Much ado about Niksen: A guide to daydreaming and doing nothing
‘Doing nothing is better than being busy doing nothing.’ – Lao Tzu
‘Society has shifted toward prioritizing hyper-productivity, making the notion of doing nothing seem unproductive and inefficient.
If there is time left unfilled during the day, there is an urge to fill it with something.
It's no wonder people have such a hard time relaxing and enjoying moments of nothingness.’- Rachelle Williams, Vedic Educator
I recall so vividly, the parents evening at my school all those decades ago in Tehran:
“Kamran is a pleasant child, he has good manners, but he daydreams too much,” my teachers used to tell my parents.
Far from being ashamed of my daydreaming, I am grateful for it.
