My two cents on stuff

A lifestyle of distractions

This comment puts so succinctly what is a clear problem for many:

The problem with the modern lifestyle is you probably go from morning radio to podcast in car to Facebook, to work and Reddit during breaks and then back home to the TV. There are few opportunities for quiet reflection so is there any surprise that the first moment there are no distractions (once your head hits the pillow on your bed) you would start having your inner dialogue?

It’s one of the reasons why I typically don’t listen to music throughout the day… just a few songs here and there. In the car I actually prefer silence (unless it’s a really long drive). I can’t imagine piling a musical backdrop on top of all the noise and distractions we already have throughout the day.

Quiet reflection is important. So is simply - quiet.
