there is a Chinese Proverb that says, “it is the empty space that makes a vase useful.”
observe “no structure” days so you can empty yourself occasionally.
on that day, be selective about what you hear. no media. eliminate the normal noise pollution.
be intentional and deliberate about what you’re absorbing.
focus on melodious sounds, like ocean waves or a steady breeze.
attune to your own rhythms by going car-free for the day.
allow yourself to be pulled into activities instead of pushed.
and let the day be completely structure free.
repeat as often as you can. xo
