When I was in third grade a Yo-Yo master (I assume that was his title, if not it should have been) came to our school. I don’t know why, other than maybe to sell
So we had this assembly, all of us were
Why are we talking about Yo-yo’s?
Because I think it’s important to have distractions. Things you do when you’re working on a hard problem. Fidget spinners are trendy for that now. My dogs won’t allow me to use them (funny story), so they’re out.
So I have my yo-yo. I’m working on picking it up more and just mindlessly yo-yo
Distractions are important. While you’re fidget spinning or yo-yo’ing or whatever’ing, your brain is still working. The more mindless the distraction the better, because it frees up your mind to wander and work out that knot of a problem on its own.
What’s your go-to distraction?
Oh, and no, I am not a yo-yo master, not even close.
