Our generation is so prone to being overstimulated. From social media, to texts, and constant push notifications, we get so much information at once. We are exposed to so many different viewpoints, opinions, tragic news and trauma, that stuff can take a toll on you after a while, seeing it constantly day in a day out.
At the beginning of the month, I felt a huge urge to unplug myself. Take a minute to talk to myself, meditate, get a grasp on my feelings and thoughts and just unplug. I deleted my social media accounts, and I haven’t really been talking to anyone that much. Not as a means to shut anyone out, but I felt on my heart thats what needed to be done to really tap into myself, no distractions, just me and my feelings.
For a few months now, I’ve been feeling like I’m preparing for some sort of breakthrough. And with any blessing, breakthroughs and changes, you have to clear your space, make room and be prepared to receive what is coming for you, and I am doing just that.
It’s so easy to get wrapped up in the fast paced day to day life, of what you have to accomplish, what you have to get done, what’s happening on social media and what’s going on in your friends life, but when was the last time you tapped in and checked on yourself?
I felt that I was neglecting myself and I knew that I had to take some time for me. And if taking time for myself is not a good enough excuse for me to actually do it, I always remind myself – I wont be any good to anyone- my friends, or my family if I am not good myself.
So here I am, a few days into being unplugged and since I am introvert at heart, I am okay with the silence. I’ve just been listening to my inner self and my body and doing whatever I want to do. I’ll sit and relax and just color with my son for hours, or work on pitches and blog posts if my heart desires. I am setting boundaries for myself and with others. This time away from social media thus far has shown me how much we are actually dependent on it and how much it is used just during ourspare time. And since its been off my phone, I’m listening to more podcasts and just pouring into myself now.
It’s time to focus on our goals and manifestations for 2020 and preparing yourself to receive.
So, again- When was the last time you unplugged?
