down time

Love this image, everyone seems to be kicking back and relaxing.
We seem to all be so over programmed that creating time to do nothing is refreshing.

Love your thoughts on down-time?
Part of finding motivation is taking time to un-wind, right?

I think down time is good for the soul and piece of mind. I like to spend my down time either taking a walk or spending time with my family and friends. They always seem to fuel my spirit. xo

I love down time, that for me is browsing a bookstore or sitting by the fire with my family!

And isn't it great when it's the whole family "chilling" together? Priceless...:))

Oh I think it is so important and we all need it and find it so hard to take that time.

it can be difficult to take down time
in this silly old world of 'achieve' ...
i still like the old fashioned idea
of putting in a full day and
enjoying the evening
kicking back ...
just like the folks
in this awesome pic!

What a great photo of relaxation and enjoying your family. We need to schedule time for this.

PVE,

I wish people could be off all during winter until spring. To retrain our bodies to follow natures call instead of falling apart at the seams. Slowly slowly awaken to spring and regain our full momentum by summer's end. We'd be motivated all the time.

I think down time is essential to being creative, inspired and motivated. Perfect down time for me is a great book and a good glass of wine or cup of coffee.
Time to power down. XO

My guys use to do that will pillows and blankets in hand!! I think as a society we spend waaaaay too much time on the go and making plans for what we will be doing next. Love the picts!! and thanks for making us think, Happy Weekend, Now I need to get back to my down time, KS
