We live in an amazing time with advanced technology and endless opportunities. But this amazing time comes with a disadvantage: we feel the urge to always DO something and that causes our brain to get overwhelmed and our energy to get depleted. And while it is so necessary, it has almost become an art – doing nothing. So much so that we actually have a word for it in Dutch! It’s called Niksen.
