Putting a Toe in the Water

Yesterday, we spoke about learning to be still.  By no means do I intend to make it sound easy!  Even now, I struggle with unplugging.  Frequently, I will be doing a craft and still have the television on in the background.  Not that I am actually watching it...I will just have it on as background noise. Besides being a waste of electricity, that is just plain stupid!

It is not necessary to go cold turkey!  Begin with just muting your phone one weeknight.  You don't even need to turn off the television.  Actually, watch your favorite shows...but without reaching for your phone every few minutes just to check what's going on.  Actually listen to the dialogue in the show!

On the weekend, try turning everything off for just a couple of hours.  No huge commitment...just an hour or two to take a walk, read a book, or create something.  Before you know it, you will look forward to your personal "quiet time."

Unplug.  You won't regret it!
