The Art of Doing Nothing

A culture of overachievers, we make things happen — and happen fast. While rushing along, though, the days seem to get shorter and shorter. If only time would hold still, just a little bit, to let us savor life's simplest moments. . . .

"The Art of Doing Nothing" will help to ease these beat-the-clock jitters. The stress-reducing techniques described here require no time, no skill, no commitment. A practical guide to rest and relaxation, it ushers us into a world where "being" is more compelling than "doing."
Beautifully illustrated with Erica Lennard's photographs, "The Art of Doing Nothing" gives us permission to celebrate idleness in all its mesmerizing forms. Vé ronique Vienne's delightfully informative essays on the art of breathing, meditating, bathing, listening, waiting, and more offer useful tips on such skills as how to whistle, stay in the moment, take a nap, cure a cold, or watch the sun set over the horizon. Without further ado — and without feeling guilty — we learn to unwind, exhale, and, yes, stop and smell the roses.
Like Ira Gershwin, you will be delighted to discover that you've got plenty of nothin', and that nothin's plenty for you.
