Being present is difficult in today’s distracting environment. Try this the next time you sit down for a meal, before you take that first bite. Turn off all screens. Place your phone in another room.

I have nothing to say today. I guess that in itself says a lot. It’s days like this that I just stay quiet. Seems these days are multiplying. Don’t misunderstand, I’m not depressed. I’m happy and at peace. This peaceful mood I’m in is also quiet and thoughtless because my mind is at peace. First … Continue reading I Got Nothing
I started practicing mindfulness. It’s basically turning your mind to what you are doing. Focus on the task at hand. Pay attention in all things.

For me I roll dice in table top games like D&D, Warhammer 40k and others. As adults we forget how to use our imagination. We forget … Continue reading What’s your game?
