Just Eat and Read

In Chapter 8 ("Tools for Sharpening Your Mindfulness Skills") of Toni Bernhard's How to Wake Up, the discussion "Cut Back on Multitasking" concludes with a funny-insightful tale about Seung Sahn, a Korean Zen master:

... A woman came into a room at his Zen center in Providence, Rhode Island, and saw him eating breakfast while reading the morning newspaper. She said, "But master, you said that when eating we should only eat, and when reading we should only read!" He looked up and laughed: "When you eat and read, just eat and read."
