It’s time for another self-care tip! During my time compiling up these tips, I’ve come to realize that caring for oneself mentally, physically, and emotionally often comes from the simplest of tasks. This week, I’m sharing a tip that is not new by any means, but is so impactful: disconnecting from our devices. 


I know, you’ve heard it a million times. Yet, why can it be so difficult to set the phone or computer aside to be present and in the moment? Well, given our current climate, we are connecting even more-so via our technology. At times, I wonder how quarantine would even look if it hadn’t been for our devices. We can call friends, FaceTime family members, and stay connected via social media. Yet, with all this time spent on technology, it’s important to remember that it isn’t everything. 


Try working in at least 30 minutes a day where you’re intentionally away from all devices. My personal favorite time to do this is in the AM. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, mornings are absolutely sacred during shelter in place. My personal challenge is to start my day off with 15 minutes of no devices. The early morning creativity, thoughts, and preparation is crucial for the day, and can easily be interrupted when our technology beckons for our attention. If the morning isn’t the best time for you, try implementing this in your PM routine. In the same way, it can do wonders at centering you as you wind down. 

Use these uninterrupted times to be mindful, meditate, and reflect. Many of our original thoughts can be diminished due to an influx in technology usage, so it's especially important to unplug and re-center yourself to cultivate creativity and think with clarity.
