Happy Monday! We hope you all enjoyed last week's holidays whether you celebrated Canada Day or July 4th. We really took advantage of our day off and unplugged and we LOVED it! So, that is our topic for today's #MindfulnessMonday.
We all know that all of our lives these days are lived just as much online as they are not online. And it's great. Social media gives us the opportunity to connect with more people than we ever could before and to learn and inspire and be inspired by individuals, brands and world events like never before.
But, as we all know it can become consuming; there comes a point where we find ourselves almost literally glued to our phones. So, every once in a while it is important to unplug and just BE. Be with your friends, be with your surroundings, be with nature and be with yourself. Enjoy moments of laughter and silence and blaring music and concurrent conversations free of hashtags and links and GIFs. When we do this, we realize how nice it can be.
We love being plugged in, but we also really love the feeling of unplugging. It's amazing what we discover when we have our focus on our immediate surroundings.
If you have not done so in a while, we encourage you to do so. It can be as simple as going for a walk without your phone, taking a bath and listening to music or hanging out with friends and leaving your phones behind.
Try it! Have an amazing week, namaste.
