I have been one of those people for most of my life that could never seem to walk anywhere without my headphones in listening to music. Lately though I have found that it is nice just to listen to nature, I mean why must I constantly be stimulated all the time?
I have sorta adopted the notion that this constant need for stimulation is not allowing us to listen to our bodies. I explained this to a girl the other day and she said I sound very "spiritual" in saying so but that is not spiritual at all. In the same way alcohol can distract us from our feelings can technology? Things like Facebook, TV, and gaming do they kind of just numb us down so we can ignore ourselves?
My friend told me he started going on walks in the morning just for the hell of it and I think that's great. Doing things just for the hell of it with no real intent then just being alone with yourself and not technology must really be a way to let go.
Also do you reckon google can be a cause of thinking too much? I am always using google, having the answers constantly at the end of my arm means I am free to analayse everything. I don't think if can be good for me.
Anyway at least I ditched Facebook a few years ago. That was baaaaaad. Its the most egotistical attention seeking site I've ever seen. It's also possibly making people depressed (don't know if that's been proven but it makes sense) with these constant updates of "friends" perfect lives which makes you compare yourself to them. I found when I deleted mine most of these people don't even notice when you're gone. Those that do are your true friends. Never looked back and it has only been a relief ditching that silly network I would really recommend it.
