Sometimes it’s easy to let a particular day (let’s call it “Monday”) kick your butt. It’s even easier when you have seemingly insurmountable deadlines, impending dentist appointments (never a good thing), and a nasty cold that just won’t quit. On such days, it’s incredibly difficult to find any time for fun or relaxation… when perhaps it is needed most.
That’s why I love spinning so much. When there is no time or brain space for dedicated crafting, spinning can still be done. Just a twirl or two of the spindle makes me feel infinitely batter. It lets me take an entirely futile day and spin it into something productive, something beautiful.
Spinning scratches the creative itch just enough and really only takes 5 minutes or so to significantly improve the tone of the day. It’s pretty magical that all it takes is a few minutes to remind myself that life is more than spreadsheets, sore teeth, and snotty noses. That’s some powerful, perspective-shifting therapy, don’t you think? Have you done any spinning today?
