Time to Unplug and Disconnect
We are living in a fast paced, hyper-connected world. One where it’s easier to send off a thousand texts with someone, rather than pick up the phone for a short call, so that you can continue working on a million other things simultaneously.
Going back to our Tenet no. 3, which discusses making a shift in our lives, not just our diets, and the Tony Federico article I posted yesterday, make me think much further into my communication with others and my literal connectedness with the world I’m living in. I realize I am more reliant on technology, digital communication, and virtual worlds, when I need to making sure I focus on real life communication and existance as well.
Being that this week is Valentine’s Day week, a week where we are prone to visibly showing our loved ones that we care, I thought it would be nice to share some articles which give some helpful tips on disconnecting and engaging in better communication with those around you, not only for your own benefit (hello, productivity and solace) but also for strengthening your relationships with others. I love to give gifts from the heart, but this week I want to also focus on gifts that can benefit these relationships for a long time to come.
- Personal Favorite: Ask questions and make eye contact.
- Extra-noteworthy tip from this list: establish a healthy morning routine. I cannot stress the importance of this one enough!
I would love to hear other ways you unplug and disconnect so that you may reconnect with other things. Please share your tips in a comment!
