"I want to do all the things"
I find myself saying this and I hear this sentiment echoed from my partner, loved ones, and friends. But hold on, it's hard and sometimes impossible to do all the things all the time!
What I like to call "nothing time" or time off can be really valuable. This may be time where you feel like you're not being productive or meeting the fast pace demands of everyday life. I know this may sound like a privilege or luxury, yet it can span any length of time, even lasting for just a few minutes.
I often spend my time off by drinking a cup of chamomile tea mindfully (and sometimes not so mindfully) and watching Vice documentaries on YouTube.
What do you like to do with your "nothing time" or time off?
⍢ Things I believe about therapy and the way I work:
» It's an organic exchange
» It's relational in nature, offering the opportunity for repair
» It's holistic by making space for the mind, body, and soul
» It's providing a witness to honor your joy, sorrow, and the ebbs and flows of life
» It's recognizing you are the master of your own ship
» It's supporting you to tap into your inner wisdom
» It's informed by a *social justice lens*, keeping in mind "isms" and intersectionality (queer therapist here, hi 👋🏻)
