Don't just do something
I’m making dinner while writing this. You?
Five things to share:
For this week, why not try the following:
Re-design your lifestyle.
Brag about the 7-9 hours of sleep you get each night.
Go for a walk.
Nurture your hobby(ies).
Kill your phone.
Boast about all the books you have been reading in your free time.
Fill your days with silence, contemplation, and boredom.
One of the oldest pianists in the world is 106-year-old Colette Maze and she has been playing the piano since she was five years old. She says that being passionate is the key to staying young at heart: Less scrolling, more passionate-ing.

A question for you: What is your reason for unplugging?
If there is no good reason to be doing something then it’s not worth doing.
That’s all for this week!
