I made it to dinner time with the family at home. When it is time to cook I will often reward myself with a little podcast, show, or some kind of media. It is my time and the extra splurge in something I want makes it a little more enjoyable. I wash the whole ordeal down with a beer.
I know that I could use more silence, more room for my personal thoughts to develop. My annual time at Wilderness emphasizes the point… no distractions for 3 days leaves me feeling as clear headed as I am in any given year.
I am not a resolution making kind of guy but if I were I think I would try to make more time to give to my thoughts. Less netflix, podcasts, news articles, headlines, media… or at least confine those stimuli. Continue the push for a health balance.
