Technology has some amazing benefits and I take advantage of it daily!
Everything is available at our fingertips: shopping, news, social media, music, baking, to name a few. No wonder why it can feel non-negotiable to be on our phones all the time.
But just like cheese, too much of it can have a negative effect on our body.
Did you know that:
Our smartphones are such an important part of our day that we can forget the importance of unplugging and be more present in our lives.
I recently took a seven day camping trip to Sequoia National Park where I was forced to be unplugged because I had no cell phone reception. It was exactly what I needed.
I felt completely relaxed and rejuvenated because there was no pressure to check my email, text messages, social media or calendar.
I had time to focus on myself and reflect on some things in my life that I've been ignoring or putting off.
Because of the ability to be present with my thoughts and emotions, I was able to make an important business decision that's been weighing on me for over a year.
It was a reminder that I need to practice being unplugging more often, even if it's for little slivers of time during a busy work week!
Not sure if you need to unplug? If you answer yes to any of the following questions then YES you need to unplug!
Don't beat yourself up, we can all do a better job at unplugging and being more present! I suggest setting up a schedule so that this practice stays top of time.
Here's my routine, give it a shot!
NO SCREEN TIME SCHEDULE:
DAILY: 1-2 hours before bed and during 1 break a day.
WEELY: 4+ hours on a day off
MONTHLY: 1 full day
YEARLY: 1-2 weeks during vacation
