When was the last time you sat still? Do you remember what it feels like to wait patiently?
Sat alone at a table, alone outside, waiting for a friend, it feels awkward to just stand or sit.
So we pull out our phones, fiddle with our things, pretend to be busy.
We open new tabs while we wait for the first one to load.
But it is so much more restful, calm, and mindful to simply be. Look at your surroundings instead of scrambling to distract yourself from them.
When I remember to do this, I feel wonderful.
P.S. There isn’t room…
