I was with a friend last night and he told me an interesting story. He used to experience severe back pain. While on vacation for one week, he decided to put his cell phone in the hotel safe. He didn't look at it once while on vacation. Magically, his back pain disappeared.
This story really caused me to pause. Do we ever stop and think about the toll this overly connected society has on our mind, body and spirit? What is the cost of being perpetually connected to a device and being constantly reactive? Are any of us really that important that we can't put our phones away for even one hour a day?
Try it. Turn your phone off when you are eating dinner or in a meeting. Make specific hours where cell phones are allowed in the home. Or set hours when they are not - whatever you and your family can live with! Try it for one week and let me know how it went! xo
The one constant in life is change. How we navigate that change is who we are. Creating sustainable change is a more deliberate action and gives us the life we want. This is what my practice and my life mission is all about. All of my life experiences, work history and spiritual journey have lead me to this path - to help others create transformation in their lives and live lives that they love.
