As usual, a great piece by Craig Mod. In this case though, he took 28 days away from the internet to prepare:
Attention is a muscle. It must be exercised. Though, attention is duplicitous—it doesn't feel like a muscle. And exercising it doesn't result in an appreciably healthier looking body. But it does result in a sense of grounding, feeling rational, control of your emotions—a healthy mind. Our measuring sticks for life tend to be optimized for material things, things easy to count. Houses, cars, husbands, babies, dollar bills. Attention is immaterial, difficult to track.
We deserve our attention.
He pulls in a few fascinating quotes from others and gives some practical advice that you can put into practice right away.
