When you say you're doing nothing are you really doing something?
Yes. Even when doing nothing, your brain is still running. So you're still thinking. Even during sleep, your brain is still going in REM sleep and keeping your body functioning.
But I never tell anyone I'm doing nothing. It's better to tell them what you are doing and say "why do you ask". Then they invite you to coffee, a movie, boating, etc.
I like that. I'm always up for going out and staying active. Sometimes other people come up with new and unique things to do easier than I do. Though, I must say that I do try to stay on top of the latest happenings.
When I answer the phone and someone asks what I'm up to, I catch myself often saying, "Nothing," when what I really mean to say is, "Nothing so important that I don't have time to talk to you."
Isn't that the truth. There you are trying to be nice and take time for the call and it makes it sound like you have nothing to do. It could make people feel sorry for you. I know I wouldn't want that for myself.
Thanks so much,
