Fruitful Procrastination

I had an idea just now. So I have a tendency to procrastinate. But... that's part of my personality - and a lot of times my procrastination has led me into a lot of new ideas...

So, why not aim for productive procrastination? By this, I don't mean the fruitless kind of procrastination that comes from mindlessly playing trivial games. But healthy procrastination by doing fun things that stretch your mind. It's a bit like making your mind go for a stroll. Since it wants to take a break, let it take a healthy kind of break.

Go read a book. Go write a blog. Go read some good magazine. Go read a funny comic and have a healthy laugh. Go meet a friend and catch up. Go dream. Go dance. Go make that model kit you always wanted to do but kept putting it off to do "more productive things". Go do origami. Go fly a kite (literally). Go play with the dog. Go plant some flowers. Feel the air. Run your hands through the grass. Pray and thank God for the good weather. Give Him a big smile. Make a tender card. Go think about the meaning of life. As long as it's true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. :)
