Busy is not always productive.

It’s important to take a break.

Breathe for a while.

In Japan, the essence of “Ma” or negative space is just as important as the occupied space.

“Ma is the emptiness full of possibilities, like a promise yet to be fulfilled.”

That means pausing between tasks is okay.

Having downtime every week/month is completely fine.

Don’t let society pressure you into doing and achieving things at once.

In this time, especially where everyone is tainted with fear and distrust, it’s important to breathe for a while.

Let us take this time to celebrate nothingness.

Without knowing emptiness, we would not be able to savor the sweetness of fulfilment.
