Sometimes, I enjoy listening to music while I’m on the road. Other times, I enjoy podcasts or books on Audible. The podcast that I’ve been listening to in the car lately is “Futurology.” A recent episode I listened to discussed anxiety, repeating patterns, social media/”social contagion”, distractions, and solving a lot of it with “Mindfulness.” (This is the episode: Click Here For the Link)
I’ve decided that I want to dive into this and see how it goes. If I don’t find it helpful at all, I’ll move on. If it helps me out – awesome. I’ll let ya know.
Some of the things that I want to do to dive into this:
- Try the “Headspace” app
- Try the “Unwinding Anxiety” app
- Check out the book “Unwinding Anxiety: New Science Shows How to Break the Cycles of Worry and Fear to Heal Your Mind“
- Check out the book “Indistractable: How to Control Your Attention and Choose Your Life“
What do I hope I get out of this? I’m hoping to cope better with the world around me, be able to actually DO good things for my community instead of just sitting around worrying, and find ways to cherish what I have everyday rather than complaining.
