Get Off Social Media

  • Don’t go by the trends, instead, look at counter-trends and tread your own digital path. Mainstream news is common and there is too much of it online.
  • One has to collect precious, uncommon information, which is valuable and worth our attention.
  • Turn off your smartphone every evening and on weekends, or if you can, do not even own one.

Do not worry about where the crowd is going.

  • Travel to those places where you would not find everyone else. Try to take the road less travelled and learn new things while on the road by having new experiences and talking to new people.
  • Embrace silence and learn how to be mindful and self-aware. Stop the chatter in your brain ...

We need to ‘unsubscribe’ from what everyone else is reading, and randomly pick books or magazines, and even talk to strangers for creating a twist in our information consumption routines, exposing us to fresh new insights.

Most of the sensational news stories we read and watch on TV all day are just to grab our eyeballs and do not even matter any more after a short while.

It helps to trim out your news sources and only read a few good publications, physical newspapers and weekend edition magazines for better insight on current events, and for reducing the noise going in our brain.
