💤 Remember “Netflix’s biggest competitor? Sleep“? It made sense, was even flattering at the time. Someone exploited our sensory addictions so we could have “the best experience.” 😍🤩🤯
🌀 Caught in a loop
It is getting increasingly harder to “find something to watch”. A stronger sensory exploit to escape the adverse effects of the previous ones. Invest in heavier digital drugs to “overcome” stress or anxiety. Get some sleep.
💨 Villainizing sidetracks from actual causes
No point blaming “big bad corporations” (or ourselves). 2020 events are also just conditions, even those affecting us physically.
💎 Everyone is unique
However, one thing we have in common. The mind. An instrument that can be trained. We can fix the internal causes of ruminating and worries that disturb our sleep.
