The Attention Rollercoaster

As soon as we wake up, we’re strapped into a non-stop rollercoaster ride of stimulations that command our attention. Our hearts pound with rage or break with despair with each news headline, while our minds, chained to our phones, hungrily seek dopamine fixes. Our thoughts dart between the shadow of a past that wasn’t and a future that might never come. By the end of the day, we’re depleted of energy that could have been invested in things more aligned with our higher purpose.
