When was the last time you powered off your cellphone? Most people don’t…the battery drains, they recharge it and while it’s recharging they are already connected to another device…a watch, a tablet, a laptop, etc. As our month of self-reflection comes to a close I want to give our subscribers the gift of permission to disconnect and see what you’re missing when your eyes are glued to a screen.
The challenge this week is to take some time out of 1 day to go on a Vision Quest. It comes from Native American tradition, however for our purposes we are using it to disconnect from technology and reconnect to ourself. Prepare by letting people know you will be unavailable for a pre-determined amount of time that you decide (try for at least 15 minutes). Some people like to spend as long as a whole day, it’s up to you and the time you have available. Bring a journal and write down any thoughts or ideas that come up along the way and see where this takes you. I can tell you that hundreds of people have participated in this activity that has resulted in really cool experiences, meeting new people and deep self-reflection that has led to happiness.
I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
