A Case For Mindfullness

Follow the breathe and let go...

To be truthful, I am a big fan of mindfullness. It’s the scientific word for mediation. I have to say it like that so my current employer doesn’t hit me with another drug test:

”We’ve been reading your blog, hippy. So pee in the cup. You ain’t in Denver.” 

I’ve been a fan so far. It’s very good at teaching me that I don’t need to react to the many thoughts in my head brought on by everyday life or just too much tea. 

I have an app on my phone called Mindspace. It has a narrator who sounds a lot more relaxed than I do.    Which leads me to believe he doesn’t have kids.

A lot of people feel they don’t have enough time to take 10 - 20 minutes out of your day to make this happen. I disagree. All you need are dark glasses and a company that likes to schedule too many meetings.  

History Of Rome Podcasts

There is no reason for anyone to listen to AM/FM radio. Not in a world where we have….PODCASTS. 

For those of you who have trouble setting your automatic coffee maker, (not being mean here…we all have different talents) - a Podcast is like your own radio show created around a subject. There are many ways to subscribe to them. Like this link here: https://www.tomsguide.com/us/pictures-story/555-best-podcast-apps.html

But I would like to shout out to a really interesting one regarding The History of Rome.  Mike Duncan has a new book coming out regarding the same subject. 

To be honest - I haven’t heard them all yet. But it’s worth a listen on your mobile device while you clean your house, garden, shopping, or need to pretend to pay attention to a loved one. 

Just a quick note to my friends and loved ones...

I finished playing Persona 5.

I will rejoin the human race and try my attempt at social links...I mean rejoin my loved ones and friends.

I loved this game. And I also know what it sounds like to the outside world. Japanese role playing games within a high school environment is a tough conversstion starter. It's on the same level as, "Oh, cool! You have an infectious disease too!"

And when your age is a few years shy of 50 - my daughter said it best. It's creepy. Well, I love good stories - and this one has it.  And if I have to wear the "Creepy" label so be it. It won't be as bad as accidentally walking into the wrong bathroom at an amusement park. Maybe...

Currently, I'm waiting in line to donate blood. And there's someone here from the Cleveland Browns to help push the sharing of plasma. Sadly, I have no ideas who he is or what he does - but I'm pretty sure he's never played Persona 5. So, I'm going to keep waiting in line. 

That is unless I want to go for the Platinum achievement on the Playstation which would mean another 4 months before I post again.
