Essential ingredients of a happy, healthy life – Part 3
What the most consumed item in your life right now?
I’m pretty sure it’s not veggies, or water or even junk food (although most of us do our best). Chance are, even just by nature of the fact that you’re reading this right now (instead of having it for breakfast), that you consume more information than just about anything else.
And it’s not like you don’t feel it.
Well, even if you don’t, your body-mind definitely does! And… I’m guessing your info consumption habit is slowing you down.
According to Ayurveda, EVERYTHING we experience with our senses feeds us in some way. Our world and experience of living gives the body and the mind something to work on, break down, assimilate and eventually… let go of.
So you might say that we’re digestion machines that run 24/7 (yep even our dreams have something for us). And the sheer volume of information that we put on our plates every day is contributing to the overwhelm, fatigue, disconnection (yes, disconnection!), and dissatisfaction that has become a big part of life for so many.
But all is not lost my loves! So here are some of my thoughts and suggestions for how to manage your information appetite!
So clearly THE RIGHT information is the key to having, doing and being what you want in the world. But there’s SO much information out there about how to be happy and healthy, that we lose touch with our own wisdom and the natural intelligence that is all around us.
I’d love to know more about how YOU manage your information “diet”. What works for you when it comes to staying afloat in the multi-media (social, tv, internet, radio, etc.) sea. Let me know in the comments!
