Here's something to try out right now: stop what you're doing, sit back, close your eyes, relax, and focus on your breath for 20 breath cycles. Now open your eyes, how do you feel?
 
#Unplug from your daily life with meditation. Meditation can help us refocus after being distracted—which is an increasingly common peril of our technology-besieged lives.

+Basil Doeringsfeld, true that haha, gotta keep an eye on them! How about doing it with eyes open yet relaxed?

+Kika Mal, yes meditation music is great!

+François LaPlante, hmm, there are actually different breathing techniques and some may help with the congestion :) Have you noticed if one nostril tends to be congested more than the other? There are some interesting ideas relating to that.

Oh great +XiXi Zhai I also volunteered for a small library, I used to put all the books that were over-tattered and not useful to a box, then I took them down to the basement. I never threw out anything, just didn't have the heart for it  :( Good thing a basement store! It hides treasures! ^_^

The Future of Reading?

Want to experience the future of reading? Go to this link, and click the "click to spritz" icon at the top of the page:
http://www.spritzinc.com/the-science/

Spritz is a new company that believes it has a better way to read. After trying it, I actually think they might be right - at least for certain types of text. 

For each word, the eye seeks a certain point within the word, which we call the “Optimal Recognition Point” or ORP. After your eyes find the ORP, your brain starts to process the meaning of the word that you’re viewing.
...
When reading, only around 20% of your time is spent processing content. The remaining 80% is spent physically moving your eyes from word to word and scanning for the next ORP. 

Spritz works by eliminating the need for that eye movement. For me, it really sped up the reading process. What's more, it's a very compact UI, perfect for mobile devices. 

Check it out and let me know what you think. I'm curious.
