In this highly connected digital world, it’s easy to get lost looking at our smartphones and losing contact with the people right in front of us (or even the streets around us if we’re walking!).
The blessing of technology is its 24/7 access. And the curse of technology is its 24/7 access.
At one of my recent Visioning Your Best 2017 workshops, one participant commented how grateful he felt to take the time to be still. And one of my clients shared that she was looking for ways to be present.
How about you? Are you feeling the need for more spaciousness in your life?
One of the pathways to creating more present-minded focus in your life is to dial down your digital connection.
I use the words “dial down” because I’m not advocating for you to get rid of your smartphone. The task at hand is to consciously invite more moments of present-moment awareness without distractions constantly bombarding you.
When you dial down your digital connection, you allow space to dial up your moments of present awareness.
In this light, here are 5 ways I’d like to offer you to experiment with dialing down your digital connection.
Now that you have these different options, what’s next? This leads me to your coaching assignment for the week:
For extra bonus points, invite a friend to do this with you and check in with each other to see how it goes.
Again, the point of this exercise isn’t to cut you off completely from digital connections.
The real point is to give you greater power to choose the kinds of experiences you want to have.
Rather than passively saying yes to obtrusive distractions that take you away from the present moment, you have the power to consciously say yes to cultivating more moments of spaciousness in your everyday life.
I’d love to hear what other ways you have to digitally disconnect, or how this experiment works for you. Share with others, let’s create a learning community and leave a comment below.
Note: If you’re feeling the need for support in creating a life filled with more spaciousness, purpose and joy, I offer a 20 minute complimentary assessment that may provide you with the insight and resources you need in this moment. To learn more about this, click here.
