We just spent a few days in Big Sur and the lack of cell coverage coupled with no TV, phone or wifi at our place meant I was completely unplugged.
It felt weird at first. I had a little anxiety about work, about Zinger and Now Voyager, about life.
And then, a funny thing happened. I read a book, uninterrupted. I read a lot in my regular life but my iPhone is usually nearby and if it makes one of those cute little sounds I check it out. This time, no sounds. And it was nice.
I think all that fresh air and lack of electronic stimuli led to a better night sleep too. I slept a lot and had lovely happy dreams.
So now I need to incorporate some of those practices into my real life. I can turn off devices and I’ll start by turning this one off…just as soon as I finish this post 🙂
