Listen to your own heartbeat ... naturally

This week, it's a measure of quantity.

In the digital world, volume is difficult to perceive.

Our physical world provides consequential experience.

Vast amounts of data complicate our decision making.

Online consumption often leaves us over-filled.

More and more leaves us less room to relax.

Too much information can stuff our mind.

Quality is easier to see in offline spaces.

A clean environment clears our mind.

Time out to process is essential.

Knowledge is the outcome.

Where can we cut back?
