Kick The Habit

If you are addicted to turning on your electronic devices the minute your eyes open in the morning and before you get out of bed — just stop it!

The calls and the information that accumulated through the night will still be waiting for you and unless you need such urgency for some valid reason, just relax and take a few minutes to relax, wake up and get ready for your day before grabbing that phone.

I used to be addicted to electronic (Just have to check everything out first thing in the morning every morning without fail …) and I later discovered that I had worked myself up into a lot of unwanted extra tension because of the anxieties connected with communications in this fast-paced frenetic world.

“Not worth it!” I said to myself.

    1. No harm done. Unlike the right wing extremist bloggers, I do not cut people off because they might have some other view of things than I do. You are always welcome here … always … I enjoy your participation!

  1. Some people need that fix, John. My partner is miserable if she doesn’t get her news first thing every morning. And she hassles me when I just lay in bed. I’m retired, I had a lifetime of getting up to alarms. Now, sometimes I just lay awake in bed for hours, and enjoy the silence. Everyone has their own way to do things. Do it your way, but let others discover their ways for themselves. Just sayin’.

    1. Trust me when I say that I have no problem with how other people do things. But I will suggest that a lot of stress and tension accompanies electronic information sometimes and people who are easily stressed can find some peace by changing some of their habits. That’s all I was saying by including this article on the blog, It is the same with the evening news and a lot of newspapers and magazines these days — they are written for their shock value and most of the news they present is either scary or depressing. I know that a lot of folks don’t believe they could live without negative stimulation in massive doses (It is everywhere) but I do beg to differ.
