New trends for 2019
If an individual is fortunate and able to look out at the horizon - the sunrise and sunset fills the eye with beauty. Being at a place that has personal meaning such as the ocean, mountains, or garden can touch us emotionally. Engaging the five senses to reconnect with ourselves and our world on a daily basis is both healthy and healing.
I think some discipline around digital consumption and outside time. Having defined time periods (not too wide) for checking email, texts and whatever data sources one has the most attachment to is essential now with all the data on brain chemistry and the addictive nature of screen interaction. Pair this up with specified outside time with an activity focus (like others have mentioned already). I belong to a gym but before I go to the gym I ask the question - Is there something I can do outside that gives me just as much exercise? Substitute nature for tech wherever possible.
The main thing now is we need to disconnect from unnecessary rumors and news. So, mainly what we need to do is :
- Stop reading Newspaper in the morning, instead do meditation, listen to nice music and start your day fresh and positive.
- Stop Listening to News Channels where you only see fabricated news, most of the channels are Govts. Puppets and show you what they want you to believe.
- Digital Detox, very important. Go out in nature and see how beautiful the world is.
- Stop making kids, children to use online gaming, these games are worst enemies of our kids and society.
So, happy living and Peace.
Out in the garden, wrist deep in the soil. Chasing squirrels if they try to eat the heads from my tulips. Thinking about the taste of my fruit and veg just going into the garden now.
Get by the sea and breathe in the ozone. Eat an ice cream, paddle in the sea.
See, we managed a whole day without emails and mobile phones.It can be done!
