Overcoming the Attraction to Distraction

Distractions come in as many different forms as there are people on this planet. Sex, drugs & rock and roll are the easy Go-To because Hollywood promotes this so much but people can get just as easily distracted by a host of other things such as sports, movies, video games, work load, novel series, or particular unsolved mysteries like Bigfoot or UFOs.

The key with making life work is surely “Moderation in all things.” It’s natural for the mind to need a rest now and again from the pressures and stresses of day-to-day life. Dropping everything to binge watch a Netflix series on a Saturday afternoon is not going to make or break a meaningful life. The key is to just notice when the mind is seeking out a distraction. Take note and acknowledge it. Take a rest from the heavy-lifting tasks of daily life and enjoy the much needed break.

But then, before too long and without too much delay, return back to life as you know it and keep on moving forward in the direction of your dreams.

Don’t give up. You’ll get there. Just keep moving.
