We just spent a week in the mountains of New Mexico with no TV, radio, recorded music or computer. It was blissful. I took along a book, some magazines and some needlework, but the most I managed to accomplish was to read a few National Geographic articles. I have little idea what happened in the world last week, and I don’t really care.
Based on that experience, I’m vowing to do the following now:
- Watch less television
- Surf the Internet less; specifically, I have a list of web sites that I visit pretty much daily. I’m removing a couple of those
- Spend more quiet time (facilitated by the previous two items)
- Read more
We’ll see how it goes…
