Headphones on, the mobile telephone rings, text messages buzz in, emails pile up, television or YouTube blaring, notifications of Skype are going mad - such are the sounds of modern life.
It's all a bit too much, really. Media and sensory overload, being busy busy busy; it's no wonder so many of us walk around looking utterly exhausted.
How about the concept of doing absolutely nothing? And by nothing, I mean turning the music off, stepping away from the computer, and putting all of your modern gadgetry away.
