"The disease of being busy"

Welcome back and Happy New Year 2017 to all of you out there!

Today I would like to share this excellent article on being busy and on being human with you.

I agree with the author, that it is so easy to fall into the trap of chasing around, to do all at the same time. But we shouldn't make a schedule our master and not have time to enjoy what we like. It is a skill and a priviledge to have time free and maybe it is also something we have to learn again, if we've been working too much for too long.

Sit back, have a cup of tea, do nothing, just be yourself.  :)

And i just wanted to add one thing: I think it is important for all of us to know what to do with ourselves when there is no "schedule", no "planned entertainment". Especially children have to learn to rely on their imagination instead of being entertained and being passive - I believe strongly that if you are actively creating your own world and activities when you are a child, you develop more skills than if you are carted from one activity to the next club and then on to the telly or computergaming inside. Skills that you will benefit from as an adult.
