Hello! Happy Monday!
This won’t be a long one, but I have gone without a cell phone for the past 2 and a half days, which may seem like a short while but to most of us addicted to technology it could seem like ages. I get into the habit of scrolling through Facebook or Instagram right before I got to bed, and for the past 3 nights I haven’t had the option to do that and it has been quite nice. I think my phone breaking was a blessing in disguise because it reminded me that it is so important to be in the moment and just be with yourself. Let your mind wander and not be distracted with what everyone else is doing. Technology is great for so many things but we do have to remind ourselves to breathe and just be without it. We are reading a book called You Are A Badass: How to Stop Doubting your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life, by Jen Sincero, and it is absolutely amazing! Definitely recommend that to anyone, even if you are already living an awesome life! She says, over and over again, that in order to live up to your fullest potential and be the happiest you can be you must take time to just be present in the moment. Weather that be meditation, praying, deep breathing, anything - make it happen every day.
Have a great week!
