Unplug on weekends. You gain more than you miss.

I’ve spent the last several weekends offline and I’m amazed at how much more refreshed I feel on Monday mornings when I do this.   Several years ago, I stopped wearing a watch on the weekends.  It was my signal to myself that I didn’t have to answer to a schedule.  Taking a break from email gives you time to focus on activities you don’t have time for during the week.

Unplugging enables you to focus on the now and not the future or the past.

I want to use technology to enhance my life rather than feel I am a slave to it.  I don’t feel the need to be as accessible.  How about you?

    Sarah I spent a week this summer in New Mexico writing and meditating with 20 others in total silence. No iPhone, no laptop, TV or radio. It was glorious! Thanks for reminding me that I can have mini retreats on the weekend. Hope you’re well!

    Susan, great to hear from you. Your New Mexico trip sounds terrific. That was a wonderful thing to do for yourself. Hey, I’d love just one day of silence!
