Quick – stop what you’re doing and go to the river. (Yes, you might need to make plans, but make sure they’re not too complicated. You should just go.)
Yep, you’re busy – you probably need a pause, and if you don’t have a river nearby then you should find the equivalent quiet place away from your electronic devices to take a pause. (Really, it’ll be fine. If a recovering electronic device addict like me can put down the phone for a few hours or a whole day so can you.)
Once you do that, cannonball into a high-bank deep river and just enjoy. (Especially the feeling of sand squishing between your toes.)
Ok, you can go back now. But wait a few minutes and think about the space that was created and the feeling and calm that existed while you weren’t finding out what else was going on in the world.
