Luke 6:45 tells us that our words and actions will reflect our thought life. While we’re not always in control of our thoughts, we have some control over how we fill our minds.
You already know about everything in life and online that fuels fear, comparison, negativity, and hopelessness. Spending too much time focused on those things will impact your mental health. That’s why it’s helpful to disconnect.
Disconnecting may look like putting away your devices and spending time outside. It could mean meditating on Scripture or listening to a hope-filled song. You may choose to call a friend when you feel trapped in a spiral of worry and doubt.
Disconnecting isn’t living in denial. You’re not trying to ignore your problems or pretend they don’t impact your life. Instead, disconnecting is an intentional choice to pause, breathe, and be mindful.
