We all know that overindulgence with on-line time is bad for our mental health. But that isn’t the whole story.
Mindlessly scrolling with Social media, celeb gossip forums, (so dull and yet so popular!) Youtube videos with impossibly perfect lifestyles, & lavish shopping addictions, these are just some of the darker sides of on-line living. I would also add getting drawn in political or other arguments on Facebook or TPF. Brexit, Trump, Johnson, twillies, 🤨box vs Epsom -some things, we are never going to see eye to eye.
On the brighter side of on-line time – picking up language skills, is easy peasy! My nephew had on-line language classes for years, even before lockdown. He now speaks pretty good french, spanish and (I think) something resembling chinese mandarin – not bad for a 12 year old. on- line yoga & pilates and even work related zoom meetings? No brained! These save much precious time – so much more efficient really.
A healthy life balance may contain interaction with plenty of real people, restaurants serving actual food to eat, (rather than just photographing it for IG), visiting proper shops and above all: travel!
Traveling broadens the mind!
aaah how we missed travel! About to book a serene getaway with a full digital detox, thrown in. Planning for walks, plenty of yoga and meditation – bliss! The only question that remains: (somewhat unsettling my zen) 🙂What handbag do I need to take? Any suggestions?
