Let’s face it, we live in a world with way too much going on. And guess what? We love it.
But I’ll let you in on a little secret, it’s not healthy for us. Not one bit.
Social Media, Email inboxes, iPhone push notifications, they’re all culprits. And the result of this world of noise we’ve created is the fact that most of of time is spent thinking. Thinking? Yes, thinking.
