10 Nov MASTERING YOUR MIND IN THE DIGITAL ERA (2C MAD) (FULL)

Getting to know our inner-self becomes almost mandatory if we want to live a good and productive life. But this endeavour is more difficult than ever due to the exponential external stimuli and distractions. Our minds are more scattered than ever and, as a result, we feel de-focused and unproductive which can lead to a negative spiral of anxiety, depression, addiction and general dissatisfaction with our choices. Traditional and new techniques that allow us to become more aware of how our minds, our thoughts, our emotions and our bodies work together and how we react to the growing external stimuli around us are very helpful in this context. Only by investing some time in our own self-discovery we can enhance our self-awareness as a first step to further learn how to regulate ourselves in the myriad of challenges and stressors that surround us.
