Even when a pandemic-induced lockdown cleared our calendars by force, many who thought, ‘I’m free!‘ filled their days with Netflix and doomscrolling. How can we reclaim our free time (planned or not) to truly rest and reset? The Dutch have it figured out: with niksen. Perhaps their best-kept lifestyle secret, niksen is the art of doing, well, nothing. It’s the opposite of productivity, and it’s good for you.

“If you’re waiting for an invitation to go lie down in the sunshine, ‘The Lost Art of Doing Nothing‘, written by Maartje Willems and Lona Aalders, is it.”
