“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.”

Anne Lamott

Unplugging could mean going away for a vacation like Chris and I did last week. (You can see some idyllic moments from scenic Vancouver Island in this post. If you look really closely, you can see a mother bear and her cub looking for food on the rocky shoreline.) More often, unplugging is about finding a way to create a pause in your everyday routine. Maybe that’s about drinking your morning coffee without checking your email at the same time, taking a lunch break where you actually get out of the office or going for a walk in the woods. Perhaps it’s about developing a spiritual practice, taking up a new hobby or being creative. These regular times to unplug, help us to reset, to get reconnected with who we are and to remind ourselves of what matters to us.

What is your version of unplugging? What will you do to take it to the next level?
