Are you like me? A little addicted to your phone?

In 2015, Manoush Zomorodi challenged the listeners of her podcast Note to Self to change their relationship with their phones. She led thousands through a week of experiments designed to help them reassess their technology habits, unplug for part of each week and jump-start their creativity.

It became a lesson in realizing that “doing nothing” is vital in life and that taking control of phone use is important so we can focus on what really matters to us.

I’m going to take the challenge!
(and try to convince my family to join me)
Will you join me?

Check out the Ted Talk and now there’s a new book (at vpl, audio).

I thought this video was worth sharing.

William, Harry and Kate talk about the importance communication. Quite something for members of the Royal Family to be talking about this! They talk about how it can be difficult and uncomfortable to start certain conversations but how it’s important to not bottle up our feelings as it can have a detrimental effect on our mental health (I would say physical health too). These conversations can be a form of medicine. It’s so true isn’t it!? Feels so good to clear the air if something is bothering us.

I’d also add that exercise is a form of medicine. And not only physically but also mentally. You always feel better after exercising or a good talk!

Take a moment to consider how you might apply this to your life.

If meditation interests you but you don’t know where to start this is exactly what you need:

screen-shot-2016-11-23-at-4-33-33-pm

It’s a meditation program you can use on your phone or computer.  It starts with a free 10-day program, just 10 minutes a day, and then if you want to continue, it’s a monthly membership fee; it’s like a gym membership for your mind.

I’ve been using it for the last month and have found it very helpful. It gets you grounded, reduces stress and increases mindfulness throughout the day.  After you’ve done the basic training you can choose meditation packs that focused on specific areas like health, sports, relationships, performance, etc.

Let me know if you try it and how it goes. Would love to hear how you like it!
