“I Love Me” Tip: Unplug for a Period of Time

Today is Day 16 of my 31 Days of Self-Love posts to celebrate Self-Love Month with suggestions for jump-starting your own self-love and joining The Self-Love Movement™.

I admit, I don’t own a Smart phone or any of the tech gadget that seem to be prevalent nowadays. I refuse to walk around the city looking down at some mini screen as it seems like half the people I pass on the streets of Manhattan do. Something I notice that’s common among them is most aren’t smiling. They’re intent on reading or responding to a text. While it connects you to people electronically, it disconnects you from people on a personal level, which isn’t good for you.

Many people who are always on their tech gadget seem stressed. And there’s a feeling that shutting it of for even ten minutes might make you miss something important. Being tied to your phone can keep you “on” all the time. That increases stress because it keeps you from completely relaxing.

If you’re one of those people who are married to your phone or iPad or another gadget, give yourself a short break from it. I’d recommend a day but try an evening or even an hour or two where everything is turned off. Enjoy the people around you in person. And enjoy the silence and let your hands relax. Doing this regularly can help reduce stress, which is a great way to say, “I love me!”

Shutting Yakkers Up Nicely
