Somewhere in the late 20th century we got the idea that busyness is a virtue. We decided that the more activities we can squeeze into our lives, the happier we’ll be. What ultimately results, though, is physical and spiritual exhaustion. We jump from one appointment to another, our body and mind racing. We schedule events back to back and overlapping, with no time to rest or reflect. And when we are in one activity, we’re either distracted with the thing we’ve just done or the thing that’s coming up. It’s not a good way to live.
