Today we live in a world where everyone is under constant stimulation. Whether it’s from the TV, the computer screen, the cell phone screen, or billboards on the street, our eyes and ears are constantly under assault and our minds are racing to process all of this information. As a matter of fact, few of us can even remember what it was like before the internet and mobile phones gave us 24/7 instant access to gigabytes upon gigabytes of mind-stimulating content.
The truth is, our brains did not evolve to function in such a state of constant sensory overload. This can eventually translate into increased anxiety, stress, tiredness and depression. Most people then attempt to fix this by further saturating their brains with artificial chemicals provided by a system whose ultimate goal is to sell a product. No wonder depression and suicide rates are at an all-time high.
Luckily, not all solutions need to be complex or require a financial investment. Hundreds of years ago people throughout the world developed meditation techniques which help to reduce pain, depression, stress, and anxiety. This practice provides one with a sensation of peace that must be found from within, instead of acquired externally in exchange for money, like most of the things we are used to. For this reason, the system has little financial incentive to encourage you to try it. Nevertheless, it works.
