I ran across this post on the Women in Business blog, and thought it was worth sharing. We’re so tethered to our electronic devices, the internet, and social media, that sometimes we forget to slow down and enjoy life. For this reason, Gwen Bell suggests taking a break every now and then “Not just for yourself, for your community. For the clients you serve. Unplugging gives you an opportunity to miss the work you do. Missing is good, it creates a desire to connect at a heart level.”
I wholeheartedly agree! Even if we only unplug for an hour, a day, or week, a digital sabbatical gives us time for the kind of thought, self-discovery, and rejuvenation that can’t happen when we’re constantly tied to technology.
