"So much do we value busyness, researchers have found a human ‘aversion’ to idleness and need for ‘justifiable busyness"

The surprising irony here, for me at least, is that by doing less, I am getting way more out life. I have banished my inner robot.

It would not be an overstatement to say that an additional 40 minutes a day of walking just two or three times a week has changed me in a profound way. Walking provides time to think, to be energized by nature, and to feel less frenzied. Quite dramatically, I am much less of a robot and much more of a human being.

Great nuggets:
- being less busy will help you to be more productive
- bit in middle on ACT informs on how some people end up on an emotional loop, knowing how means you can learn how to overcome emotional traumas
- stay off social media (frees up a lot of time for me now)
- friendships are important!

"Seriousness is overrated, and I feel much healthier and even childlike when I am not taking myself so seriously"

A lot of truth in this

The truth cuts deep!

Busyness devoured my values. I was working, parenting, loving, emailing, and exercising in a sort of mindless way, just doing and doing. Busyness is not, nor was it ever, a guiding principle in my life.

I value the importance of relationships. I hate being busy just for the sake of filling the day with to-do's.

Seriousness is overrated, and I feel much healthier and even childlike when I am not taking myself so seriously, and when I am trying to make other people laugh.

I realized busyness had devoured my values

Ouch... 😥

Personal responsibility is the vehicle for behavior change. When it came to my busyness, though, I had what might be described as extreme difficulty looking beyond the hamster wheel.

Busyness devoured my values. I was working, parenting, loving, emailing, and exercising in a sort of mindless way, just doing and doing. Busyness is not, nor was it ever, a guiding principle in my life. Yet, I had let the inertia of doing take deep root without realizing what was happening to me

I like this a lot.....I agree, walking outdoors is like the best "tranquilizer" for me.....I have also since been questioning the amount of time I spend on FB.......the business of business needs to be defeated......to free up time for one to literally smell the roses on a daily basis.
