In the digital age of social media, we need space in our minds more than ever

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 seconds or minutes 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 create space in our minds and let our minds breath frequently 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 could be tricky. 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. Meditation for our New Media age. Simple, easy, effortless and at your fingertips. Just when we need it most.

So let there be space in your mind just for a few seconds at a time. As you go through your day, create space in your mind, as and when you choose. Space in your mind is having no thought. In other words it’s meditation that you do on the go. How refreshing and avant-garde!

Let there be space in your mind.
