The next time you go to open social media, be it Instagram, Facebook, Reddit – ask yourself, “what am looking for on here?”
The next time you visit a shopping site to buy something – ask yourself, “what am I buying this for?”
The next time you try checking the news – ask yourself, “what am reading this for?”
The next time you find yourself overcome with worry and anxiety – ask yourself, “why am I thinking this way?”
Clarify Your Intentions
It’s good to stop and clarify your intentions behind your actions. The simple act of asking why can illuminate your mindless behavior.
Question what it is that you are seeking. Chances are, you are probably looking in the wrong place.
