter” is going on inside their brains, and how challenging it is to turn OFF the chatter. Clients also realize how ‘programmed’ they are to do, do, do, and go, go, go. Doing “nothing” may seem more challenging than doing “doing”. You may feel this also.
Yet, as you stay with the process, and let go of the “doingness” and just BE, you will begin to experience an array of benefits, including a greater sense of peace, expanded sense of time and personal insight. Taking control of these 5 minutes is the first step in taking control of your life. Soon “beingness” will begin to play a larger role in your life. I don’t want to spoil all the surprises for you.
