In the last few months, Dan and I have had the privilege to travel to the Great Smoky Mountains and to the Pacific Northwest. Both trips were a great getaway for the two of us.
We decided not to bring the whole world’s problems on our vacation. Yes, we unplugged from the news. I can’t tell you how refreshing it was to get away from the bad news. I felt it made me happier and in a better mood. It may have been the mountains, the beach, the hiking trails, being with Dan, but I am thinking it was from being unplugged.
If you think about it, we now have the whole world sitting in our pockets and purses with our cell phones. We also have the whole world’s problems. How dreadful.
Do you ask yourself, why am I in a bad mood? Why am I not happy? Maybe, some unplugged time might help you with a breath of fresh air. Maybe.. we need to limit our time and be more selective with our news feeds.
It is good to be informed but not inundated.
Negativity affects all our relationships.
Unplugged-try it for a happier you!
