Ken is showing good extension at the top of this thruster. Ken is doing the Whole Life Challenge and the manager of our local Verizon services. How difficult will this week's lifestyle challenge be for Ken?
This week's Whole Life Challenge Weekly Lifestyle Challenge is to shut off all electronic communication for one hour every day. This week's lifestyle challenge is meant to help us connect with ourselves and each other through actual face-to-face contact.
All too often in our day we disconnect from our real social circle to connect with our virtual one. How much time do we waste mindlessly scrolling through social media? How obligated are we REALLY, to respond instantaneously to every text, email, tweet or ping? Most of us remember a life before the digital age. Remember how we used to actually talk to each other? We'd meet up for coffee or beers and actually connect with each other face-to-face.
That actual social contact is vital for keeping us connected and integrated into a robust society. It is critical for us to connect with OURSELVES. Having some time sans electric communication frees you to be creative, productive, or meditative.
Try putting your phone or tablet on Do Not Disturb for an hour. You might find you really like who you are. Imagine that!
