Whoa, this year is flying by! It’s more than half way over now, can you believe it? Sheesh… Let’s enjoy Summer while we can, shall we? It’s hot hot hot here, but still beautiful.
Take a day off from your phone/computer. No internet, no Facebook, no texting, nothing. Just go outside and enjoy time with the people you care about.
Make a conscious effort to leave your phone at home or in the car when you’re going out with people.
Make a “phone basket” for your table. Everyone puts their phones in the baskets during dinner and they’re not allowed to touch them until everyone is done. Bonus, if you go out to eat, the first person to touch their phone pays for everyone!
Make an effort to not look at your computer/phone at least an hour prior to bedtime. This will help you sleep better.
Have a “No TV Week” where the TV stays off all week. Instead read, play board games, talk to people, etc.
Take up meditation.
Start a gratitude journal and write each day one thing that you were grateful for that day.
Start journaling of any kind, and make sure to do it each night before bed so you are fully present for that day.
Pay attention to the small things and the environment around you. Be thankful for the little things and living for the moment — it will enable you to cultivate more positive experiences.
Basically just take the time to actively be present in your life, and then write about it on your blog and join us!
