In the digital age of social media, we are bombarded by constant communications. We are gorging on the thoughts of others’, injected into our minds, every few minutes or hours a day. This isn’t just information overload, but a communications overload of other peoples’ thoughts, opinions, images, videos, ideas, philosophies, beliefs, values etc. Some of these communications may be good for you, some bad, but for the purpose of this post, it doesn’t really matter. What does matter, is that now more than ever we need to regularly create some space in our minds, so that our minds get a chance to breath throughout the day.
Yet time is of the essence in an age where everything is moving at the speed of light and we are left with less and less time. Meditation and mindfulness take time and discipline. It may only be 10 or 15 minutes a day, but when you’re time poor, committing to it everyday isn’t always easy. Yet the space in your mind is yours anytime, anywhere, anyhow you choose it. It takes nothing from your day at all. It’s meditation on the go. Simple, easy, effortless and at your fingertips. Perfect for our Digital Age.
As you go through your day, create space in your mind, as and when you choose, even if it’s just for a few seconds at a time. It will feel refreshing, like a mental mini-break!
Make a little space in your mind and take a mental breather.
