10:33 am
shared it personally, and you also haven't shared it with people who maybe they feel left out. how come you did that and you didn't tell me? you spoke about more time. i think it's also just more presence with yourself so you have a chance to notice things and if we're always like this, the whole world is out there. we're not listening. we're not looking. we're not just quiet with it. >> i have to say we talked about this. we've been, like, what do we do in cars? yesterday i was looking up instead of looking down because typically in cars i'm looking down, and i still am responding to emails, so there's some looking down, and i saw a friend on the street. >> through the window? >> i saw a friend on the street. >> good for you. >> we have more time to look around. we talked about more time to read, more time -- >> yes. >> i mean, what kind of things are people spending more time on? >> they're spending more time, first of all, just reflecting and seeing what it is they want because now you have had three months without this, and you can order your life in a way that it's not controlling you.
10:34 am
you can choose the kinds of ways you want to spend your time, with whom you spend your time, and people just spend hours and hours and the time goes by. >> seven hours? >> the numbers, the stats, are insane. i mean, i found myself looking at andy cohen's page because i like it. oh, look, andy is in st. bart's. oh, he looks good. my god, 20 minutes is by. what are you doing? >> then people say i don't have the time. wait a minute. you do, but you have to be more engaged, more involved in choosing how you want your life to be. >> i don't think it affects us. it didn't really change our mood, but it can. can you tell? >> absolutely. first of all, most people don't post when they're not looking so great. they post when they're having a great time, when they're in a beautiful place and with their family. most of us are sitting there in our pajamas and saying they have supper a good life. how come i'm not doing that? or in the holidays in particular when people have a tendency t
10:35 am
one, aren't there, where they aren't. they're thinking it's going to be so much better if i could only do that rather than here i am, stay with that emotion and say how can i change where i am if i need to? >> i was saying on vacation, like, you talked about that i couldn't -- i couldn't go totally cold turkey because i was in a place in indonesia that i had to be able to get around, but what i didn't do, it didn't come out for meals. there were no personal interaction to anyone. it was just when i needed it. i have to say now, you can't because you have kids, but when i go out to dinner at night, since i have been back, it stays at home. you itch for it, but i get home. there's three or four or ten emails. then you respond. you don't have to respond immediately. >> that's a good point. as a mom we do leave. harry and i are both doing it. our phones in our bedrooms when we're with kids. it's too easy to look. >> the kids then get the message that they are more important than whatever is going on here.
