When I worked in a professional services firm, being “busy” was worn like a badge of honour. When asked how people were, “busy” was the usual response. With exchange of pleasantries, the usual question asked was “Are you busy?”
I used to think busyness was over-rated. I’ve since discovered, there’s an upside to it!
Keep yourself busy if you want to avoid depression. For me, inactivity is the enemy.

Your attention determines the experiences you have, and the experiences you have determine the life you live.
Managing your attention is important to learning and productivity. With the many distractions that abound from electronic and social media, this can be a real challenge.
