Day 156: Hà Nội 🇻🇳Tuesday 24.07.2017
The day of realisation.. In the last time I felt distracted. Even while training I could hardly concentrate on what I was doing. My mind was somewhere else. This condition bothered me for more then ten days. While having another unfocused training I could identify THE reason. Not being happy with the playlist I was listening to forced me to open spotify. I wanted something new, something better, a new reward. I wanted instant gratification for a simple scroll through my phone. Most time this works well. You open Instagram to see new likes and followers, you open Facebook to scroll the news feed, always on the hunt for new information. It´s simple. Instant access to endless sources of informations are just a fingertip away. Moving your thumb is easier than exploring a new area.
The problem was identified. My brain was used to quick success due to excessive use of social media/the internet during the last weeks. In this time I spent hours on the phone. Checking Facebook constantly was the only option to find a flat in Copenhagen. When problems appeared I just checked Instagram in the meantime. The instant gratification of opening another app and see people liking your pictures memes real success and distracts you from the real problems. Next to these stuff I was continuously searching for new music to improve the following workouts. Even more time on the phone.
I reacted to this immediately and turned of my phone for two days. No music, no social media and no internet. And there it was relief. My mental restlessness dissolved. The workouts got better and I feel way more relaxed than before. Have I missed out on something? No!
That´s not an option for the long run… We´ll see if I find a decent compromise. I will let you know.
