We live in a world of distractions. All day, every day we are bombarded with opportunities to be distracted. And, as I’ve recently noticed about myself, many of us choose (whether we’re conscious of it or not) to distract ourselves on purpose to escape from life in various ways.
Given that most of us are going to be distracted on a regular basis, consciously or unconsciously, it’s important that we take a deeper look at how and why we get distracted and do what we can do to start distracting ourselves in healthy ways and for healthy reasons.
If we’re going to live a life of growth, meaning and fulfillment we need lots of healthy breaks and rests along the way, especially when things get hard. If we don’t take these breaks, it’s easy to let worry, fear, negativity, doubt and the daily pressures of life take over, almost without us even noticing.
Here’s a list of some simple things you can do to “distract” yourself in a healthy way. * Watch inspiring movies
* Walk in nature
* Play with children
* Read inspiring books
* Help others
* Spend time with people you love
* Take classes or workshops
* Listen to inspiring music
* Sit and do nothing
This list could go on and on. Take a moment to reflect on these and other things that you can do that will have a positive impact on your life right now.
It’s not so much what you do, but why and how you do it. When we take some time to consciously “distract” ourselves in healthy ways, we interrupt the negative, unconscious and habitual patterns of our minds and our culture that often get in the way of us experiencing the peace, joy, and abundance that is naturally and authentically around us and within us all the time.
