Our Brains Are Exhausted
With our fast-paced technology, this overestimation leaked over to the real world. The National Alliance on Mental Health Illness mentioned how “the brain is trained at a young age to multitask to such a high degree [through the use of technology] that it is often incapable of focusing on one task or thought at a time.” With the development of Reels and Tiktok, these platforms have not helped our exhausted brain go from one stimulant to the next like a drug. Now, we can barely focus on one task in the real world. We are constantly seeking that next high from an outside stimulant. To combat this, we all need to meditate just a little bit more.
