Information Overload

Information Overload

Have you ever read through something, and felt confused? I sure have. Recently I was reviewing a legal document. I haven’t studied law —  much less contract law — and I wasn’t sure about the implications of certain words and phrases. I decided to look some things up, but I didn’t know where I should begin. After 15 minutes of research, I didn’t feel any more confident that I could interpret the document correctly. I asked for help by calling the state office referenced in the contract. They definitively answered my question in less than one minute (no joke — one minute). 

Information has never been more accessible. With smartphones at our fingertips, we can look up any subject in mere seconds. We have access to tons of information. However, I’ve personally found that if we aren’t familiar with the subject, knowing where to find the information we need can be challenging, interpreting it can be harder, and applying that new information can be even harder still. 

We all have specialties. Yours may be contract law, classroom management, coding, etc. If your specialty isn’t health and wellness, don’t feel like you have to figure everything out on your own. A health and wellness professional will be able answer some of those questions that a quick internet search can’t. They can guide you along the path to better health and more good days.

Thanks for reading. I hope you have a safe and healthy week!
