People do so little with their hands. Nowadays, they swipe their phones and tablets, tap their keyboards, and give their thumbs a workout on game controllers. But that’s about it.

I would encourage you to start doing more with your hands, especially if you want to be more productive.

Me? I love to draw. This is something that has fascinated, intrigued, and kept me captive since the moment I was born, although I’ve taken several extended breaks from it.

Nowadays, I draw almost every day, for about 30 minutes to an hour. Because I’ve been living nomadically, I use my iPad and Apple Pencil to draw, but in an ideal world, I would have a sketchbook.

Drawing gets me into flow. It’s as if everything around me completely disappears, even whatever concerns or worries I might have about the day. I get to focus on what I’m drawing and what I’m drawing alone. It offers a break from the many to-do items I’m faced with daily.

Do something with your hands. Draw. Paint. Sculpt. It will change your life.
