PAY ATTENTION! THE ART OF MINDFULNESS

There was an article in TIME about being mindful. Apparently there are $$$ classes now to teach people how to shut off their cell phones and stick a raisin in their mouth and chew real slow...really EXPERIENCE the raisin. That's changing people's lives!

GIMME A BREAK

I am 56 years old and we had a NO COST lecture from parents & teachers in the 1960s: "Concentrate."

It is a sad place we live if we can't focus on one thing at a time. Multi-tasking is fine, probably good for our brain, but so is focusing on one thing at a time. This is NEWS?

The greatest generation has the "art form" down perfectly---they call it TAKING A NAP.

Try that, and if you can't do it, busy yourself with cleaning your home, gardening, or TAKING A WALK.  And seriously break your cell phone addiction. You Don't need to carry it with you.
