Self-Care = Connection

Self-Care = Connection

Self-care = connection

It is Friday evening and I am sitting on the couch with my family.  I look across the couch and we are all holding at least one electronic devise and the TV is on.  There is something wrong with this picture.  We need to spend time connecting not to the internet or You Tube but to each other.

I am committing to a non-plugged in weekend starting after I post this short post.  I commit to self-care in the form of connecting with my family, spending on myself and being aware of being in every moment I can.  

What we sit and do on our electronics is of no value- really- tomorrow will we even really remember what we read on Facebook or Twitter.  Yes, they things have value and a place and time but not all of our time and not the highest of our values.

My top values that I have recently re-evaluated are family, spirituality and simplicity.  I want to make all choices in a manner that lines up with my values.  I encourage you to do the same.

Take away tip- I challenge you to unplug and be present, be with those you love, create real life memories and take lots of mental snapshots to preserve the memories in your mind.

Here is to a wonderful non electronic weekend.  

Love and light
