Scattered Platforms Equals Cluttered Mind

Hey there!

I hope you’re doing well. Today, I want to talk about something that has been on my mind lately—the effect of scattered platforms on our mental well-being.

In this age of constant connectivity. We are bombarded with notifications, social media updates, and endless streams of information.

It’s so easy to feel overwhelmed and lose focus… Recently, I took a step back and reevaluated my relationships with these platforms.

I decided to remove the Facebook and Instagram apps from my phone and turn off notifications for Twitter and LinkedIn. Also Snapchat, and WhatsApp (I literally have those because of friends and family). The same goes for YouTube.

Let me tell you—it’s been a game-changer!

I already have a lot on my plate, because I’m currently moving back to my hometown. And there’s a lot of planning and packing. It can become super stressful!

Since doing this, I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my mental clarity and focus.

I’m no longer constantly checking my phone for new notifications or getting lost in the endless scroll.

Instead, I am actually able to concentrate on the things that truly matter to me. And when I have to use Facebook and Instagram, I will do it through my laptop, a better alternative. I don’t have my laptop in my bed, or when I wake up, or when brushing my teeth.

If you are feeling overwhelmed by the scattered nature of digital platforms, consider giving this approach a try.

  1. Start identifying the apps and notifications that contribute the most to your scattered mind.
  2. Then, take steps to declutter your digital space, whether that’s deleting apps, turning off notifications, or setting specific times for social media use.

Our well-being is just as important as our physical health. By taking control of our digital environment, we can create a more focused, balanced, and fulfilling life.

I hope this inspires you to reflect on your relationship with digital platforms and take steps towards a clearer, more focused mind.

Until next time,

Stay inspired!
