Day 30 – Distraction-Free Dinner

by Dan


For today’s Daily Act of Simplification I have taken the decision that I will not take any mobile communications devices to the dinner table. Phone, iPad, Blackberry – all three would often be on the table ready to distract me from food and conversations about the day. Not any more! Through this process I am discovering that a key way to keep life simple is to bring presence and focus to the activity at hand, free from the symptoms of Continuous Partial Attention. This is another step in that direction.
