A 1989 study revealed that the sleeping brain likes to replay its recent experiences and that doing so supports learning and memory. Recently, they found that replay also happens while we're awake.
When you hear something useful, your mind will automatically replay it at 20 x speed to better grasp the information. But, a constant influx of information prevents replay and can negatively affect learning, memory and decision-making.
But, replay occurs during those idle moments when your brain is not receiving novel information. If your brain doesn't get those breaks, its replay functions suffer.
The general media landscape does its best to capture all your attention with a steady stream of stimulating content. There is the infinite scroll design of most social media sites. Netflix and YouTube jump to the next show or clip the moment you've finished watching something.
These design features are good for the platforms but don't give your brain time to sort and make sense of the information you just received, which at the very least, can lead to memory failures.
Social media information overload can lead to depressive symptoms and reduced well-being. More significantly, an overloaded brain is a confused brain that lapse in memory, judgement, and emotion regulation.
Your brain needs time to wander from time to time, especially if you've engaged with useful information.
Solve the problem or leave the problem. But…… Do not live with the problem.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
