Infinite feeds are robbing the joy of your life
You get to switch contexts at an enormous pace and your brain gets hooked. Now, it always wants it, and we’re doomed!
But life happens in a slow pace.
It takes time for a flower to blossom It takes time …
It takes time to brew coffee It takes time to finish a book It takes time enjoy your meal
What do we do then? Pull out our phones and get back the dopamine kicking feeds. Insta & Twitter
I find myself guilty of - closing the app and opening it again immediately unconsciously.
Happens to you too?
Why are our brains wired like this? - Because we aren’t taking control
What can we do?
- Be okay with missing out
- Embrace long form content like books, podcasts etc
- Set your intentions with Social Media
- Use Lists instead of Twitter's default feed
An excellent summary of Digital minimalism by the man himself, Cal Newport - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsGKzjyj_6Q
No wonder why he isn't on social media.
