Headphones are great–I wear them all the time. But I don’t wear them when I’m around other people, because you never know who might be trying to talk to you.
Yesterday I tried to have a conversation with an athlete wearing headphones. She didn’t hear me the first time, so I stopped trying. Connection lost.
I don’t think we need more stimulation in our lives. Between music, television, social media, and pornography, our brains are way more stimulated than they were designed to be.
We don’t need more stimulation, but we can always use more connection.
