Slow Down & See Waste as a Resource

-- Quote of the Day --

“…Advertising is very invasive in our lives right now it is getting harder to discern between news and advertising – it takes time to sort out what is new information and when we are being sold. And this creates a sense of discontentment with our lives… and if we are not aware of the influence of this we can be caught up in it. Such as being identified by brand… and we are working too hard to keep up with the things that identify us in this world. …The stress that this creates is overwhelming - to feel like you are not enough. …I have clients that I’ve asked to go on a magazine fast – when they stop looking at the things that are larger than life, better than anything could be because it is produced, then they begin to feel OK about where they are and their identity becomes about WHO they are. …When we get a sense of things are not OK is to …go and buy stuff because we are not connected to our own psychological strength, so that we can be more discerning about what is happening.”
