If you’re ever stressing out, take the time to stretch. Bend over and try to touch your toes or put your palms flat on the floor. Hold this pose for one minute. Slowly release and bring yourself back to a standing position. Raise your arms above your head and try to touch the sky. Slowly arch back, using your arms to guide you in the direction you are leaning. Hold for 30 seconds. Bring yourself back to standing position once more. Take your arms and wrap them around your upper torso. Give yourself a hug. Remember to love yourself.
I usually dont write my personal thoughts and feelings on the web. I feel like people forget the emotion behind a word when they read the text. You know the old saying -read between the lines..well that just doesnt happen anymore. And because of this, we’ve created this virtual world of self riteousness; somewhere where we dont have to fit in, but a place we can all rule on our own. Through photos, videos and blogs, many individuals on the web have painted us all a pretty mirage. Something we cant physically grasp, but something that illuminates the blind eye. It’s all repetitive, and uninspiring.
I wake up every morning, and the first thing I always find myself doing, is grabbing my tablet to check all the social media apps I possibly can. This never ends with me feeling great about myself. I feel a disconnect from others around me…like I’m not quite getting what I want out of life. And then comes the irrational thinking that can only put one into a nihilistic mindset. I often ask myself, what is the point? We are ‘connected’ to each other so easily, but I cant help but feel a sense of isolation. Isolated and unmotivated by the materialism I face on the daily. Maybe I’m old fashioned.. I was always raised with the concept of privacy in mind and the appreciation for the smaller things in life that really matter.
Am I being closed minded?
I know the web isn’t for every personality type, but how do you adjust to a world that is becoming the web?
Send me a response, whether you agree with me or disagree, I’d love to read it!
