A Pen & Paper

Spend just a few minutes a day writing with a pen (or pencil) and paper.

You know, physical paper.

You can write anything. Write your daily to-do list, or ten ideas, or a blog post, or three things which you are thankful for … even the alphabet. It doesn’t matter what.

What matters is that those few minutes spent not typing can put all of that time which you will spend typing today in perspective.

And believe me, I type a lot. There’s no getting around it, or need to.

The thing that’s missing if you only type, however, is the thing that you need when the power goes out.

To not be out of touch with the physical world. (And by extension, yourself.)
