Yesterday I listened to this podcast about the value of boredom. I found it very enlightening and something I will now pay attention to.
I loved how he is back to notebook and pen. When I was at my most stressed out, I would not go anywhere without paper and pencil. Sharpened pencils and a journal captured many years worth of releasing emotions and expressing feelings.
My job and the rural nature of my route takes me off the grid.
I do use my phone as a listening device for podcasts and books. I listen a lot.
I also use my phone as a camera.
What I do find though, while listening is often an emotional bubble arises.
I am wondering now, if I am processing life moments and not letting them pile up.
I love this idea that boredom and down time have a very important role in our lives.
I am betting that while I am out in nature, this too is an opportunity for our bodies to speak to us.
Another way to listen to your life, by disconnecting.
