How much information do you receive on an average day? It is exponentially more than what our ancestors got. Everywhere we look, there is information. Our phones, TVs, laptops, tablets, radios, magazines, and newspapers are all constantly trying to tell us something. Our attention is endlessly coveted. What has shrunk so dramatically is simultaneously hounded after, consequently for this reason. There is so much to witness in the world and so much for people to gain from you paying attention. Retailers want you to pay attention to their marketing so that you buy their products. News outlets want you to be informed of the latest politics to help elect politicians.
The media wants our attention so that you can use it as a means to ignore the others seeking your attention. With all this constant bombardment, most of us can’t help but find it all to be rather fuzzy. When we’re oversaturated with information and events we tend to zone out. We lose focus as there are too many things that demand our attention. The more we spread ourselves out, trying to sample bits of every conversation, the less we hear and register.
If you’ve ever tried to better your lifestyle as part of a new year’s resolution, this might sound familiar. People take the start of a new year to be a clean slate on which to start improving themselves. We can be so eager to get started and use the momentum of this newfound motivation, that we go overboard. We list every flaw in our lifestyles and selves that we want to fix. And then we aim to fix them all at once. This may seem like a good idea initially, for a few days you may feel like the person you are trying to become. The person who has it all together, if only for a few days. The cliche of New Year’s resolutions almost always plays out with this perfect person falling apart after just a few days.
The perfect balance of habits and lifestyles can not come sustainably overnight. The people who have been able to achieve this balance had to work up to it slowly by focusing on one aspect at a time. Focusing on one habit allows us to truly build it into our lives, in such a way that it is no longer a chore to do. Once that habit is ingrained in the daily schedule, you won’t have to consciously force yourself to do it. Only then should you move onto establishing the next habit, so that you can focus your efforts there. By taking it slowly, we can allow ourselves to adjust and let things fall into place.
