The Surprising Power of Waiting

This great article from the www.mindful.org website puts idle time into perspective.  So much of our time is spent doing something that whenever we have a free moment, we like to fill it up with more stuff to do even if it’s just mindless scrolling on our phones or thinking about the million and one things on our to-do list.


Waiting an extra minute or even 5 seconds depending on the situation, can seem like an eternity to some.  But sometimes we have to be ok with just waiting and give the body permission to relax and soften the muscles instead of getting tense.  Maybe even try a smile!

Try it next time you find yourself waiting for something.  It just might be a pleasant experience.
