With worldwide news being instantly available to us on a 24/7 loop, and the vast majority of that information being bad news, it’s no wonder that a negative attitude towards many aspects of life has become a common and pervasive outlook in this modern age.
Most of us consume and consume and consume, from the moment we wake up until the final minutes before we go to bed.
Have you ever stopped for a second to think if there’s a better way to live?
Wouldn’t you agree that a life with a little less consumption would do our minds and souls a lot of good?
Imagine a life where we take a mental break from technology, even for just 30 minutes to an hour at first and expand from there, where we simply just exist and learn to recover from the unhealthy habit and addiction of needing to constantly grab our phones to check social media or the news every few minutes.
Why not try to pursue a healthier daily routine that is filled with extended periods of complete disconnection from the rest of the world, where you spend time intentionally existing in the present moment, self reflecting and discovering who you are, just to see how it makes you feel?
We call ourselves human beings, yet ever since smartphones and social media and push notifications came into our lives we rarely have even a split second of time to just “be”.
We are all attracted to the idea of having peace of mind, feeling more calm and composed (especially during stressful situations) and living in periodic states of joy and contentment, yet our actions typically push us further away from attaining them.
The solution isn’t complex.
Stop overdosing on consumption.
Take charge of your mind and your actions.
Make the time each day to do what nature has prescribed for us all.
With consistency, the results will forever change your life for the better.
“Disconnect with the world. Reconnect with yourself.”
