From a wide perspective, two minutes looks like no time at all; however, when we are under pressure and emails are pouring in faster than water at Niagara Falls, two minutes can seem like an eternity if not used “efficiently.”

Click here and do nothing

Today, I happened upon a website that encourages the user to do nothing for two minutes. I encourage you to do the same, no matter how busy, how tight your deadline, or whatever excuse you want to come up with – just take two minutes and do nothing. Life will not end, although, your stress levels will reduce, and no one wants that. Right?

Just pause, breathe, and listen to the waves and life will feel lighter. I promise.

Seed: Take at least two minutes a day to be still, this will profoundly lower your stress level and increase productivity. If you can stand being still for longer, do so.

Did you survive the two minute challenge?
