Habituation is our tendency to get used to things. Whether we’ve noticed it or to, the likelihood for the majority of us in this pandemic is we have become used to a limited way of moving through the day-to-day, and that will mean we’re missing an awful lot.
Rob Walker offers us a simple way of awakening our noticing to more, by naming a trio of things we take for granted, or that others do but we don’t.**
This kind of thing always gets me thinking about what we’re missing about our lives: our values, talents and energies. It’s worthwhile nothing these if we want to leave chronic habituation behind. I’m offering a Thin|Silence special online for this. Watch this space.
