Thoughts from National Day of Unplugging

I hope that many of your enjoyed #nationaldayofunplugging. It was nice to take 24 hours to #unplug from my devices.  I was able to take some time to myself which is always needed. I read, ate good food, spent time with my family, went to Haute Sauna Studio, shopped, was able to breathe and think without any noise or distraction.

One of the things that I did during the day was to observe. I watched couples use their phones while they ate brunch, women taking pictures of their outfits at a clothing store and even observations of myself.  I remembered that sense of peace without my phone.  When you don’t have your phone you’re able to live in the moment and be present. It’s truly a beautiful gift.

Our brains were never meant to be processing so much shit at once.  There have been studies done that show our devices are causing us to stress, have sleep deprivation, be less productive, have anxiety, have depression and the list goes on an on.  But no one wants to do anything about it.  Because we’re addicted.  Think about it.  The first step to addiction is admitting you have a problem. And pretty much everyone would need to be going to a meeting over this addiction.  WE NEED OUR PHONES.  Right? I NEED TO BE ON MY PHONE FOR MY JOB.  FOR MY KID.  FOR MY LIFE.

I know that I have an uphill “battle” with helping people with my digital detox program because we’re all in denial.  I was in denial for a long time too.  It’s time we look at the portion control of our device time and find balance with it.

Everyday Life Coach Podcast – Episode 5 – Savor the Shower

This week’s episode is how to savor the shower. Taking a shower is not self-care. I want to point this out ahead of time. Taking a shower is what everyone needs to do every day for their own personal hygiene. I’m just saying. HOWEVER what you do IN the shower could be a form of self-care. I want you to start SAVORING shower time. No eye rolls right now.

 

What I want you to try to incorporate into your shower is:

  1. Incorporate aromatherapy
  2. CalmMusic
  3. Head Massage – here is the one that I talk about on the podcast!
  4. Water Visualization
  5. Affirmation/Prayer/Gratitude
I hope this helps. I can’t wait to hear from you all once you try this. SAVOR YOUR SHOWER PEOPLE!  Get the full details of these things on the podcast!
