Sometimes what's needed is to just rest. No reading, no thinking, no doing; just resting. Just gently breathing; no effort. Just being still, just resting; giving the body I chance to sort itself out. No thinking, no judging, no planning; just being still, and giving the body I chance to just completely rest for a moment. No thinking, no effort, just being still and silent and breathing and present in and for the body for a moment, this moment; just a chance for the body to get settled a bit. Sometimes what's needed is to just rest.
