A pretty hefty title, right? Don't worry—I'm not going to start pretending I know how our brains work.
But I am going to share something fascinating that I read recently.
Hit the Reset Button in Your Brain, written by Daniel J. Levitin and posted on the New York Times site (thanks to Nicole Christie for posting a link on Twitter), makes a pretty strong argument for doing all those things we've all been avoiding or struggling with—checking email at set times, interacting on social media at set times, single-tasking, and giving our brains time off to daydream and make connections.
I've been focusing lately on simplifying and refining pretty much everything I can get my hands on, and this article has added even more fuel to that fire.
What about you? Are you already doing these things, or are you feeling overwhelmed and scattered?
I'd love to see any other resources you've found useful (here are some I recently shared).
