It occurred to me the other day that I’d had a podcast on for an hour and not taken in a single bit of information or followed the conversation – listening to podcasts has become a habit. I’ve lost the ability to just have some peace and quiet and time to shut myself off from having a constant stream of conversation in my ears.
I’m trying to be more intentional with my technology and breaking this habit has gone to the top of my list.
I’ve deleted overcast from my devices and going to take a month away from listening to podcasts.
It’ll be interesting to see how long I last and how much more music I enjoy again.
Where I’ll struggle is on walks and long drives but let’s at least give it a try.
