Multitasking, meeting deadlines, achieving Key Performance Indicators while juggling family responsibilities are increasingly affecting our ability to lead and have a healthy work-life balance. Given these circumstances, do we have any hope of ever being able to be truly on top of it all?
The biggest ill of the modern age is overthinking or compulsive thinking. It is estimated that there are about 60 thoughts that come into our heads per minute and we are constantly acting on and reacting to each. We are mostly unmindful of this constant mind chatter. This puts an enormous strain on the body and our organs. The majority of these thoughts are of things that occurred in the past or things that will happen in the future. Both these states of mind create anxiety, fear and stress. It inhibits us from functioning aptly within society.
The challenge for us humans in this modern digital age is to master the art of being mindful. By being mindful, you can get more done without feeling the usual stress and anxiety.
