I am not one to bash social media, Netflix, or any of the things we use to work, be informed, or entertained.
However, I believe we all need a filtering mechanism for all of the data that we receive all day.
Between our email, the radio, tv, and the social medias, even the most positive of timelines can leave us overwhelmed, confused, and frustrated. (If not with others, than with ourselves and all of the things we “should” be doing to be more successful.)
Hearing millions of people’s thoughts on a variety of subjects can leave us mentally hijacked for hours, if not days.
You know how your computer slows down with too many windows open or not enough available memory? I think the same thing happens with us.
We’ve got to find a way to close these tabs, clear our own cookies, and shut our mental computers down for awhile - regularly.
I’m asking all of us to develop some kind of evening practice to mentally detox from all of the input we’ve received all day long.
It can be journaling, prayer, meditation, watching a candle/fireplace burn for a little while, but, for the sake of your own well-being, do something.
Don’t just jump in bed with all the things wandering around your brain.
You deserve rest.
You deserve a clear mind.
You deserve the chance to hear yourself think. 💕
If you have a nightly detox routine that works for you, share it with us in the comments below!
