il bel far niente .

Being still, doing absolutely nothing and being content with it (no, I don’t mean sleeping.) is an art we all need to learn. Phones, TVs and laptops switched off; the only things with us our thoughts and feelings.

Society today underrates the practice and power of the simplest form of being. This makes this art harder for some to learn than others, but we’re all capable of it.

Once you learn it but most importantly, feel comfortable with it, you’ll gain an invaluable power that will accompany you throughout your life. This power is built on the feeling of enoughness and beside this, simplicity, both of which I believe are the keys to a happy life.
