Information overload? Anxiety?

The remedy isn’t hiding in social media feeds.

It’s really simple: stop.

Stop the inbound flood of information. Let the feeds go by you, let the emails sit, let the chat continue on its own.

The solution is no more information. Only the information you have inside.

That’s why meditation, taking a walk, or simply sitting and drinking a favorite hot beverage work.

Then your mind will re-remember the purpose of information: helping you survive.

And you will see the signals, and you will see the noise.

And then you’ll go back to work.

Stop the information flood if it’s threatening to drown you.

Disengage. Discern. Do.
