Pornhub, one of the world’s largest porn sites, is seeing a dramatic spike in their worldwide traffic.

As people self-isolate, many are being plagued with boredom and turning to porn to pass the time.

While mainstream society has in large part accepted porn use as a normal part of life, experts are warning that pornography use is actually incredibly harmful.

  • Porn is more addictive than heroin.
  • Porn use is the number two reason that couples divorce.
  • Porn use has been credited with a dramatic increase in peer to peer sexual assault amongst youth.
  • Porn use has been credited with an increase in child sexual assault.
  • Porn use is limiting users ability to engage in real life sexual intimacy.
  • Porn use steals people’s ability to experience joy through dopamine flooding.
  • Porn use damages those involved in its production, many people featured in porn are being raped and filmed against their will.

What if, rather than damaging yourself and others during this time, you used this time to make a difference in the world.

What if, instead of engaging in pornography use at this time, you found purpose in this season?

It is well documented that Isaac Newton came up with the theory of gravity during a time of self-isolation!

Here are three ways that you can be productive during this time of self-isolation.

1. Reach out to someone that might be isolated or in need.

The Kindness Pandemic has taken off during this time. Why? Because serving others often brings incredible joy! During a time of panic, where people are full of fear, it can be so helpful to turn off the news and turn on your creativity for how you can make someone’s day.

What if you wrote a letter to encourage your neighbours? Made a funny Tik Tok to brighten user’s days, or did a Facebook live and encouraged all your friends?

2. Work on that dream you’ve had.

Everyone has a dream, but not everyone sees that dream become a reality.

Whether it’s to start a business, build a social media empire, fix up a car, or fix a friendship, people talk about change but don’t always walk that talk.

There are many reasons why people don’t turn their dreams into their destiny. One of the big reasons is, “I just don’t have the time!” Well now you do.

The world need the gift you’ve got, so get started! This course could help you put your intent into action- FROM HERE TO THERE.

3. Pray.

Everyone is saying we will need a miracle to see Coronavirus end. Well, now could be a good time to start praying. Maybe you aren’t used to praying. That’s ok.

It’s simple, just start talking to God like you would a friend.

Here is a great talk on how to pray.

This season could be a gift for you. You can come out of this broken, or better.

What will you choose?

Let’s change the world!
