Enjoy the fullness of creating empty time

TherapistPlace offers a brief article about the importance of idle time. Before suggesting ways to develop this art and to keep this daily commitment, the article includes:
"We seem to have a complex about busyness in our culture," says Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul. “Most of us do have some time each day to devote to simple relaxation, but we convince ourselves that we don’t."

And yet, the harder we push, the more we need to replenish ourselves. As Stephan Rechtschaffen, author of Timeshifting, says, "Each of us needs some time that is strictly and entirely our own, and we should experience it daily."
