Today was one of the best Sundays I’ve had in a long time.
My wife and I picked up some top soil today for our new vegetable garden we’re planting.
It’s been a long time since I’ve “played in the dirt” and it felt good. It was freeing to be away from my phone and laptop all day.
I could feel my brain relax as I shoveled dirt for hours, pulled weeds and got my hands dirty.
I don’t know why it felt so good but it did. Maybe because I live so much of my life staring at screens that it was refreshing to just be offline for a change.
A chance to breathe, think and just enjoy the moment.
If you’re a busy person and you feel like you want to chill out then start a garden. Build some raised beds, by some top soil and plant something. The “something” is not as important as the process.
So anyway, I just wanted to share because it was such a good experience for me today.
Plus, I got to spend hours with my wife and my 2-year-old son Benji (he loved riding the lawnmower around as we towed a little trailer of dirt back and forth from the truck to the garden.)
Here’s some more pictures…
