Podcast #768: Become a Focused Monotasker

Writing an email while on a Zoom call. Talking on the phone while walking. Scrolling through social media while watching a movie. In both our work and our play, we’re all doing more and more multitasking. Doing two things at once makes us feel as if we’re more efficient and getting more done. But my guest would say that all this task juggling actually makes us less productive, while diminishing the quality of our work and stressing our minds, and that we’d be better off curbing our multitaski...

ColourPop By the Rose Fresh Kiss Lip Lacquers Reviews & Swatches

First Glass ColourPop First Glass Fresh Kiss Lip Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium-dark peach with warm, brownish undertones and a cream finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which could have applied more evenly but had less streaking than I would have guessed by the feel and color. The texture was smooth, lightweight but slightly thicker in actuality, and while it didn’t emphasize lip texture, there w...

On the right track: how walking connects me to the land and its people

From the Himalayas to Palestine; north London to south Devon, hiking gives the film-maker and climate activist a sense of belongingFrom the age of eight, I attended a little boarding school on the Derbyshire-Staffordshire border where I’d often get in trouble on a Sunday afternoon. The teachers would leave us to roam the edge of the grounds where we were supposed to pass time making fires, toasting marshmallows or playing cricket but my habit was to set out over the fences and stiles into the la...

A moment that changed me: Ben Okri – realising my dream to become a novelist at the age of 19

I wrote the first draft in a ghetto in Lagos, working on it at 4am. With its publication the life I was meant to live beganFamily legend has it that I began reading the Times at around the age of four. At school in London I was that kid who stuck his hand up to read aloud from the Shakespeare play we were studying or to recite a poem. At secondary school, in Nigeria, literature was something I was negligently good at, but didn’t take seriously. Over the holidays I would visit the libraries of fo...
