Soul-mending time

“So often we spend any spare moment stuck to a screen on social media or our news feed. Schedule time for being disconnected. Set your phone to ‘do not disturb’ and embrace the void by appreciating a sunrise or sunset, reading a book, or just staring off into space. Studies show our most creative moments happen during boredom.” ~Dr. Andrew Weil
