In recent times, I have had a few moments to stop, observe and review… Or in another term, to ponder. In a fast paced world I have found that it can be difficult to get time alone, with nothing to do, but think. When is the last time that you have taken time to just ponder?
On of my favourite things to do while pondering is to people watch. I enjoy sitting down in a public space and watch people interact with each other. Even without hearing the conversation a lot can be taken in from just watching. Watching the actions, reactions and the body language. So much can be learnt through observing others.
Another benefit of pondering is allowing the time for one’s own brain to think in a creative way. To think without an agenda is a freeing experience. It allows us the ability to think outside the square, to come up with new ideas and ways of doing things. I encourage you to take the time out of your busy schedule to just ponder….
- When is the last time that you took time to let you mind wander freely?
- What great ideas have come to you when you least expect it?
- What is the a favourite place for you to ponder?
