Get a smartphone
No matter where you are or what you’re doing you will always be able to occupy yourself in a wonderful variety of ways.
You got your phone, email, song library, camera, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pandora, podcasts, Angry Birds, weather radar, TED videos, sports blogs, news, plus anything that pops into your head you can immediately research to discover that the movie with the circus horse that jumped off the tower into the water was called “Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken.”
In line at the DMV, the Walgreens, the stop light (honk!)? Waiting at the doctors office or in the car while hubby runs into Home Depot? You’ll never complain about any long wait again.
AND, best of all, you’ve got a built in distraction to keep you from #2.
Embrace the reason you were put on this earth.
Not sure what that reason is? #1 can keep you distracted from discovering that, too.
