Sometimes you just don't need to do anything.
That's exactly the point. We're all "doing" something all of the time, in our land-bound lives, plus the act of actually sailing to wherever it is we're going.

When the hook is set and the engine is off, I sigh in relief and decompress. I deliberately turn into a potato and do as little as possible.

I did a simple over-nighter on Friday night, and except for a few provisioning hiccups, it was pure bliss.
