Red before bed

Red before bed

Would you believe I slept like a giant sized baby last night and it was bliss.

I’ve had a issue the past few weeks with sleep and my brain slowing down and really found I was getting only 3-4 hours of that sleep a night.

I personally cannot function properly on little sleep and it’s been hard to keep to my routine and not give into it. I function best on 7 hours.

Finally last night I slept. What was the secret I hear you say? Detaching from social media for most of my day, and before sleeping, turning the iphone away and just playing with the cats and relaxing my mind so that it slowed down and was almost like a slow steady heartbeat.

A lot has to be said for internet, social media and the like that’s so positive.

But a lot has to also be said about some of the impacts it has on you.

Draxtor Despres has an excellent attitude to it all. Switch off and engage with life.

I’ve learnt that he turns off regularly and spends time doing other things and only goes to social media at selected moments. It’s not 24/7 and actually I think we could all benefit from this.

Most of my issues stems from my Fibro but also I do feel engagement in these electronic activities has a great impact on us.

We don’t notice it until our minds are working overtime. Consider the fact many work on computers all day, then afterwards social media, television and gaming.

What opportunity are we giving ourselves to relax completely and interact with life around us?

We walk the streets and everywhere you look are people with their heads buried in their electronic devices, staring at the little screens as they walk.

What kind of world will we be in ten years from now? Will people even walk out their front doors?

Let’s take a positive action to limit our time and engage more with what is around us.

Visiting Esoteric and Social media

Visiting Esoteric and Social media

In todays Coffee I show you a glimpse of a lovely destination called Esoteric in Second Life. It is an adult area and so of course, try and be an adult when  visiting.

Its a great place to visit because of the event nights they have there for socialising and also the very beautiful grounds that were created for people to relax and explore.

It is adult themed  but I am not showing you those bits, so there!!

What I will show you is a glimpse of the grounds as I do my coffee vlog and talk about todays topic I promised in last weeks I would raise.

Details of the event nights will be below the video and I assure you, held by lovely people who truly make you feel welcome. Next Saturday is School night, so shake out those uniforms and see you there!

Coffee at Baja Norte #Be Kind on social media

Coffee at Baja Norte #Be Kind on social media

I have decided to bring forward my Coffee with Isa from a Monday to a Sunday.

With no blog on a Monday morning at all.

I am just switching it around for the heck of it. I plan to do more Sansar videos and will relegate them to Mondays and people can choose to watch or not depending on their interest.

In todays Coffee I am touching on something that troubles me of late and that is the behaviour of people on Social media, particularly in the virtual community. It seems to be getting worse and not better and so I am running a poll on this which the link will be at the start of the video to gain insight into how people are feeling about it.

Its a simple yes or no answer and no indication of who you are at all. I felt I would rather do it that way than put anyone in the position of a comment which may bring them any detriment in any way, shape or form.

The child within

The child within

Anyone who bothers to know me as a person knows that on a daily basis I fight with obstacles that throw themselves like a bus in front of me. Some days my “fight” feels so encompassing that I really could give up.

I’m tired of fake views, fake likes, fake news.

I’m tired of fake friends, fake smiles, fake fake fake.

In today’s society where everyone is defined by their social media’s there is a generation of people rising that no longer see what’s around them, no longer enjoy what’s around them. It’s only what is found at your finger tips that is becoming important. The affirmation that you seek via social media the likes, the comments etc.

The comments that reinforce your belief that as a person you are acceptable, you are liked. You are important.

Stop, have a conversation. Get to know someone. Jack who lives 1000 miles away may “like” your status or your photo. But “Jack” is not any more significant if you compare “Jack” to “Doris” you sister, your friend, your aunt, your cousin. Affirmation begins at home, so make sure that you look at those children and those close to you and make them feel that they are special, important and worthwhile.

Be the child again and remember what’s really important.
