Today is the first day back to work for many of us. Maybe you were traveling or hosting guests or shopping or just spending time with family, and while the busyness of the Thanksgiving weekend is over, you are not inspired to get back to business.

You may feel uninspired to do anything because you have not taken sufficient time for yourself. You are making the transition from the holiday weekend to an average workday, and that can be difficult.

When you are uninspired, think of it this way: maybe you are inspired to do nothing, and that is something! When you feel like this, take five or ten minutes to just be. By taking time for yourself, you will be enjoying the silent moments.

Revel in the quiet and look for the silence between your thoughts. Cherish boredom. Enjoy the slowness, the stillness, and the lack of activity wherever you find it. These quiet times are always there and noticing them will help to bring moments of peace to the frenzied pace of the holiday. To find it, all you have to do is close your eyes.
