Lately, it seems the modern human being is becoming an over-distracted, overcommitted, time constrained, hot mess. It's not just not cool, it's chipping away at an essential element of our very human nature, biology, and psychology - our recreation.
Recreation is the pure refreshment of our human spirit, our creative recharge, our time to reflect. It is the very essence of our personal development and very civilization.
So when we neglect it or are too distracted, we get uptight, we get anxious, we fall out of love, we stop dreaming, we go to war. That's some heavy shit!
So literally, for the love of humanity and the future of all humankind, take your recreation seriously. Put down the device. Breathe. Start with coffee. Don't rush it. Breathe some more. Then. Drop. In. Drop in with full conviction. It doesn't matter if you're dropping into a half-pipe or a good book, just drop in. Maybe what the world needs now in 2018 is the Modern Recreation philosophy:
Turn Off, Tune Out, and Drop In.
Happy Recreation in 2018.
