I have discovered the lost art of doing nothing and enjoying it.

Old timers called it relaxation.

Nowadays, relaxation is a 10 minute break.

It's all about perceptions. Here is an example.

"Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet. " ~ Bob Marley

Porch sittin' was once a favorite national past time.

Sitting zazen when done properly is "doing nothing".

Unfortunately in some folks it takes years to learn to not listen to the thoughts running around in ones own head.

Sitting zazen = meditating for those who are not into Zen. (at least outwardly)
