Can you even fathom this?? In one century, we’ve added 28 years to our average life span – a change so rapid that our brains couldn’t possibly have evolved to accommodate it!! No wonder we are often overwhelmed. So much information, yet less wisdom. More connectivity, less real connection. More opportunity, and yet still more anxiety.
I think it’s all connected. Deeply connected. And we have to truly come to terms with the fact our brains aren’t developed enough to accommodate it all, at this frequency, and this pace.
Taking an hour on waking, a sacred hour without tech is vital. Time to ponder, meditate, exercise, breakfast, whatever you want to do, BUT WITHOUT ANY TECH. Giving our brains a much needed breather before we fill it with information. Because once we start, it’s pretty relentless all day. This spaciousness at the start means we can not only cope but thrive.
