There are so many ways to have instant communication that it makes my head spin. I think I am being left behind in the dust. I find it impossible to stay current with all the new social media platforms. It takes an inordinate amount of time to manage email. How is this making my life more simple? I feel overwhelmed by it all.
We are constantly being bombbarded by information. Everywhere you turn there is an ad coming at you. Technology and our lifestyles are speeding up faster and faster. We love the convenience factor but what about information overload? How much does this add to our distraction and stress factor? Do we feel like we will never “get caught up”. Instant access to all this wonderful information can quickly turn into a burden. What does it do to the human connection?
Like all things in life there is an up and a down side. There are advantages and disadvantages to everything. The key is being aware of what these are and having limits. More than ever I crave meaningful connection with other humans. I crave nourishment of all kinds. My mind, body and spirit all need to be fed and cared for. If I loose sight of this I may just end up sick and exhausted. In light of what is happening with most of the world on shut down how can we get some of our basic needs met? This causes me some grave concern.
