There is something to be said about just stopping and taking a little bit of time to observe and see what is around you. To notice details, colors, textures. After sitting in front of the computer for a few hours, I had about 40 minutes before I needed to leave. I decided my time would best be used for my soul if I took a walk like I had hoped to do earlier in the day, but hadn’t gotten to. I was right. It was perfect. At first I didn’t think I would get very far on the walk because I stopped almost immediately to take a picture. then another. and another. But I allowed myself to both walk and observe.
Instead of using 15-30 minutes scrolling through friends statuses or getting distracted on the computer consider using it to observe relax in a creative way you enjoy.
