Weekend Challenge- Unplug and Be Free

Friday, March 15, 2013

Here in London, we are seeing a slight reprieve from our wintery weather.  The sun is starting to peak out at intervals and it is still light after work.  Spring is on it's way.  Time to come out of hibernation.

This weekend, I challenge you to unplug for 1 hour.  Turn off the mobile phone  or better yet, leave it at home.  Shut down the computer.  Put down the remote.

Instead have a conversation over coffee with a friend or partner.  Go for a run (without music. Enjoy the sounds around you).  Play a board game.  Put together a puzzle.  Go bird watching.  Sleep.

With all of the technology available, it can become a chain to work or other demands.  It also disconnects us from interacting with people face to face.  Take an hour to spend with yourself or a few cherished love ones without worry about who emailed you or liked you on Facebook.

Let me know how you spent this hour.  I will probably play a game with my husband if I can convince him to disconnect too (Six Nations is on this weekend).
