Welcome to Deferred Happiness!

One of my mindfulness practices is to avoid instant gratification – the kind of addiction that social media platforms of today permeate into our minds. Our waking hours are filled with the relentless urge to keep checking on our inboxes and our social media feeds. A mind that constantly submits to these distractions loses its capability to ponder long and hard over matters of importance. It would be a disaster to lose the attention span required to partake in activities that are cognitively more demanding but are eventually more rewarding, such as reading books, writing, working to understand or develop hard ideas or learning practical hands-on skills.

This blog is one such outlet that helps me practice focus and mindfulness as I try to make it a habit to sit down and pen a few words every so often. I’ll be happy to hear from you at nitin.n.puranik@gmail.com
