Nurture Yourself – Unplug

14 Comments

Almost everything will work again, if you Unplug for a few minutes, including You!

~~~~~~~~~

This post is about taking time to Unplug from the daily pressure of trying to keep up with social media. We fool ourselves into thinking that we have a grip on how much time we spend on our computers or smart phones but we do not. Our concerns for missing something that we believe is important for us to know prevents us from seeing the addiction. Communication has broken down between people.

For example:

I was having dinner at a restaurant before a play my husband was taking me to see for my birthday in July. It’s a lovely Japanese Restaurant with delicious food, sushi and furnished with traditional japanese paintings and decor.

A family of four came in and were seated at the next table beside ours. Shortly after getting their menu’s and ordering, they all grabbed their phones and focused on the screens before them. Sadly, they did that the entire time they were eating. No conversation occurred during the entire hour they sat at the table. After the father paid for the check, they got up and left.

Are we unable to leave media behind during a short one hour of eating?

Technology has given us many benefits. We can skype family in other states. We can talk and see members of our family during times when traveling isn’t possible. Being able to research subjects or learn on-line is a phenomenal tool; but, somethings been lost. We need to find it soon. Our children are missing many things they could experience from their parents or extended families. They’re lost by a mesmerizing screen that is constantly calling them.

Will this one day be an addiction like drugs and alcohol?

I hope not. Perhaps, finding a middle road for all to be happy can be a topic of conversation: at dinner?

Namaste,

Isadora 🙏🏻

I honor the place in you

in which the entire universe dwells.

I honor the place in you

which is of Love, and of Truth,

of Light and of Peace.

When you are in that place in you

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of whom I am no matter what venue I choose to express it.

  2. I see the exact scene all too often. It is sad that this is the new definition of quality time. 😢

  3. I agree Isadora. I am saddened to hear that a family would do that at a restaurant. I probably spend too much time on my computer. At night it doesn’t matter, I would probably be watching some rubbish on TV anyway. I enjoy the benefits of connection. Have a lovely 2019 Happy New Year from Australia 🙂

    • YAY … Australia in the house. Good to see you. Welcome again …
      I believe there can be some interesting things to see on television. I enjoy documentaries. The lives of those who’ve come before us. Learning about them, in whatever genre, teaches us. Some of their struggles help give our lives meaning. We’re not so different when it comes to the hard times we go through. Perhaps, what’s changed now in families is the permissiveness. Parents need to set limits. They need to be parents. My daughters never saw me as a friend. Discipline require them not to like you so much. And, I don’t mean beatings. Just strong firm NO’s. Anyway, let’s hope the future is brighter. May the new year bring you good health, joy, happiness and more LOVE than your heart can hold.
      Happy 2019
      Isadora 😎
