Quit Social Media

Im so tired of hanging out with friends that just stare at their phones.
I feel like its dumbing people down, people are losing their sense of imagination and creativity.
Just staring at their phones for all the answers and entertainment.
How boring.

"I think people struggle with that now, being present in a time and place. There's a lot of talk about mindfulness now and that's about the ability to be present and not constantly affected by erroneous sources around you—that stimulus through a computer or through worries," James says. "It's about being fully present."
"You end up forming a perception of yourself based on other people's opinions; a perception outside your own self, which is a f--king mind f--k because you start perceiving yourself as something that you aren't," he says. To prevent those perceptions from shaping reality, he advises, "Read more. Read every time you go to bed, read in the day—because at least reading a book, you can't be distracted by anything else."
