Not being distracted all the time is much easier now that I spend so little time in social media platforms but it is still a struggle.

The inclination to reach for my phone, or a book, rather than just sitting is still almost irresistible. Doing nothing, really nothing, is hard. This is why meditation is hard, why yoga is hard.

When we try doing nothing our mind screams out for entertainment, for something to chew on, something to avoid it having to just sit there and be still.
