This video explains why letting your mind wander is like putting your money into a slot machine that ALWAYS loses you money.

Terrifying new statistics about the skyrocketing assimilation rate among non-Orthodox American Jews. The most troubling new trend? 32% of Jews born after 1980 say they are “Jews of no religion.” Hold on to the Torah very, very tightly, JewishMOM. It’s the only lifesaver available in these stormy 21st century seas.

      the explicit part is after the 9 minute mark, so I encourage you to watch the first nine minutes.It’s really fascinating stuff:)

  2. What creates TONS of mind wandering? The internet. It’s a mind wandering portal that never closes. So I think it’s wise to strictly limit your internet use for that reason only.
