Week 8, 2/19/21-2/26/21: Listen to Music
When was the last time you listened to music? In the car? While you were cleaning? Maybe while you were scrolling through apps on your phone?
This week we are challenging you to just listen to music–not while you are doing something else, but as its own activity. This is called deep listening and it is surprisingly rewarding. Get your favorite album, turn off your phone, find a comfy chair, maybe a glass of wine, and just listen. Bonus points if you listen to vinyl.

Each week we’ll post an activity, task, or idea for something you can do that is screen-free. No phones, no tablets, no computers, no TV.
