I Lost 2 Hours on Facebook!

Last week I went on to Facebook for a purely business reason - I don’t even remember why.  I got sucked down a Facebook hole for 2 hours!!!  I got NOTHING done, I accomplished none of the tasks I was supposed to be doing, and when I looked up 2 hours had passed.

I'm still mad at myself for losing that time and energy - for what? For nothing!

 

How Ayurveda Thinks about Information Overload

Ayurveda is considered an alternative form of medicine in the US, but in India where it originated 5,000 years ago it’s just called medicine.  It’s a holistic system of healing that views you as a whole person. As a trained Ayurvedic Practitioner, one of my favorite things to share about Ayurveda with clients (and really any one that will listen) is that we have to figure out how to digest everything. 

When you think about digestion usually you just think about what you eat and drink, but Ayurveda reminds us that we engage with the entire world around us. So, subtle things you might not think about like the perfume the person next to you on the plane was wearing that made you want to vomit and gave you a headache.  Or the fluorescent lighting in the convention center you were trapped in for 3 days for a conference. You have to digest and process all of that. It can include positive things like seeing a sunset or hearing a song you love. It also includes all the people you engage with every day, like that client who keeps cancelling on you.  Or when your teenager yells at you and tells you he doesn’t respect you as a person - you have to find a way to digest that - you know, after you take away his phone and ground him. Some of these things are within your control and others are not.

Overwhelmed?  Here are some 3 strategies to help reduce decision fatigue.

Take Action: What content or information is worth your time and energy?

What should you keep and what should you ditch?

TV, podcasts, emails, blogs, radio, news, SOCIAL MEDIA

 

Here are some questions to consider:

  1. Is this necessary for my job?
  2. How does it make me feel?
  3. Does this add value to my life?
  4. Is it worth my time and energy?

 

ACTION STEPS:

Make a list of the information/content you currently engage with each week (TV, radio, news, books, apps, blogs, podcasts, SOCIAL MEDIA):

  1. What do you want to keep and WHY?
  2. What do you want to ditch and WHY?
  3. Do it!  And notice how much more time you have.
