CE Insight: Embracing Digital Detox

This week I wrote about how we attune to our world and how the quality of our attention changes the way we see the world.

In the hustle and bustle of modern life, it's easy to lose touch with our natural state and soul amid the constant buzz of digital distractions. These devices change how we attune.

We all live in this world and these technologies are often necessary in our lives. But intentionally unplugging from the noise is important to cultivate attention to our natural state.

Today I'll share some thoughts on wellness through the practice of digital detox.

1. Sacred Boundaries: Set aside dedicated times to disconnect from screens, allowing for moments of stillness and connection with loved ones. Maybe it's after 6PM, or no phone until noon, maybe it's an entire Sunday with no phone. Try it out, and see how it feels. If you can pull it off for an entire day, I'd put money on it that your mind will be quieter and you will feel better.

2. Nature's Healing Energy: Without your phone, spend time outdoors to rejuvenate your spirit and reconnect with the rhythms of the earth. Whether it's a leisurely walk in the park or a hike through the woods, immersing yourself in nature, especially mindfully, helps bring us back into ourselves and nourishes the soul.

3. Listen to Your Inner Landscape: If you notice you are mindlessly scrolling content or picking up your phone for no particular reason, pause. Put your phone down and just notice how you feel. Notice your body making content with something. Notice your breath, your emotional state, your posture. Be with it for a few minutes and see what changes. See if it's hard to listen in as your attention may want to pull you out.

As always, try these things with a sense of playfulness and curiosity. Be an explorer of your own experiment.

Transform you, transform the world.
