Are We Zombies? The Reduced Life Of The Living Dead.

If we have become insensitive to what is happening around us and have developed an oblivious shell around us, then it is high time you hit the reset button on your life. All we do is to keep ourselves glued to that silly yet very over-powering mobile phone in your hands.

You’re scrolling through your Facebook feed when you see a post about the latest school shooting. You automatically scroll past it, not wanting to think about the tragedy. You’ve become so desensitized to the violence happening in our world that you’ve developed a numbness to it.

This isn’t healthy, and it’s time for you to hit the reset button on your life. Some suggestions are as follows:

  1. Spend time in nature.
  2. Connect with friends and family.
  3. Volunteer in your community.
  4. Reflect on what’s important to you.
  5. Make time for yourself.
  6. Connect with your spirituality.
  7. Get creative.

Why Have We Become Oblivious?

Have you ever had the feeling that you are merely going through the motions? That you’ve become numb to what’s happening around you? If so, you’re not alone.

It’s easy to become oblivious to the world around us. We build walls around ourselves for protection. We become insensitive without meaning to be. This is often due to anxiety about how we are perceived by others.

Recognizing insensitivity is the first step to protecting yourself from it. If you can identify when someone is speaking insensitively to you, you can put up your guard. You can choose not to be affected by them.

How Has This Affected Us?

You’ve probably been feeling a little out of touch lately, like you just can’t seem to get motivated to do anything. You’re not quite sure why, but everything just seems so pointless. Well, it might not be you that’s changed—it might be the world around you.

It’s not uncommon for people to develop an oblivious shell around them as a way to cope with the never-ending news cycle. We see something horrific on the news and then switch off because we can’t handle it. We hear about another mass shooting and decide to unplug from social media because we can’t bear to see the posts. We become desensitized to the pain and suffering happening all around us, and before long we’ve become completely disconnected from the world.

If this sounds like you, then it’s time to hit the reset button of your life. You need to find a way to reconnect with the world around you, before it’s too late.

How Can We Become More Aware and Sensitive?

If you’ve been feeling like you’ve been disconnected from the world, or like you’re just not interested in anything going on around you, there are things you can do to reset your life.

The first step is to begin paying attention to your surroundings. What are they wearing? What types of advertisements are adorning the walls? What type of music is being played in the background? All of these things provide information about what is going on in the world.

Talking to people is yet another option. Start conversations with strangers and listen carefully to what they say. Inquire about their lives and listen intently. You’ll be amazed at how much you can discover, simply by conversing with others.

The bottom line is that if you want to reset your life, you need to become more aware and sensitive to what’s going on around you. It won’t be easy, but it’s definitely worth it.

How Can We Benefit From This In Our Daily Lives?

  2. Spend time in nature. This can help you reconnect with the world around you and clear your mind.
  3. Always spend time with people who are important to you. These are the people who will stand by you and will be there for you during difficult times.

  5. Make a plan for the future. What steps must you take to get there? How can you make this happen?

What Can We Do to Make a Difference?
