Unplug to Recharge

Yesterday I put a post on social media to say I was going to use Sunday daytime to unplug and spend time with my boys.

And that’s what I did. 

It felt good. I noticed I wasn’t tempted to sneak back on to the familiar scroll that often consumes too much of my time. I had given myself permission to switch off. And publicly declared I was doing so. Further permission. 

As a Coach I’m immersed in the world of content planning at the moment and thinking more strategically about what and when I’m posting. We are encouraged to plan and prewrite our posts. There’s a lot about this that I love, preplanning will help me use my time smarter, and in a busy world of juggling life and business this is always welcome.

But Sundays, what about Sundays?

I wrote about values last week and the behaviors we can take to reflect them. 

Switch off Sundays will continue for me, it’s the old honesty thing, I’m not going to pretend I’m here when I’m not, and I’m not going to pretend I’m always switched on when I’m most definitely not.

I chose this venture to create balance and that’s what I will reflect in my work and what I show to the people who take the time to follow me.

Have you unplugged lately?
