What are you feeding on?
As for the soul, let's feed on the remembrance of the Lord (zikir in the form of repetitive sacred verse, or just plain thoughts of the Almighty), Quranic verses, salawat and happy positive thoughts.
Err...it's not a matter of speech ya. I am a regular Quran reader who is obsessed with salawat - all thanks to the tawfik from Allah.
Wama tawfiqi illah billah, alaihi tawakkaltu wa ilaihi unib
"My success can only come from Allah, in Him I trust and unto Him, I look"
How do you define distractions?
Irrelevant, unimportant social media feeds.
People who try to derail you from your life path/goals.
How do you starve distractions?
Just be in your own zone, stay on course, do what matters to you and anything that makes you happy.
And remember, what makes you happy doesn't need approval from anyone else.
This is a reminder for one nephew of mine who is busy focusing on his studies. Feed your focus Mer, and before long, you gonna fly. "We got wit, we don't do ___."
You know what to fill in the blank ; )
