Doesn't the name itself seem like a lot of fun for people who are always working and multitasking? Every year on the first Sunday in November, Zero Tasking Day is recognized and informally celebrated. This year's date is November 7th. Its purpose is to urge and persuade people to take advantage of the extra 60 minutes available when daylight savings ends to pamper themselves, relax, and do nothing. Simply looking around and admiring life. Zero Tasking Day encourages us to spend our leisure time enjoying the peace and quiet while appreciating our surroundings and lives. Take a break and do nothing for a while.
The conclusion of Daylight Saving Time is on the first Sunday in November, so set your clocks back one hour. Zero Tasking Day takes place, in which participants are urged to accomplish the polar opposite of multitasking and do zero activities. With Daylight Savings ending, the sun will set a little earlier, which will urge you to celebrate the holiday because you won't have as much light to keep active outside. With the busy Christmas season ahead of us, now appears to be the ideal moment to dedicate one entire day to doing nothing. You'll be Christmas shopping, making cookies for the kids' various holiday school events, decorating your home, and preparing for visitors before you know it.
When was the last time you did nothing at all? You probably have days when you declare you're going to do nothing, but that corner of the home that needs sweeping or that stack of mail beckons you. Before you know it, hours have passed while you were preoccupied. You weren't multitasking on Sunday. Your brain's cache should be cleared. Restart your computer. Reload your information. Here are some ideas for how to make the most of Zero Tasking Day.
Disable all notifications
On Saturday night, switch off all of your alarms and reminders to begin your Zero Tasking Day. On Sunday, sleep until your body tells you it's time. On Zero Tasking Day, you may sleep in like a teenager with no obligations since you don't have any. Turn off notifications on all of your applications, including emails, social networking, news apps, and more. Don't worry: a small sticky note on your refrigerator will serve as a reminder to return them on Monday. The most essential thing is to avoid anything that will remind you of the busy outside world and the numerous duties you have to complete later this week. You require a complete break from everything.
