Last week I took a few days away.
When I arrived I sat down in one of these chairs and wrote down my intentions for this time.
Unplug is probably obvious…to take a break from screens, social media, email, etc. That was an easy one and I continue to do this more as I see how much it enhances my well being.
Relax is also self-explanatory. I hiked, did some yoga, and read a lot.
Process may need more explanation. The previous 3-4 months held a lot! Physically, emotionally, mentally, and even spiritually.
I hoped from one thing to another without really allowing time to process many of these experiences. My hope was to journal about them, and I did a little, but not as much as I hoped. However, I did do some introspection and reflection, particularly on my drive about how these months have impacted me.
Finally, recalibrate. This is a word I’ve been playing with over the past few months.
Miriam Webster says:
verb (used with or without object),re·cal·i·brat·ed, re·cal·i·brat·ing. to correct or adjust the gradations or settings on (a measuring instrument, sensor, or other piece of precision equipment): If your battery fuel gauge is still inaccurate after following these steps, you may need to manually recalibrate the gauge.
It’s a way to reset, course correct, adjust for better results.
I believe we are regularly in need of a recalibration. For example, we have now entered the season of fall. Lots of recalibrating necessary…might be our wardrobe, foods we eat, the movement we engage in, our skin care routine and much more.
As I make preparations to launch The Recalibration (get a peek below), I’m noodling on the concept.
What does recalibrate mean to you? Where do you need to recalibrate in your life?
I’d love to hear from you.
