Dull the senses

Alcohol dulls the senses. Movies dull the senses. Scrolling Twitter dulls the senses. These things relieve excess brain action, distracting us from the honesty of focus.

We don't like to be stranded alone with our own thoughts because we're scared of what they might say. But a little movement helps tame the monkey mind.

“To you, clerk, literary man, sedentary person, man of fortune, idler, the same advice. Up!” — Walt Whitman

That is to say, go for a walk. Take acknowledgment of the senses. Whatever exercises the body, relieves the mind.
