Unplug to Recharge

Gina Velez

More living OFFLINE! Increased Reflection and SELF-LOVE

Technology has improved lives in so many ways, however, it continues to lose its shimmer and appeal to me this Summer Season.  Do you recall the last time you went to the beach? ocean? camping? lake? or favorite body of nature?  When was the last time you prepared and executed an exquisite meal for yourself just to self-love and enjoy the unknown?  What about a day trip of hiking or exploring?  I’m curious did you tap in to your heart’s experience?  How long could you savor the moment before posting to Facebook, Instagram or some other social media.  I remember a simpler time when we informed another as to where we were going (and if I didn’t respond by xx then call in the troops or come looking for me).

Sharing my personal experience…  For the most part, I find my essence being solo, but you may want to bring that special someone, children or animals, there is no “right” answer, just follow your heart.  I generally locate my bliss in the beauty of spending time with myself and definitely OFFLINE.  I then occupy the space to focus on my dreams in parallel notably enjoying the process (whatever wants to happen having no expectations, assumption or control agenda) I  treasure trove that I have more time and that my mind is less “busy”.  In this creative arena I develop into an intensely rooted presence while experiencing a lighter, calmer more balanced version of myself I name essence.  Time away repeatedly provides reflection, a place to evaluate my results; where I’m making my “energy deposits” and if it remains a good investment of my energy.

Now, To be transparent, I am by no means a Technology Natzi, on the contrary; I actually love it!!!  Without technology, I couldn’t have built my successful business(es) or connect with so many like-minded people.  It’s such a gift!  However, being a “virtual” gift means we need to create palpable ways to balance.  Listening to the physical body is so critical to support this balance and inner wisdom.

My invitation is to investigate what local choices can you schedule (daily or weekly) to take time and savor the beauty of your own backyard.  Are you willing to frame time to stop and smell the flowers…  plan a long walk… re-connect with nature… turn on some great music… dance… read a book… cook… go for a bike ride… write a song or poem… draw… collage or craft…  nap…. what is your heart’s true desire? What do you really want?  These baby step will lead you to those answers.  Start by establishing an impeccable agreement with yourself of when and how long your willing to unplug and recharge.  Where will you make your bliss?

Much Love, Gina
