But I've taking advantage of this downtime to get into my study of the Torah (after all, it IS the Sabbath). No matter what the weather may be, whether it's nice out (as it is today), snowing, or even if I'm in the middle of the California or Arizona desert, I'm always amazed by the beauty of my G-d's creation.
I'm very grateful for days like this, where I take advantage of the time at hand, as opposed to taking it for granted, which is something we all find ourselves doing daily. In our hectic & busy daily lives, we should - at the very least - clear our schedules for at least 1/2 a day, just to slow down and catch our breath.
I dare you to try it: 1/2 a day with nothing to do, completely unplugging from work related tasks.
Then talk about how it felt.
I dare you!
