Remember back when peoples’ thoughts weren’t a click away? Good or bad, you’d have to call or see them in person to hear what they were thinking. Now we all have a voice online. We’re free to say anything about anything or anyone. All the cares and worries of the world are dumped right in front of us.
For me it can be stressful and weigh on myself. I have to unplug. When I go visit family I purposely leave my phone and computer either off or in another room. I want to be available for true conversation with those I love. But this shouldn’t apply only to vacations. Most of you know I enjoy fishing. When I go fishing, 90% of the time I don’t look at my phone outside of checking the time. It’s a great way for me to unplug for a while, and just relax.
When you’re on a date, leave the phone off or away.When you’re with your kids, leave the phone away. Instead of checking whatever online, pour that time into the people who deserve it. The ones who are right there with you. They deserve your undivided attention and you deserve theirs.
Change always starts with you. Make “unplugging” a priority and others will follow. See how it effects you and those around you. I promise you’ll see positive change.
Let us know times and ways you make unplugging a priority! The way you do it could impact other Dream Warriors!
