Unplug Now

If we don’t unplug from time to time we’ll burn out.

Smart Phones, internet, computers, DVRs, Skype etc.  are all great.  The amount of information today is exceptional and the fact we can via facebook, twitter and many other social networks make “friends” and exchange information with the entire world is unprecedented.

The only problem with all of this is that many of us can’t go anywhere without always being in touch and some of us spend more time in the virtual world than the real world.  We are forgetting that relationships need to be tended to, and creativity needs quiet and space.

Somehow we are finding ourselves always falling behind and spending more hours trying to catch up with all that is happening in the world than ever before.

The truth is we do not have the capacity to absorb all the information that is being produced.  The truth is the world will continue on its march with or without us.  Individually we are not that important to the world and when we take time aside the world continues on.  So it is up to us to understand that running after the information highway without a break will just get us into an accident.

Nurturing our relationships with others and with our own selves enables us to have a more balanced and fulfilling life.  If we give our selves time to relax, think and recharge we can fill more satisfied today and actually have a more fertile mind to which engage with the modern world.
