Think you've got dementia?

Updated: Dec 18, 2021

Today beautiful world includes a massive increase in connectivity. Many isolated

people will have been very grateful for this during COVID-19. However, there is

downside. Each time we're distracted by a phone notification or a new post and look at

our devices, we break our concentration. The brain likes novelty and will happily take

you from one place to another to another. Now, if you are a person who can't resist a

peek after a ping, then you might find your concentration waning - it's little bit like

there's a limited amount of space to think. Buddhists; call this the “monkey mind".

Unfortunately, repeated or chronic stress heightens the physiological consequence in

our body and our ability to relax becomes more difficult, throwing our nervous system

out of balance. And as our brains use pictures to create memories, that stress plays

havoc with our memory. Forgetfulness can be a sign of stress. You can manage this in

a many ways, but a good start is defining time slots to peek at social media. And

of course, mindfulness, meditation and/or self-hypnosis help.

Do you want to be in charge of your thoughts or let your thoughts boss you around?
