The habit of re-centering yourself

Criticizing technology is popular as over-use has negative consequences.  But since technology IS an integral part of our lives, using it to serve us seems wiser than protesting it.

I’m a big fan of the Breathe app, which lets me customize reminder messages to myself throughout the day, like “stop and breathe for 10 seconds”.  Now that it’s actually programmed, re-centering myself went from something I knew was a useful (often ignored) task, to one that’s actually a habit I repeat at 5 times per day.

Knowing what’s important isn’t enough – habits make us.  Let’s use technology to foster the good ones.
