A weekend in paradise
It’s been a hell of a week! And I couldn’t think of a better time to promote a little self care and suggest that we unplug for a few days. I think we all need to regroup a bit.
Here’s my proposal:
Take the weekend off. Don’t even think of logging on to Facebook or watching the news. Unplug from the negativity and hate that has been rampant in the world. Shut off the phone. Take time to be alone. To be quiet. Reflect. Stop typing. Stop talking. Just back away from the electronics.
Read fiction … not on a tablet but, you know, a book. With paper. Escape. Go for a walk in the woods. It’s magical. Nap. Take a detox salt bath. Watch a sunrise. Watch a sunset. Meditate. A lot. Exercise. A lot. Exercise until you feel like your body is going to drop. Get the bad energy out. Rehydrate with clean cool water. Eat good food. Honestly, do whatever floats your boat, but let’s all just take a break.
And when we come back to work, back to reality, on Monday – let’s all remember diplomacy. We don’t have to worry about “others” destroying us because we are doing it to ourselves.
