The Slow Home

I had some extra time this morning and was able to catch up on a few podcasts. Slow Home is one of my favorites. (Thanks, Ashley, for the introduction!)

I'll be the first to admit, I'm obsessed with multi-tasking and checking my phone. Instagram, emails, texts, oh my! I have always liked feeling productive. Technology only encourages that addiction.

I found these two episodes on single tasking and unplugging especially helpful. I'd like to make a point to intentionally do both - in small ways - each day. I think it will help me become more patient and mindful as I continue figuring out work, life, and motherhood.

I'll start this evening by putting away my phone for an hour (remember, baby steps) and focusing on JUST preparing dinner without distractions. That means not switching out the laundry or changing the radio station.

Do you already practice either of these habits? Or are you interested in giving it a try? Do tell!
