The Fear of Free Time

29 Apr

Always on the go. School, work, meetings, family reunions, friend gatherings, research. 24/7 non-stop. Every day, every week. And then BOOM – nothing. Suddenly, a whole afternoon all for yourself. You immediately start to panic – have I forgotten something? Am I neglecting somebody? Am I just shirking? STOP.

This paranoia needs to stop. Take a step back and seriously think about the following: What is the last time you “did nothing”? The last time you sat back to reflect upon things, to relax, or to enjoy one of your “guilty pleasures“? 

Step up against this hectic nonsense. Allow yourself to breathe from time to time. Workaholism is definitely not the answer, albeit it may help you forget the question. Don´t fear those relaxed moments, embrace them.



Go out and enjoy the spring, dear Readers – and may joy and happiness be with you!
