Finding Peace In The Midst Of Media Overload

by | Oct 27, 2023 | Podcasts

Let’s get real. The world feels scary, overwhelming, and uncertain as heck right now. The last few weeks have been a ringer. Many of us are feeling super saturated with media overload and that’s wreaking havoc on our bodies and minds. But I’m here to share some really good news: You have the power to control how you feel on the inside, no matter what’s happening on the outside. The way you experience the world around you boils down to a little something I call “Cactus and Blanket.”

In this episode, you’ll learn about the impact digital media is having on your thoughts and feelings. I’ll share mind blowing, eye opening, holy shit level stats from Statista about how much time we’re spending with digital media, including social media. And I’ll turn you onto some of the ways screen time is affecting your brain, by sharing nuggets of wisdom from Dr. Victoria Dunkley that were published in a SUNY Potsdam article.

And of course, I’ll introduce you to my analogy of “Cactus and Blanket” to help you understand the miraculous worker bee known as your nervous system. I will connect you with the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems so you can understand how these systems are controlling the way you think, feel, and experience your life.
