Staying present in the moment one of the biggest challenges in our 24/7-constantly connected world. 
At any given moment, we are barraged with irrelevant updates, musings, and other distractions which hold no real bearing over our lives.

 Yet, we cannot seem to jump off the carousel of constant distractions. We are terrified to fall behind in the cycle of technology distractions. 

What if we miss an oh-so-important twitter update from the reality television star of the moment?  

In order to stay in the present moment, we have to take a step back and focus on what really matters to us in our lives.

Exercise #1:
  • Turn off all of your devices for 3 hours. Spend the quiet time reading a book, doing a crossword puzzle, drawing, writing, cooking, and/or cleaning. 
  • After the 3 hours are up, spend 30 minutes writing about the experience. How did being deviceless for 3 hours make you feel? Did you sail through without longing to check or post updates? Was it a struggle to be off the technological grid?
  • Would you be willing to go deviceless at least once a week?
    Song of the Day:  "Overture of The Magic Flute" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

    Meditation: By staying present in the moment, I am building a practice of patience and gratitude. I will carve out time to go deviceless at least once a week.
