Wellness Week Day 4

Now that we have cleaned up and caught up and scheduled those outstanding "to do's" I think it's time to take a step back from the digital devices (ironic for a blogger to be saying to the person reading this on a device I know, but stay with me...)

Wellness Week Day 4 - Disconnect.
Today is one of the holiest Jewish holidays of the year (L'Shana Tova!) which means a few hours in synagogue with family and a lively and delicious festive meal. It also means several hours in no-phone zones and for that I am extremely thankful. Sometimes being literally unable to check email, send texts or peruse social media is just what you need to realize how out of control being plugged in 24-7 had become. So today, go for a walk and leave your phone at home. Shut the laptop, walk away from the tablet. Get outside, soak in the tub, pick up an old fashioned book... However you do it, spend at least 1 hour in a totally device-less state and just enjoy the peace and quiet.
