10 Things To-Do When You Unplug (with images, tweets & vines)

Try something new or something you haven't done in a long while. Unplugging will help you discover some things you may have forgotten about. And unplugging surely will open up whole new avenues to you.
craig daniels's insight:

I've yet to meet anyone who told me their life seemed to have more time in it than it used to have. Generally people talk about how they have less time and never seem to finish what they have to do within the time they do have.


Spending time on the internet offers an amazing array of tools and information to help you get things done easier and with more efficiently but, often when you look up from the computer monitor or from your smartphone the day has slipped away.


We all need to strike a balance between being online and being unplugged from the net. Unplugging doesn't have to be a draconian act where we experience withdrawals. Unplugging can be as simple as getting up from the desk and stepping outside for 10 minutes or maybe having lunch with friends with a no cell phone or tablet rule.


Check out the 10 things to do and for an ongoing info on unplugging check out www.iunplug.com anytime or if the irony is too great just read a book.

86,400 Seconds Unfold Each Day In Your Life.

86,400 Seconds Unfold Each Day In Your Life. | Mindful | Scoop.it
We all have 86,400 seconds to spend every day, and at the end of the day, they’re gone. How are you using yours?


"

I read this analogy about time once. Imagine there is a bank that every morning deposits $86,400 into your account. And every day it happens over and over again. The only catch, according to this idea, is that you cannot save that particular deposit until the next day.


The $86,400 you get in the morning is gone in the evening. You can’t use any of it in advance and you can’t pile it up.


What would you do? Would you think carefully about how you’d use it every day?"

craig daniels's insight:

Within each second each of us can pivot toward a new richer and more satisfying life and in the next second we can take our first step in that new life.


Think about what you just read, in one second you can decide on a new direction for you life and in the next second you can start living that life. Seems unbelievable doesn't it, but it's not.


Each choice we make, at least when we finally make it takes less than a second and lifting our foot to walk forward into our new life also takes just a second.


So why is change so hard? Read the above article for more on this and to see what happening in social media and mindfulness check out Zen Automat
