Yes exercise is good. I think I should hit the weights and my bull-worker again.

I like to meditate

But I dont like to sit otherwise. I exercise when I watch tv, i'm usually posting on here from my phone as I cook or pace around the house, cant really stand to sit at a computer since i do it at work all day.

I have a lot of anxiety though and if I sit still it catches up with me. Gotta keep moving.

The anxiety can be overwhelming when you just sit. but for me it represents something I'm not facing. And I feel I am "Avoiding" the void. I know it's something I don't want to see.

I think the better question is why would you want to sit and do nothing.

Reminds me of one time back when I lived with my mother.
I was home in the livingroom in the dark just sitting there nothing on.
Mom walks in and says "why are you sitting there doing nothing "
I asked "what do you want me to do?"
She said "watch tv"
I answered "the stories in my head are better than anything on tv"

 

 

i have a friend in her 90's...one day she didnt answer the door so i let myself in and knocked on the next door...still nothing so i checked the livingroom and there she was just sitting in the quiet

 

i asked her what she doing

 

her answer was "praying for god to let her die"

 

that was years ago...she is still alive

I listen to music all the time. The only time I sit and do nothing is when I'm feeling really depressed.

If I got TV it's amazing how I can sit on a channel I have no interest in and watch a show I don't care for, for hours on end or sometimes I'll just find myself watching the same channel I don't like and even watching the re-run episodes that were on in the morning and I'm still sitting there watching it mostly because switching channels is too mind stimulating and just a little bit more effort that I don't want to spend.

if i'm sitting i'm meditating, reading, eating, working on something on the computer, and i daily thank whatever dieties might love or tolerate me for not having a tv to be addicted to.

i couldn't even sit and cuddle for more then an hour without thinking of something i wanted to make or do on the computer.

its not that i don't spend a lot of my life sitting, but its sitting in front of this computer, doing things i like to think of as creative.

even if i didn't have one, i'd be drawing in a sketchbook or imagining running trains in my head.

or reading.  there are too many things i do in my head to imagine even what doing nothing means, if it even has a meaning.


my nation is the imagination

this is the dawning of the age of zootopia

and thank god i'm not quite human

I have the news on all the time with the sound down, Can hardly sit without it on. Mostly RT because they have the most attractive presenters.

Crack me up Glen. For those who don't know RT is Russia Today the Kremlin's propaganda channel.
