A Day Doing Nothing Versus a Wasted Day

A day doing nothing and a wasted day are not one and the same.

A day doing nothing could constitute a lot of doing, but not for any distinguishable end goal.

A wasted day is nothing like that.

A wasted day is where you do not do the things which inspire, invigorate or recharge you, but rather, hole away and avoid the world.

A day doing nothing is a day of rest.

A wasted day is a day lost.

We all stumble into wasted days from time to time.

Wasted days happen and they have their purpose, but you need to be cognizant of how often wasted days occur.

Ask yourself how many wasted days seems appropriate to you.

Ask yourself what a wasted day could be replaced with.

The next time you feel yourself wanting to wallow away and run away from your life, think about how else you could utilize your time, which could be more beneficial for your mental health and future outlook.

The one thing I notice when my wasted days begin to grow in numbers is that I am teetering dangerously close to falling into a rut.

It can be really difficult, but taking baby steps really helps make the mountains into molehills.

Break up your wasting time with productivity and you will realize that the doing is much more beneficial than the wasting.
