I've read a lot lately about how we're all overextended.
We check Facebook too much. We read too many blogs. We check email too much.
I'm certainly guilty of that. (Ask Durel. No, don't. Just take my word for it.)
The articles all basically say the same things:
- Stop social media'ing yourself to death. (Sigh. I can't quit Instagram. But does that mean I have to quit Twitter? I am all bunched up about this one.)
- Breathe more. (Trying.)
- Sleep more. (OK.)
- Read more. (And not Us Weekly, I presume. I'll get on it.)
- Eat well. (Working on it, but we eat pretty well.)
- Exercise. (On it.)
- Be with the people that you love. (Like, actually with them. Not checking Facebook on your phone while you're sitting next to them.) (Ooh, yup. OK.)
Burn, huh? It's true because it's true.
So then, Jack and I went out to lunch. And I paid attention. And do you know what I learned?
The kid loves bread, man.
Oh, and he's really fun to have lunch with. That's not news, but it's always fun to contemplate.
Hope you learn something by being present today.
