    I had decided to read this piece while eating my lunch today but when I came to the line about spending "more time choosing our meals than savoring them" I suddenly realized by trying to multi-task I actually was not paying full attention to savoring my meal so I decided to stop reading and just enjoy my food without distraction, and return to reading after I was done. This is not exactly the same situation as the article describes but it was about focusing on one thing at a time, being fully present with it, and not allowing something else we might also like to do distract us from the present activity.
