I saw this post on Facebook this week and clicked to Save. My apologizes because I can’t quote the source, and if an yone can provide credit, I’m happy to share.
It’s so true though. Unplugging IS a luxury these days.
Though I’ve enjoyed a wonderful holiday weekend, spending quality time with family and a fabulous overnight with my hubby, I did not unplug. I periodically checked email, posted to FB and kept up on the comings and goings of my pals and general news.
However, I’m officially unplugged for the rest of the week. That is, once I send this email.
I’m heading to my “happy place” for a few days (aka Kripalu :))
Here’s my plan:
Ask myself what I need in the moment – mind, body and spirit
Do lots of yoga
Eat whole, healthy foods
Nap if I feel like it
Write (again, if I feel like it)
This is something I do every year, even if I can only afford to do it for forty-eight hours (this year I’m splurging for 72!).
No matter what the next few days bring, I KNOW it will bring a renewed energy to all aspects of my life. It ALWAYS does.
How can you unplug?
PS If you can’t get away for a day or two….how about four hours?? My cohort Beth Leas from the TLC Center and I are hosting our quarterly Sparkle Retreat next weekend at the beautiful Redding Meditation Center. Go to http://www.bethleas.com/retreats.html to register.
