I’ve wrote earlier on the ritual preparing and drinking of tea can be used as a training ground for getting present. And that the more present and “awake” we are, the better things get. Whether it’s tea or anything else you can find to wake up, I believe that we need all the weapons available to fight distraction.Whenever you’re doing something, anything, notice when the pull happens that nags on your attention.
Freedom and productivity arise by waking up to the pull of distraction. And let’s be honest, distraction is addictive because it feels good and pulls us away from the real challenges we have in life. But distraction also keeps us from living fully, doing great things with our time, and making a real difference in the world.
