It’s not enough to just get out and look around mindlessly. You have to look up and down too. Mindfully. Be aware of every little thing. You’d be amazed how it gets you out of your own head and into the world around you.
Take off your sunglasses, get rid of the iPod, and get out. Out of the office, or the house, if for even ten minutes. The ten minutes you waste making excuses why you don’t have time.
“There’s nothing new to look at where I live,” you may say. That’s no excuse, I say. You just have to know where to look. Look up. Look down. You’d be surprised at how gorgeous something as simple as moss can be if you really want to see it. You just have to want to look.
