"Niksen" - a new way to relax

Niksen - can prevent stress and make you unwind
The word "Niksen" originates in the Netherlands and means to do nothing or do something without having a specific purpose. When you niks, you allow yourself to just be, you don't care about the clock, deadlines or social media. Niksen is not laziness, it is the ability to allow oneself to relax in the present. In fact, niksen can give you a better quality of life and increase your creativity.
So maybe on your next vacation, you need to cultivate a bit of the niksen.

How about finding a place on the coast, sit down, turn off your cell phone, let your thoughts flow as you listen to the sound of the ocean rolling. A walk in the forest could also be an option, or a walk out in the blue. Or maybe the niks for you is to sit in a chair and just look out while listening to some music.
