I recommend zoning out before you get to work

This morning’s train ride in (to work) was just over 30 minutes. Normal for a weekday morning, right before the morning rush. The train was almost empty the entire way. Best of all, I zoned out for all 30-plus minutes.

Sure, the headphones were in and there was music playing but, my mind was clear. There was no dwelling on today’s tasks and meetings, no worrying about the coding assignment (my final project) for school… no fretting over all of the things around the house that need to get done.

Just a blank mind, listening to music and staring off into space. It was wonderful.

//We all need more of this in our lives. If you haven’t already, I recommend listening to Note To Self’s Bored and Brilliant series. It has helped me a lot.
