There are other (Drugs, pain, etc.) but the top three affect nearly everyone. Media stress is the modern affliction. 24 hr news cycles, repetitive disturbing images, sound bites, and social media. I see many patients so focused on their cell phones life passes them by. They are less productive, unfocused, and stressed by things outside their sphere of influence.
I think unplugging–routinely–is a good strategy.
What do you think? Is social media, TV, Cable, Satellite connectivity unbalancing your life?
Consider Media Fasting….love to hear if this helps you gain more piece of mind, productivity, and real connectedness in your life!
As always, leave comments, ask questions, share ideas!
