“We are human beings, not human doings. Don't equate your self-worth with how well you do things in life. You aren't what you do. If you are what you do, then when you don't...you aren't."
- Dr. Wayne Dyer
I’m a city gal – born and raised in multiple cities around the globe. Presently, I also live in a city. So, whenever I have free time or go on vacation, I tend to get excited about going to places where there is nature to enjoy – water in particular.
I learned that being in the country side or floating on top of a natural body of water brings me closer from the “doing” mind to the “being” mind.
What do I mean?
Most of us have a list of to-dos a mile long (and keeps growing)! And if you are one of the lucky ones (insert sarcasm), you have a to-do list for every compartment of your life – work, family, friends, etc.
How do we recognize when we are “doing” too much and not “being” enough? After all, we are human beings, aren’t we?
Lists are a great tool for organization and prioritization that can help with our productivity. But that’s exactly what it is – a tool – rather than a way of life (which may hinder us to really live our lives).
Take notice of how much “doing” you do a day versus “being” and how each mindset impacts the way you feel.
What are some ways you enjoy “being” without having to take a vacation to the Mediterranean?
