I’m working on getting better at finding a few minutes to unplug every day. I typically work 10-12 hours per day and find it hard to unplug – especially thanks to Steve Jobs and the iPhone. I can have instant communication at my fingertips 24/7.
I am finding that keeping it simple is my best bet.
Recently in the midst of a busy which included driving from Norwalk to Stamford to Bridgeport to Stamford back to Norwalk (not unusual in a typical day), I stopped at the new Whole Foods in Darien.
I got a mini chipwich (isn’t it cute?) and my first green tea latte. I opened my book (I always have a book in my bag) and took a 20 minute snack break to read. Just like the good ol’ kindergarten days. It was a little slice of heaven. Although I confess next time I’m opting for regular green tea, which I love, ’cause the latte tasted and smelled like grass.
But nevertheless to be “unplugged” is priceless!
