Welcome to A To Z On Mindfulness For Newbies
The twenty-first letter to be explored in A To Z on Mindfulness For Newbies is U. U is for Unplug
Unplug is disconnecting physically, mentally and spiritually from all outer world. It is also doing things that would contribute to one’s happiness and inner peace.
In our house, we usually switch off wi-fi, mobiles and other electronic devices in the night. And one rule we follow strictly is no mobile during meal times. Also, I practice Digital Detox Diet quite often.
This has improved our relationship quotient, health, bonding and our joy.
4 Simple Ways To Unplug and Recharge Yourself
Unplug A Day
Once in a week, I used to unplug from my online and social media presence. Usually, Sunday is the preferred day as my Unplug Day. I will switch off my mobile and connect fully with my family and friends. This helped me to do things that I love, savor the little joys and enjoy self-care.
Unplugging from the digital world gives me more time to do other things I enjoy. I can utilize that extra time more creatively like writing, blogging, coloring, and cooking. Anything done creative will boost our energy level and keeps us refreshed.
Life has new lessons for every day. But in our busy schedule, we tend to miss to learn from those lessons. So slow down to notice the little things in your life. See the beauty, color, and freshness of your balcony flowers. Appreciate the sunlight flowing into your house. Be grateful for this moment. Eat slowly and mindfully. Life can wait.
Look at the passing clouds over your window. Watching shapes in the passing clouds is my favorite childhood game. Spend time in your garden. Decorate your house with plants and flowers. Go Green. Mindfully watch something in nature for just 5 to 10 minutes. I did this exercise in my yoga class and watched a huge mountain nearby. Really it shattered my ego and left me with teary eyes.
