A collection of quotes that are all based around the concept of a ‘monk mode.’
What does it mean to go ‘monk mode’?
‘Monk Mode’ is a self-imposed period of isolation or limited social interaction to focus on personal growth, self-improvement, or accomplishing a specific goal.
It can be seen as a metaphorical retreat, inspired by the dedicated and focused lives of monks who separate themselves from distractions of the outside world to concentrate on spiritual practices.
During ‘monk mode’, individuals often abstain from social media, unnecessary social interactions, and any other distraction that they personally find pulls them away from their goals.
The idea is to gain clarity, improve concentration, and achieve significant progress in chosen areas of life.
