Digital Detox – Kundalini Yoga
We have been talking about detox over the last fortnight, which basically means that you have accumulated more than you have eliminated resulting in your system being overloaded.
In today’s Age of Aquarius (please look at past blogs) the information age. We are constantly accumulating information. Especially from our smartphones, tablets, computers etc. Taking information in this form firstly stimulates a different part of your brain, than if you read a paper book, newspaper, etc. This in itself is not a problem, but if you are on your digital device whether it is for work or leisure for 6-10 hours a day, you are absorbing and storing vast amounts of information which really has no way to be processed. And here in the problem lies, over accumulation leads to a toxic build up.
But as you know the digital world is addictive. It is easily addictive as food, alcohol, smoking or drugs. Try to be out of contact with the digital world for ½ day or 1 day and see how you feel. You may start feeling anxious, worried, upset, maybe someone is urgently trying to contact you? Also we are not used to being bored, not doing, reading, or watching something, etc. This was highlighted when I waited in a Doctor’s surgery (Here is Sri Lanka the digital world only surfaced around 5 years ago), everyone was on their phones. Heads down, shoulders rounded, engrossed.
So the challenge this week, is other than your work, can you make space for at least 3 hours of digital free time per day. On the weekend have half a day i.e. 6 hours to 12 hours with no interaction with the digital world. Instead, play games, talk to your family, friends, neighbours, do a jigsaw, draw, handwrite a letter, make Christmas cards, read a paper book. Try it, it will not kill you and maybe you will feel a spark of creativity that you have lost.
In class we will support you with this challenge by doing lots of soothing kriyas for the brain and deep meditative practices to clear out some of the information overload. Sat nam Fi xx. www.sanasuma.co.uk
