Yes, we recommend that at least 10% of your ‘working time’ (and more if you can swing it) should be devoted specifically to play. Talk to someone new. Go for an afternoon walk in the sun. Take an extra long lunch break. Take the long way to work. Pick up that book that you’ve been dying to read. Leave the office. Get out from behind your computer screen. Go see a speech. Learn something new and seemingly unrelated. Relax a little.

Why? Because no matter how fun and engaging your day-to-day work activities can be, the best ideas are those that come when they’re not forced. This play time is important for growth. It allows us to process, and opens us up to new experiences. We all need rest and play. It ultimately makes our work better, our jobs easier, and our lives more fulfilling.

Good Food Jobs (via introverdict)

My name is Shayla and I talk about food. A lot. I live in Brooklyn, NY where I work as a data nerd in the startup world. As much as I wish I could say I've been a healthy vegetarian for the past 8 years, I can't. I started off as many veg's do: eating primarily processed soy products, pasta, and pizza. I also brought meat back into my diet when I started a job in catering. When I realized that cutting out meat didn't make me feel any better and I was still gaining weight, I decided I needed to make some major changes. I started experimenting and researching; I found that the fresher the food was, the more I enjoyed it. I believe we are what we eat. How we feel and what we eat is so profoundly interconnected. It's impossible to exclude factors like diet and lifestyle when you are trying feel better overall. I understand how difficult eating (or just finding) healthy food can be which brings me to this blog. I aspire to help people make healthy living easier. 2birds1scone is a place for suggestions, inspiration and shared information. It's about bringing healthier perspectives to every part of your life. Please feel free to submit your thoughts and recipes! Namaste. "One choice at a time, with intention and compassion for our selves and our planet, we can eat clean and live well." -Terry Walters
