Instant gratification is probably the most relatable bad habit of our modern world. From the numerous amounts of products that provide us with entertainment, to convenience stores with almost any type of food one could think of, available 24/7. The vast amounts of outside triggers that influence our daily choices tend to make inner focus a difficult to achieve.
Consequently, creating a love for distractions. Anything from the constant flashes emanating from our computer screen as your favorite Netflix series is on. Or your cell phone as it vibrates from a stream of incoming texts. We love losing ourselves within certain indulgences to stray away from responsibilities or activities that lead towards self-improvement. We embody the society that raises us, we learn skills and values through what we learn in schools. Ironically, what we watch on the television or internet, (Given the context of the information and it’s source.) does the same as well.
Although being able to focus and concentrate is becoming alien to many, the ability to learn how is always there. The greatest thing a person can do for themselves and others is to have personal focus sessions. To illustrate, meditate and disconnect from unnecessary energy. Also, painting can be a form of a focus session too. Internalize to externalize your maximum potential.
