4 Healthy Third World Habits




3. Unplug. Many people in third world countries don’t own computers, cell phones, or televisions — and don’t have a reliable power grid to support whatever electronics they do have. Think: if you didn’t own these devices, you would have a whole lot more free time. Just like that, your distracted, multitasked life would go quiet.

Granted, you probably wouldn’t be able to do your job or any of the millions of other legitimately wonderful things that you can accomplish thanks to today’s mobile devices. But what if you unplugged after 8:00 p.m.? Or on the weekends? Figure out how to squeeze some unplugged hours into your schedule. Then relish the mental peace and quiet.
