Loafing

  1. I never had thought of loafing relating to bread. It is perfect.
    I understand the good ol’ days of a more carefree life with bun resting aplenty. I would consider sitting in front of a TV now a days to be my loaf-ability. I typically can only be still for so long however, my “getting moldy” days are over.

  2. Loafing may be necessary. It depends. Self care is necessary for joy in surviving, so if the little voice inside cries out to lie down in the grass and watch the clouds float by or to crawl up in bed on a rainy afternoon with a book, it is a good thing, if possible (and sometimes we have to MAKE it possible) to pay attention.

  3. I feel loafing is necessary. I think people need time to be still and relax. Doing too much will get you tired mentally very quickly then you will be forced to be still. We all work hard to be able to loaf one day, so why not do so from time to time now?

  4. This makes me think of the “do nothing” – it’s a children’s yoga pose – they literally lie on the floor and do nothing and the words go like this, “Do nothing. It’s good for you.”

  5. Sometimes loafing is a required part of an individuals day to wind down from the trials and efforts of the hours previous. Other people don’t need it, and feel useless if they take a moments rest. Every person is unique, and has unique preferences.

    I enjoyed this post. I enjoy the way your write and string words together. I am normally a fiction lover myself, but I am looking forward to seeing more from you!

  6. You nailed it!
    As I read the first sentences, I thought the very same – I don’t know HOW to loaf anymore. ..
    Perhaps we’ll relearn after 55. Or 60?

  7. I’ve been trying to make time for adult versions of loafing: an evening soak in a bubble bath; a Sunday afternoon spent messing about with watercolour paints; an hour after work to curl up with a good book. My house, predictably, is a disaster. 🙂
