Side Benefits

This list from Nicholas Bate (a.k.a. The Incomparable Bate) on the side benefits of walking has sparked thoughts on other activities with side benefits. Consider the side benefits of:

  • Having a telephone/computer-free afternoon.
  • Working slowly.
  • Taking naps.
  • Reading for an hour each morning.
  • Reading a book a week.
  • Upgrading the way you dress for work.
  • Keeping your car clean.
  • Writing more thank-you notes.
  • Having a day in which speaking is kept to a minimum.
  • Gardening.
  • Visiting rather than emailing or telephoning clients.
  • Keeping a journal of aphorisms.
  • Setting aside an hour each week to go off somewhere and think.
  • Others?
