Overstimulation – The Logic behind Distraction
It has been a while since I last published an article. I had started writing a few times, but couldn’t finish them because of the lack of any stimulation from writing. So, I finally decided to tackle this elephant in the room before I move on to other topics.
This is the chemical that’s released when you are stimulated. It’s a ‘feel-good’ hormone. This ‘good feeling’ keeps you coming back to the same activity – be it surfing the internet or intense sports.
It has made my life a lot easier. I can read, write, and watch whatever and whenever I want. I couldn’t have imagined this 10 yrs ago when Internet speed was equivalent to a turtle’s.
But, this speed comes with its own set of drawbacks. It makes you an addict, like every good thing.
Whenever one of your demands is met, you feel good. Your brain feels stimulated. And, when this keeps occurring, again and again, you get hooked to the stimulation.
It helps you keep organized and calm. You can get through your thoughts by meditating daily. I would suggest you meditate when you feel that a lot of flooding into your brain.
Same benefits like Meditation. It can help you plan the day. So, it’s better if you do it in the morning. You can use OneNote if you want to write on some digital platforms. Or you can use the old method.
Keep it unofficial
Remember, you won’t be writing or meditating to impress an audience. So, you can do these things whichever way you want. You can write anything in your Journal and think anything while you meditate. So, you can go on with these fearlessly.
How it would help?
I assume that you want to get out of this overstimulation loop and the fatigue, it brings with itself. So, first, you need to understand the core of the problem. Then, you can take some moments out of your daily life and practice – Meditation and Journalling.
