There is an invisible epidemic sweeping our world. Do you know what it is? It’s a world-wide addiction to stimulation. Since iPhone and iPad have become commonplace, people are getting used to being constantly engaged in something. Whether it is texting, talking, emailing, listing to music, watching videos, or playing games, people are seeking contact stimulation. The problem with this constant need for stimulation is that it makes it hard for people to be still. When clients complain to me that they can’t meditate, this is often a primary reason. Being attached to our favorite gadget leaves us isolated from human contact and for some a loss of meaning or purpose in life.  Where would your mind be if you weren’t distracted by your source of stimulation? What would you be thinking? What would you be doing? Creating? Building? And with whom would you be doing it? Take a chance and put down your phone. Sit quietly and allow your mind to wander to all the beautiful places, people and opportunities the world has to offer. Seek a life of greater meaning and deeper connections than what a text message can give you. When you do, I suspect you will eat less and enjoy life more.
