donhornsby's curator insight, May 28, 9:19 AM

(From the article): Take a noise retreat. Even if you can’t cut down on the noise in your daily life, you can find periods of respite. For me, that’s still escaping to my uncle’s farm, to the beach, or to the North Georgia mountains. For others, it’s taking advantage of “silent retreats,” where participants go to actively avoid speaking or experiencing other man-made sounds. Ecologist Gordon Hempton has found only 12 spots in the U.S. free of human-made noise for intervals of 15 minutes or more, but there are a number of resorts that promise as much escape from noise as possible without a long hike into the Alaskan wilderness.

It’s ironic that, as more of our tasks become mental, our environments make the concentration so necessary for intellectual labor more difficult. The noise permeating our environments can impact our health, concentration, and happiness. As silence becomes rarer and more valuable, we’d be wise to seek it out.

What do you mean, you don't have time? Time is a matter of priorities...

Ellen Naylor's curator insight, May 28, 1:06 PM

I love the idea of taking a noise retreat when I go into the city. Were I working in a large office in the common cube environment, I would be taking noise breaks. Regardless, I like taking mindfulness breaks during the day. They help me get back on task if I have wondered.

(Kevin Systrom/Instagram) The honor of being in the first Instagram snap, which was posted four years ago today, went to co-founder Kevin Systrom’s dog.


The pet pooch is so cute that she didn’t even need one of Instagram’s now ubiquitous filters. At the time, the photo sharing network hadn’t gone public and went by a different moniker: Codename, according to a post on the company’s website from two years ago.


Instagram launched to the public in October 2010 and now boasts more than 200 million active members per month, according to the company.


An average of 60 million photos are uploaded every day…
