Cut Out The Empty Noise: Focus On Yourself

Often times in life we go through unforeseen paths, crossroads and adjustment periods where we can get bogged down and confused on where our life is headed. This can be caused by countless number of things i.e. friends, family, career decisions or maybe even crossroads that come in our life. Focusing on ourselves can be difficult at times when we are going through life obstacles.

First Things First: Time Management

Lets, think about how many hours we spend online every day. There’s a host of ways that we can spend our time online i.e. Social media, YouTube, online magazines/articles, shopping and numerous other things that can distract us. Then we have to take some time to think about does any of these sites add any value to our lives. If not we should limit some of our time spent on these fun but sometimes distracting activities. This can benefit us in the long run by using our time more wisely on these that can improve or enhance our lives.

Plan Your ‘Perfect Day’

When you have a day that you don’t have anything planned ahead of time. Design your perfect day from what you will do when you wake up in the morning. You can choose anything you want there’s no limit you can exercise, relax all day, start working on that business idea you’ve always had or even educate yourself by reading a book you seem to never have the time to crack open. Many times we cannot take a whole day to just do whatever we want. So often times we have to find time to do the things we really want to do. One of the easiest things to cut back on is the time we spend watching TV, YouTube videos or on social media.

Final Thoughts

Once we cut out the empty noise in our lives we make time to make our goals, dreams or passions a reality. Stick to your guns and don’t fall victim to the “empty noise” in life. Do you have trouble finding free time to do things you enjoy most? Comment below & if you liked this post please share!

    Time is the most precious thing we have.
    I like the idea of using your time more effectively.
    The main problem is we are all creatures of habit.

    Jay.. U hit on some really valid points… So much distraction these days… Trying to keep with everything is setting us back with what is really important…

    But.. If we can all manage our time to allow us to put less time into these social medias.
    Then we will all realize that we have more time in our day than we realized

    I agree! I believe we find it hard to focus on ourselves because we are afraid of who we are…or what we want. That is why we love to watch others how they live.

    This is all something that I’m finally figuring out in my senior year of college. Sometimes it’s important to dedicate your time to your own projects, not meaningless commitments I’ve acquired over time. It’s good to see it in a post!

    Yep …hopefully it makes us sharper in ‘life’ ….including SEEING THE BIGGER PICTURE!!!!
    Too much ‘self’ indulgence is partly why we are where we are politically right now…..get to know ‘the other’ ….but DO NOT ACCEPT LANGUAGE OF HATE …STAND UP TO IT!!!! ….that is NOT ‘white noise’

    It is important to focus on the task. We all make plans. But it is very difficult to follow up on the plan we create. I agree, a planned life is important.
