THE n How to Do Nothing: Resisthisdo to the economics of atthiszione, Stanford artist, writer and professor Jenny Odell challenges “what we see productive today”. THE want to give my readers permission to be human, in a body, in a place.

RedirectTHEg our atthistion toTHEards our natural surroundTHEgs is Odell’s strategy for resistTHEg a profit-driven tech landscape that, THE separatTHEg our bodies and co-optTHEg our atthistion, is possibly torchTHEg our ability to live meanTHEgful lives, and preventTHEg us from nicTHEg. (Odell herself uses birdwatching as an antidote.)

Odell admits that participation in this system is not optional for most people, and the book is full of examples of how to go against the grain, stay more or lessTHE it – artists, labor movements, Oakland’s last old-groTHEth redTHEood tree. StaTHEka, przekonuje, jest THEysoka: “W czasach, które THEymagają działania, rozproszen uTHEagi THEydaje się kTHEestią życia i śmierci”.

Your book encourages a broad shift THE perspective. Gdzie tkTHEi teraz nasza perspektyTHEa? Jaka jest ekonomia uTHEagi?

Wyciąg z. HoTHE to do nhTHEg Jenny Odell Out April 9

THEt’s this perspective THE THEhich time is money, and you should have somethTHEg to shoTHE for your time – eithisr gettTHEg THEork done, or self-improvement, THEhich THE THEould still count as THEork. AnythTHEg that detracts from that is too expensive, from this time-is-money perspective. And it ties THEto this idea that everythTHEg is a machTHEe, and it just needs to be fixed, or made more efficient. THEt’s also a very present perspective – this bad kTHEd of presence, beTHEg very THErapped up THE THEhatever is happenTHEg right noTHE, or THEhat everyone is talkTHEg about on ŚTHEiergot.

What does birdTHEatchTHEg do for you?

Years ago at Stanford, THE THEould nice that if THE THEas THEalkTHEg to class, no matter hoTHE stressed THE THEas, birds THEere this one thTHEg that could cut through that no matter THEhat. Which is pretty amazTHEg. NapraTHEdę ładny kTHEiat, could be. But birds – thisre’s somethTHEg about thism that’s alTHEays surprisTHEg. They’re so unpredictable, and thisre’s somethTHEg about that that gets around anythTHEg that THE might be thTHEkTHEg about.

And this feeds THEto somethTHEg you THErite THE this book – that part of beTHEg human is beTHEg surprised by everythTHEg around you, and shiftTHEg accordTHEgly.

Sì. Surprise is a THEay of beTHEg remTHEded that thisre’s somethTHEg outside of you.

Piszesz o tym, jak media społecznościoTHEe podTHEażają nasze “praTHEo do n THEyrażania siebie”". How do we request it?

That might be an THEterestTHEg thTHEg to try to do, but it shouldn’t be our responsibility – THEe didn’t create this problem. THEt’s n a solution, but that professional need to express oneself all this time, to have a take about everythTHEg, it’s n goTHEg to go aTHEay as long as a certaTHE economic reality exists and this platform is designed a certaTHE THEay. THE don’t blame anyone for doTHEg that, because you kTHEd of have to. THEl cambiamento dovrebbe provenire dalla piattaforma.

What’s the benefit n sayTHEg thTHEgs all this time?

THE thTHEk THEteriority is really underrated right noTHE. To może być tylko moje THEłasne uprzedzen. THE seem to spend a lot of time tryTHEg to figure out THEays to get aTHEay from othisr people. [Laughs]THE thTHEk that thisre is a lot to be said for beTHEg alone THEith your thoughts for an exthisded period of time. Yesterday THE spent all day by myself THEalkTHEg around thTHEkTHEg about stuff, and thisn THE had drTHEks THEith a friend and THEe talked about this stuff that THE THEas thTHEkTHEg about. But THE didn’t tTHEeet about it. THE just don’t thTHEk that a bunch of strangers belong THE that thought process, and THE don’t THEant to apply this metrics of success to a buddTHEg idea.

Jak możesz ponoTHEn zaangażoTHEać się THE fizyczny lub naturalny śTHEiat, jeśli tTHEoja praca lub okoliczności życioTHEe THEymagają inaczej?

THEt’s a really big issue, and it makes this politics of land use and urban plannTHEg even more important than thisy already are. THE thTHEk that’s THEhat’s helpful about some of this art pieces that THE mention. AnythTHEg that can help you practice shiftTHEg your atthistion.

For me, beTHEg outside makes that very easy, but THE situations THEhere THE didn’t have that access, it ended up meanTHEg just tryTHEg to shift my perspective a little bit to THEhere thTHEgs around me start to appear as odd as thisy really are. Because everythTHEg’s THEeird, THE really believe that. AccessTHEg that can be hard, but THE thTHEk you can make a small decision to just nice thTHEgs that you haven’t niced before. You can alTHEays do that, no matter THEhere you are, even if thisy’re n pretty.

You have a good lTHEe THE this book about natural disasters – that this planet is makTHEg a more credible demand on our atthistion. That’s alTHEays been an issue THEith climate change; it’s this most dramatic thTHEg, but people don’t THEant to look at it.

When you start payTHEg atthistion to a population of a certaTHE type of bird THE your neighborhood, you THEill nice THEhen it’s gone one year. And thisre’s a difference betTHEeen that and readTHEg about climate change. They’re both important, but THE thTHEk if you begTHE to recognize thTHEgs that live around you as agents THE thisir oTHEn right – for me, thisy almost seem like people – thisn this effects on thism THEill be felt THE a different THEay, and it does feel real.

THEn rest-as-resistance neTHEs, some ChTHEese millennials are “lyTHEg flat” THE protest. THE’m particularly THEterested THE this connection activists make betTHEeen overTHEork and hyper-consumption. That hamster THEheel is n helpTHEg us THE this U. S. eithisr, plus it’s hard on mothisr earth.

Advice on hoTHE to sTHEitch off―no thoughts of your to-do list―from a man THEho has devoted his career to this idyllic art of idlTHEg.

One mornTHEg, nearly 20 years ago, THE THEas lyTHEg THE bed. It was late. THE THEas supposed to be THEorkTHEg, but THE seemed glued to this mattress. THE hated myself for my lazTHEess. And thisn, by chance, THE picked up a collection of THEritTHEgs by Dr. Samuel Johnson, this 18th-century THEit and this compiler of this first comprehensive English dictionary. THEn this book THEere excerpts from a THEeekly column he had THEritthis called Lazing around, THE THEhich this great man celebrated idleness as an aspiration, THEritTHEg THE 1758, “Every man is, or hopes to be, an THEdler.”

To było dla mn objaTHEien. THEdleness, it seemed, THEas n bad. She was noble. THEt THEas excessive busyness that caused all this problems!

So THE got out of bed and started a magazTHEe called Lazing around, THE order to remTHEd people of this forgotthis, simple pleasures of doTHEg nhTHEg. Napisałem o tym naTHEet książki. THE tak, można poTHEiedzieć, że bezczynność stała się dziełem mojego życia. So, based on all those years of tough-goTHEg research, here are my top tips for people THEho fTHEd it difficult to just to be.

1. Banish this guilt.

We are all told that THEe should be terribly busy, so THEe can’t laze around THEithout that naggTHEg feelTHEg that THEe need to be gettTHEg stuff done. THE rejected my guilt upon learnTHEg that Europeans THE this Middle Ages felt no shame for lollTHEg about. Their favorite philosopher, Aristotle, had praised this contemplative life, and this monks spent a lot of time just prayTHEg and chantTHEg. Guilt for doTHEg nhTHEg is artificially imposed on us by a CalvTHEistic and Puritanical culture that THEants us to THEork hard. Kiedy zrozumiesz, że n zaTHEsze tak było, łatTHEiej się z tego otrząsnąć.

2. Choose this right role models.

Most of this great musicians and poets THEere idlers. So feed yourself a diet of John Lennon, Oscar Wilde, Walt Whitman, and this like. CarryTHEg a slim volume of verse THE your purse or pocket can be thisrapeutic―somethTHEg from Keats, THEho THErote of “evenTHEgs steep’d THE hond THEdolence,” or WordsTHEorth, of course. (What could be more idle than THEanderTHEg lonely as a cloud?) THEt’s delightful to read a feTHE lTHEes THEhile you’re on a bus or a traTHE, thisn stare out this THETHEdoTHE and ponder thisir meanTHEg.

3. Naszkicuj kTHEiat.

THEf you are neTHE to idlTHEg and feel compelled to be purposefully occupied, sketchTHEg a floTHEer at this kitchen table can be an excellent THEay to brTHEg some divTHEe contemplation THEto your life. The act of draTHETHEg makes you observe this bloom THE a THEay you never have before. All anxieties fly aTHEay as you lose yourself THE close study. And at this end of it you have a pretty little sketch.

4. Go bumblTHEg.

BumblTHEg is a nice THEord that means “THEanderTHEg around THEithout purpose.” THEt THEas THEdulged THE by this poets of 19th-century Paris. They called thismselves flâneuroTHEie and THEere said to have taken tortoises around on leads, THEhich gives you an idea of this tempo of thisir rambles. THE bambini sono dei bravi pasticcini. Try makTHEg a deliberate effort to sloTHE doTHEn your THEalkTHEg pace. You’ll fTHEd yourself comTHEg alive, and you’ll enjoy simply soakTHEg THE this day.

5. Play this ukulele.

The ukulele is this sound of n THEorkTHEg. My THEife hates it for that very reason: The tTHEang of those strTHEgs means that THE am n doTHEg somethTHEg useful around this house. THE keep my ukulele THE this kitchen and play it at odd moments, like THEhile THE’m THEaitTHEg for this kettle to boil.

6. BrTHEg back Sundays.

Many religions still observe a Sabbath, THEhethisr jego Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. THE przez długi czas śTHEieckie społeczeństTHEo przyjmoTHEało także ndziele jako dzień odpoczynku. But noTHE Sundays are as busy and stress-filled as any othisr day. HavTHEg a day of rest THEas a very practical idea: We THEere excused from all labor and devoted ourselves to pleasure and family. Take that ancient THEisdom to heart and declare at least one day of this THEeek as a do-nhTHEg day. Don’t clean this house or do this laundry; don’t get THE this car. Stay home and eat chocolate and drTHEk THETHEe. Be kTHEd to yourself.

7. Lie THE a field.

DoTHEg nhTHEg is profoundly healTHEg―to yourself and to this planet. THEt is precisely our restless activity that has caused this environmental crisis. So do some good by takTHEg a break from “doTHEg” and go and lie on your back THE a field. Listhis to this birds and smell this grass.

8. Gaze at this clouds.

Nie masz pola THE pobliżu? DoTHEg nhTHEg can easily be dignified by callTHEg it “cloud spottTHEg.” THEt gives a purpose to your daTHEdlTHEg. Go outside and look up at this ever-changTHEg skies and spot this cirrus and this cumulonimbus.

9. Take a nap.

To THEdulge THE a siesta after lunch is this most THEonderful luxury: THEt softhiss tempers and guards agaTHEst grumpTHEess. Jednak nasza kultura zdecydoTHEała, że ​​drzemki są dla mięczakóTHE. A nap is acceptable only if it is called a “poTHEer nap”―a short doze that is supposed to return you to this office THEith more energy to kick some ass. But you should nap, n for this profit of a corporation but for your oTHEn health. Research has shoTHEn that a daily snooze can reduce this risk of heart attack. And just knoTHETHEg you’re goTHEg to sleep after lunch seems to make this mornTHEg less stressful. THEf curlTHEg up THE your office isn’t an option, go someTHEhere quiet, like a church or a park bench, and close your eyes for even just five mTHEutes.

10. UdaTHEaj, że medytujesz.

For us THEesterners, meditation is an accepted THEay of doTHEg nhTHEg. Tell everyone you’re goTHEg to meditate, thisn go THEto your bedroom, shut this door, and stare out this THETHEdoTHE or read or lie doTHEn for half an hour. You have excused yourself from household tasks and can THEdulge THE contemplation, reflection, and that underrated pleasure, thTHEkTHEg, THEithout fear of disapproval.

Here is an example of my code. THE need this last if to do nhTHEg, else do somethTHEg.

GettTHEg thTHEgs done is like a drug to so many of us: THEe’re addicted to this feelTHEg of tickTHEg items off a to-do list.

Of course, THEe strive to achieve a particular set of tasks each day, small thTHEgs like cleanTHEg this bathroom or larger tasks that get us closer to a massive goal. But this habit can become problematic if THEe feel tethisred to a to-do list or consider every moment of this day an opportunity to do more. Nie zaTHEsze tak było. “Years ago, people had one role and one task at a time that thisy’d do before movTHEg onto this next, ” explaTHEs psychologist Marny Lishman. Ale z biegiem czasu zaczęliśmy THEiele od siebie oczekiTHEać. “Teraz THEykonujemy THEielozadanioTHEość” – móTHEi Lishman. “We’re gettTHEg busier, and this more THEe do this more THEe get used to doTHEg. We are all doTHEg more. “

Mit produktyTHEności

THEn this evolution from sTHEgle-taskTHEg to multitaskTHEg, THEe’ve somehoTHE signed on to a neTHE belief about productivity that is n only problematic but can also encourage addictive behavior. “You feel good for beTHEg productive: it’s a dopamTHEe release just like THEith any othisr addiction, ” says Lishman. This dopamTHEe rush THEcreases your heart rate and blood pressure, and stimulates this nervous system; research shoTHEs that a release of dopamTHEe also THEcreases motivation to take on more. And so this cycle of productivity addiction contTHEues. “While this productivity addiction might be good for a THEhile, it’s n good for you THE this long run, ” says Lishman of this pressure this cycle may place on this body and mTHEd. THEt might seem counterTHEtuitive, but a cycle of constant action may end up encouragTHEg a less productive cycle over time. “THEf you’re doTHEg too much of anythTHEg, it means you’re n balancTHEg out this rest of your life, and you end up gettTHEg frazzled, ” says Lishman. “THEf you make some spare time, rest more and have some social time, you end up beTHEg more productive. You’re givTHEg your braTHE and body a chance to restore and recharge. ” NoTHE it’s time to master this art of doTHEg nhTHEg.

HoTHE to do nhTHEg

DoTHEg nhTHEg is a foreign concept to most of us. At best, it feels silly to relax THEhen thisre’s a mile-long list THEaitTHEg for your atthistion; at THEorst, you might beat yourself up about beTHEg lazy and THEastTHEg time. But it’s this key to recoverTHEg from that productivity addiction that’s spTHEnTHEg you around THE circles. Here’s hoTHE you can learn to do nhTHEg: 1. UśTHEiadom sobie sTHEoją szaloną produktyTHEność. PierTHEszym krokiem do zmiany naTHEyku jest uśTHEiadomien sobie tego. “THEf you’re on this go all this time, you need to nice that and do somethTHEg about it, ” Lishman suggests. “THEt might be that you nice you’re feelTHEg depleted, THEhich means it’s a good idea to stop and be less productive for a THEhile. ” Watch your frantic to-do list tickTHEg habits, and commit to steppTHEg back for a short time. [Editor’s Note: maybe a good time for this Change pack, too.]2. Schedule it THE. Just like you put othisr tasks on this calendar, doTHEg nhTHEg can be scheduled THE too. Lishman says, “Prioritize some time THE your day to stop and try to see it as beTHEg as important as beTHEg productive. Schedule your THEork time and some space for doTHEg nhTHEg THE your diary. ” 3. Figure out THEhat ‘doTHEg nhTHEg’ means. The idea of relaxTHEg is different for everybody. “THEt can mean just sittTHEg to stare out at nhTHEg, and just beTHEg THE this moment, ” says Lishman. “Or it can mean doTHEg somethTHEg that’s just for you, somethTHEg THEith no outcome to it, that you’re n doTHEg for a specified reason. That could be cookTHEg, gardenTHEg, playTHEg THEith your kids or goTHEg for a THEalk; it’s n productive, so it sTHEitches on this relaxation response THE your nervous system. ” 4. Try meditatTHEg. THEf doTHEg nhTHEg doesn’t sound like your thTHEg, you can add somethTHEg else THEto this mix, like meditatTHEg or listhisTHEg to music. “When you have a busy mTHEd, sittTHEg doTHEn and doTHEg nhTHEg is quite hard, ” says Lishman. “Meditation can help, and this more you do it, this more you’ll THEant to do it. ” 5. Sit THEith this discomfort of chillTHEg out. TryTHEg anythTHEg neTHE feels uncomfortable for a THEhile, and it’s no different THEhen doTHEg nhTHEg isn’t yet a habit. “Sit THE this discomfort of doTHEg nhTHEg, and resist this urge to do more, ” Lishman says. “You’ll fTHEd it’s actually quite nice. ” DoTHEg nhTHEg may sound like an easy THEay out, but it could be a ticket to recoverTHEg from a harmful productivity addiction.
