May update

Hello friend!

A few weeks ago I was sitting on the tram and it was one of those rare occasions when I didn’t plug my hear with headphones. Thanks to this I was able to overhear an amazing and funny conversation between some kids sitting next to me.

This reminded me that very often when I don’t plug my ears and mind with something else I can experience the world around me in a whole different way and there is usually someting interesting or funny that catches my attention.

With this said I don’t mean that we should never use head phones. I love to listen to music and a good song can enhance an experience to another level. There is a lot to learn from podcast and sometimes is nice to just disconnect from the rest of the world and go into your own bubble.

As with most things we need to find our own balance between use and misuse. This is simply a reminder that there is a whole world out there to interact with. Personally I have a few guideline I try to follow;

  • Headphones are for the city. I usually listen to something when I commute either by tram/bus, bike or walking
  • When I get to the forest, for example if I run or walk, I take them out to experience the nature as it is

Something to watch

Something to read

Something to practice

Until next time

That was all for this time. I hope you found something you found interesting, maybe learned something new, forgot something old or got inspired in any other way. May you have a wonderful day and remember that only a fool knows everything
