A Simple Guide for a Mindful Digital Life

Two thoughts cannot coexist at once: if the clear light of mindfulness is present, there is no room for mental twilight.’ ~ Nyanaponika Thero

Ever feel like you’re two different people?

You get up in the morning, eat your breakfast, and go to work. You go out with your friends and hang out with your family. Maybe you read a book before going to bed. On the weekends, you try to get out of the house – go for a hike in the woods or visit some relatives. This is the physical you.

Of course, between all these experiences, you also exist online writing emails, browsing the web, updating your blog, and ordering pizza. This is the digitalyou. Fifteen years ago, the two almost never collided, but today, the digital world has expanded far beyond what we ever thought it would.

Two worlds that once existed exclusively have serendipitously collided. It’s a wonderful time to be alive.
