I would like to challenge all the readers today. I challenge you to take a few "DISCONNECT DAYS" this year. We are all busy with electronic devices, social media communications and other distractions. Some people NEVER "turn it off," it's a way of life.
People are busy checking e-mails, responding to other communications, re-acting to other people's agendas and carrying stress around with them everyday. These are distractions and some days it's a constant, never ending stream. Take some time to rest and recover and set a goal to focus on being creative and productive. It's okay to enjoy a day of silence, reading a book or your favorite magazine, enjoying nature, doing something with your friends and family, or spending time actually talking to a person, instead of sending a text.
Use these days of silence to focus on a project for work or just to recover and revitalize. During the month of February, take time to enjoy LOVE! Do something meaningful without the use of an electronic device. Also, during this month, spend time learning about Black History, by visiting a museum or taking in a movie. Being it's the 50th Anniversary of "Bloody Sunday," take time to see the movie, "Selma" during a week day when the theater is NOT full.
Once you have fully disconnected, it will be time to "hit the re-set button!" When you disconnect from your usual daily activities, you can create depth, experience a great decompression from your busy surroundings, feel emotional relief, and return to work ready to be more effective and efficient. If you are the owner or employer, you are ready to help your employees become more independent.
Have you ever disconnected from your busy surroundings? If so, how many days did you disconnect last year? If you haven't tried it, make it a goal in 2015!:)
Create a Better Day!
