We were not that surprised to hear that on Twitter the fifth most popular New Year’s Resolution last year was to get offline more often.
What is the quality of your concentration? We spend lots of time being stimulated by the many things in our life. I find that being online can really challenge the focus I have. I may go into Facebook with the intention of posting about a workshop, for example, and 30 minutes later I’ve had an interesting time reading about lots of stuff, but I haven’t actually written the post! Do you find the same?
Wouldn’t it be great if everyone who does decide to get offline regularly spent some of that time meditating. What a great benefit that would be to the world!
