Is Social Media Destroying Our Quality of Mind?

Why has it become so much difficult to express one’s own thoughts? Just another day, I was thinking about this. Is it only me, or has anyone other noticed this?

I had been writing my own thoughts in my diary for long, sometimes on my blog too. Blogging was so much popular in between 2004 to 2014. Here blogging means… sharing one’s own thoughts… not just these review sites about technology, movies, books, political parties, economy etc which are full of useless advertisements and popups. It is so much easy to write about how much RAM a mobile has or how much profit a movie has earned on box office. But it is so much difficult to explain what is happening inside the mind… on deeper levels.

If you are a blogger or a writer, you can understand it very well. You must have faced this problem in your personal relations too. A time comes when you lost a relation just because you could not express your feelings in words.

Why is this happening?

It takes a great deal of attention and quiet mind for a significant period of time… to observe the thoughts. Only after observing deeply… one comes to a point when one can write those observations on a paper.

Don’t you think, social media has destroyed this quality of mind? The quality of attention for a longer period of time? As long… as our mind needs to understand something clearly… in depth.

Scrolling a timeline on social media seems like our attention is jumping like a monkey from one branch (post) to another branch (post) without understanding anything. In this way, are we programming our mind to distract itself? Are we conditioning our brain in such a way… that it can not pay attention to one thing for more than a minute?

Blogging is almost dead after social media has occupied all the internet. Social media is growing too fast. Blogging is difficult because you have to write… but it is easy to use Facebook, Twitter & Instagrams etc. Letters, emails and even long messages… all are dead.

I think almost 90% Facebook & Instagram users post only pictures, without writing anything to it. It is so much easy to click a picture… we even have powerful cameras on our mobiles including special effects and filters.

Twitter does not allow its users to write a long post… because Twitter knows very well that the people who could write long posts… are already dead. So it is simple… don’t allow your users to do something that they are not able to do.

It is even more easy to respond to any social media post… they have readymade expression buttons… so a reader doesn’t have to write something.

So in this way, it becomes an easy game to play… just post pictures and keep clicking on like buttons… all day long.

Sometimes I think in a different way. The popularity of social media has destroyed the quality of our mind… or the quality of our mind was already declining… so social media become so much popular?

I don’t know but I am not wasting my time on social media anymore and just living my life closer to reality.

The Web We Have to Save

The web was not envisioned as a form of television when it was invented. But, like it or not, it is rapidly resembling TV: linear, passive, programmed and inward-looking. When I log on to Facebook, my personal television starts. All I need to do is to scroll: New profile pictures by friends, short bits of opinion on current affairs, links to new stories with short captions, advertising, and of course self-playing videos. I occasionally click on like or share button, read peoples’ comments or leave one, or o

Klokov: Training Methods of the Russian Champion

Dmitry Klokov is a true strength icon. Transcending his country, continent and sport, Klokov is synonymous with intensity, power and success.

This book is really good and I recommend every weightlifter to read this book once.

Dmitry is the 2005 World Championship Gold Medalist and 2008 Olympic Silver Medalist in the 105kg class, owning PRs of 196kg in the snatch, 232kg in the clean & jerk for a 428kg total.

This book goes far beyond the sets, reps and percentages of training, it is a look into a man’s life, his motivation and his mind as he grows in the sport of weightlifting as the son of a legend (World Champion Vyacheslav Klokov) and struggles to create his own identity as a young athlete, to his rise to World and Olympic Medalist for the prestigious and ultra-competitive Russian National Team.
