Mind suck, brain drain, mental eruption, cranium crunch, haywire, loose wire, smokin eardrums, egg in a frying pan.....any questions?
I was passed an article on technology and its effects on the human mind. It stated that our focus is being directed to all of our gadgets on a continual basis to a point where we are actually rewiring our brains. We are developing shorter attention spans along with quick bursts of thought as we shift from emails to websites to phone calls & facebook. It warns that we are loosing the best of ourselves, our creative thought, our mental clarity and cerebral freedom.
I totally get this. I bounce from work cell to personal cell and always have a watchful eye for that flashing message indicator light. Did someone text, call or email?
The article suggests dedicating a certain amount of time a day away from these gadgets, a simple 1 hour excursion for personal meditation w no phone, tv, or internet can and will help regain & awaken our natural thoughtful & creative inner being.
Lets Start Now:
Lets Start Now:
- walk on your tippy toes

- start a craft project with macaroni shells
- Imagine you have amnesia and look for ways to survive in the environment around you.
Omgoodness, I think I like this idea. A funny comedian once said bout Fred Flintstone's wife. "Loosen the bone Wilma", suggesting that she let her hair down a relax. So with that, I remind myself to put down the phone, free my mind & loosen my bone.
