Organizing My Mind: Week 2
What constitutes time off? It is not sitting at your computer and watching the World Cup, or videos of cats playing the piano. Time off is listening to music, going for a walk, exercising, viewing paintings — anything to get you away from your computer and that activates the so-called default mode network that I describe in THE ORGANIZED MIND: the part of your brain that engages in restorative, creative thinking.
