A Productive Wait

A person holding a smartphone while waiting at an airport.

What do you do when you find yourself in a line waiting for something or someone?

Do you pull out the phone to check social media and news, or do you try to spend it mindfully and productively?

Here are a few ideas:

  • Answer a few emails.
  • Write something.
  • Read something meaningful.
  • Connect with someone.
  • Relax and try to notice your surroundings and the people around you.

Much better than mindlessly scrolling and waiting for the time to pass.
