We should continually be inspired to initiate positive change for ourselves. Whether we wish to improve ourselves by practicing a positive attitude, avoiding judgmental behavior, being respectful of others, performing small acts of kindness, volunteering; or perhaps starting a healthier lifestyle.
Work and Perseverance.
The above goals are all very noble and completely attainable with some hard work and perseverance. Becoming the best person we can be isn’t an easy task. It is definitely worth the effort. Imagine how achieving just one of these goals could positively impact the year ahead.
Our Daily Attitudes
Have you considered how today’s technology is playing a role in all of our daily attitudes? Have you observed sitting in a waiting room, and finding everyone’s eyes downcast? It is due to them being on their smartphones. No longer is it even an option to make eye contact with that kind stranger sitting next to us. But how can we? When we’re absorbed in our smartphones.
Social media is a form of connection. Yet, is it getting in the way of real socializing and making us feel more alone?
Lack of Connection
Loneliness is a silent killer in today’s modern society. Loneliness causes much distress to the human psyche and physical body and today’s technology plays a big part in how we interact with each other.
Feeling of Connectivity
Considering we are humans, we are hardwired to crave connection. Social media does help cultivate some connection, it can never supersede true belonging. Real connection, face-to-face contact creates tenderness and empathy allowing a feeling of connectivity.
Ultimately, the goal to improve our life should be to avoid apps that are making us miss out on human contact. Put down the phone and say hi to the person sitting next to you at the doctor’s office or standing next to you in line. It’s surprising to know the positive effect of human contact.
