New products, new words, new habits have emerged in our lives the last few years.
I didn’t know for example that Turmeric was so fundamental in our daily diet nor did I know the existence of Goji berries and kale. Macha tea came to replace our local herbal infusions (I still didn’t understand why) as well as different kinds of workout with sophisticated and complicated names replaced a normal cardio and weight lifting routine at the Gym. The exposure to different stimuli, because of the internet and global societies we currently live in, confuse us and they are often hard to grasp. Instagram is becoming one of the main sources of “entertainment” and information exchange and it is rather uncontrollable when it comes to the way people interpret things. Sometimes people view things from a very pessimistic point of view and through a very negative perspective. Instead of getting inspired by the people we follow on Instagram we get frustrated because we don’t look like them; we cannot afford having the clothes they have; or in one way or another we don’t lead the same lifestyle.
And since I too am interested in these kinds of platforms, I choose to view things through a more positive lens. It helps me revaluate some things.
So my advice to you is: be the person you admire in your own magic way.
However, it is rather inevitable to stay away from technology and media. So, I guess, my main point is that we shouldn’t let technology control us, but only inspire us to be kinder, happier and more creative!
