do nothing for two minutes

Posted on February 25th, 2011

Dearest Reader of This Blog,


Should you find yourself today: agitated, bossed about, distracted, thinking that you’re crap and you’ll never be able to get task X done, that you don’t have enough time, that there’s too much to do…do nothing for two minutes.

I’ve found a link that will help. I just swear it does.

Not much to it. Just click here. There are nice waves on it. Be awashed.

Love from Sarah x

    ha ha ha, I went to turn up the volume on my laptop so i could hear the waves and it failed me! :) Very cute though, nice idea.


  • Sarah H.

    I got the same fail message! Whoops! I love the concept. Obviously, it’s something I have to work on.


  • Ebony

    Thanks for the post. I really needed this today. Hope it turned your morning around too :)

    Ahhhhhh it made me miss the real ocean!!! I will try later to get it to awash me not make me miss oceans.


  • Tim Tyrell-Smith

    Absolutely love the idea – whether I have something to stare at or not. And should do it every day. Just breathe. :-) Thanks Sarah.


  • Kim O’Brien

    I loved this! It’s amazing how long 2 minutes can seem. I need to do more of this. Thank you so much for sharing!


  • Kristy

    Thanks Sarah! Really does help. Feels so calm!


  • Megs

    I love do nothing for 2 minutes. It works. When I can actually make it the whole 2 minutes.

    Since I’m incapable of actually doing -nothing- for 2 minutes, I really like this site I recently found, similar to your ‘FAIL IF YOU MOVE’ ocean site. :)

    You can breathe, relax, chant OM in perfect sync with other visitors around the globe. I find a good 3-5 minutes of focused breathing to be most restorative.

    thanks Sarah, that is exactly how I’m feeling today, how did you know…


  • Paul

    Excellent relaxation resources – I have bookmarked both. Love the DoAsOne concept and colours!

    I had a giggle at the end. You know that clip of a car driving on a winding road in the country and it looks so beautiful and serene and then suddenly this demented twit comes up on the screen and just screams at you…….too funny!


  • Erin

    That was hard! Thanks Sarah!


  • Kasey

    Why is it so hard to just sit still? It is something I need to work on. Thank you for the post!


  • Amanda

    so simple, but really something I need to work on. Sometimes I just feed my stress more stress. Taking two minutes can really make a difference.


  • Rachel

    I couldn’t do it!


  • LisaJennea

    I failed haha. But what an awesome tool to bookmark for future use. Sometimes we need those reminders to just slow down and breathe, and so nothing.

    I thought it was a little gimmicky. I prefer a real grounding exercise for a few minutes with real earth, sun, air, than to stare at a countdown clock, listening to fake digitised ocean, whilst being bathed in wi-fi signal. Or even a mini meditation, a little prayer, or something…whatever happened to looking out the window! If there’s no window to look out of, perhaps that why there’s stress to resolve.

    Awesome…..2 minutes wasnt long enough!

    There are rain forest vids at You Tube that do the same thing for me…one is 8 minutes long! So Relaxing~

    Thanks for this time during my day
