what do you usually think when you are doing nothing?

It is inevitable for a person to have idle moments when actually there is nothing else to do. How do you break in your thinking that you will still be productive even if you just sit or lie.

Thinking can be very constructive as well. Thought is a vibration and it can be measured whereby it has a magnitude. Therefore when you think something, you are sending a signal to the universe and the universe is is responding to it by making your thought come to reality. I suggest you to think good and don't waste time thinking negative. If you think negative than you are attracting that negative thing to happen in your life. Cancel the negative thoughts with a positive thought immediately. have a wonderful day ahead.

That's very good, riyauro. I never thought of it that way. You have an interesting view on thinking. Usually when I'm not doing anything I just start to daydream about being someplace nice, out in the country or the woods. Sitting by the side of a river. Things like that. I'm not a very constructive thinker! But I'm old so I guess I'm allowed. When I was younger I did a lot of craft things so I was always thinking creatively. Not so much anymore. Have a great day!

Sometimes reminiscing happy memories and as a mother planning for things to do in the next couple of days or reviewing in my mind if what are the home task that need to be attended or had been overlooked to.

I usually think of the last thing I did. I was re-reading the Harry Potter books and most of the time when I have nothing to think about, I keep on imaging the scenes in the books. I also sometimes think that what we think when we think of nothing (I think this is kind of ironic) is what we want most in that time. Like I am feeling hungry right now :) so that's what I am thinking about while answering your question.

When I am doing nothing or just sitting or lying in bed, I usually think about what will I do the next hours, or tomorrow, or the coming days. I am a worrier by nature and I always worry about everything. It can be sometimes stressful whether it has something to do with my career or my family.

Sometimes I'll think about earn more money, sometimes I'll think about learn more studies, sometimes what to eat or drink next...but most of the time, like when I'm surfing the net, when riding a bus, when travelling on MTR, when eating...I'm thinking nothing. So I'm thinking nothing when I'm doing nothing. I think I am not a thinker. ^^

With alot of my spare time I tend to spend it doing surveys if there available or come on here see what people are upto. If I'm in the thinking zone I write my thoughts down in the form of lyrics and wrte a song for my band, I like to write songs, I'll write as many as possible even if we don't use the I keep them all in a folder. Oh and video games, I love to play them :)

I usually listen to my favorite music, it always helps me relax and stay cool. I usually try to do something when I have nothing to do since I'm not used to it like playing computer games, surfing the net, trying to earn online and the likes.
