For day two of the Kindness Challenge (learn more here), participants were supposed to reduce screen time and spend a little time interacting with another person, taking a walk, reading a book, etc. I usually turn on my phone at lunch and check e-mail, play Words with Friends, or browse Pinterest and Instagram. Instead I left the phone off and chatted with a coworker while we ate and compared the books we’re currently reading. It was actually kind of…nice.
Quote for the day (from the daily challenge e-mail): “The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.” — Thoreau
