Distraction is a negative feedback loop.
More distractions, less time to think, ponder, daydream.
Do we place more distractions in our life to avoid thinking?
Tv is a distraction, purchasing can be a distraction even a hobby for some.
Pain is a distraction.
Spend some time today thinking about the distractions in your life. Can you remove one or two? What would that look like? Would that open enough space in your life for something you have been wanting to do or take on?
When we remove physical things, we open the door for more mental space and allow for the things we value and want to enter into our lives. If we have too many things then there is no room for things to come into our lives. What do you want in your life? Can you make room for it? Do you need to jettison something to do this?
