How to be alone in the company of other people!
I have a confession … sometimes I just want to be alone. This is ironic given the fact that I have a gaggle of children and live in one of the densest cities in the world. However, the genius of a large city is you can escape without ever leaving. Here is my secret to, in the midst of it all, being alone!
These well designed, inexpensive ($19.99), and nearly invisible ear plugs block out noise pollution allowing you to focus internally on what you are doing (being alone!). Recently I was sitting in the back of the plane where there seems to be a higher concentration of screaming babies. This is a very strange phenomenon, particularly given the fact that people can choose their own seats, but accept it as fact. To be clear, I love babies and it comes with the territory on commercial flights; however, what if I told you there was a device that blocked out the range of noises that babies made and the sounds of the jet engines? Well, there is and they are called Vibes! Additionally, they are perfect for a concert or an event (where the music is too loud and potentially damaging to your ears. Rather than shoving foam in your ears, you can wear this nearly invisible device which lowers the entire range of decibels from treble to bass, so you hear the music as it was intended. These will help you to be alone while in the presence of others!
