Taking to internet to discuss the importance of unplugging. The irony isn’t lost on me.
I realized a little while ago that I never have any alone time- or when I do, I’m either working, running errands, worrying, or staring at a screen. So I took some time to put my phone down and check in with myself on a solo three-day camping adventure in the Vermont summertime. It was necessary and productive.
I meditated, got lost in thought, read books, and I started writing a book.
I brought a little camping stove and ate well. Good cheese, Ardelia Farm pork chops and bacon, greens from our garden, black raspberries from our greenhouse (yes I brought a pink depression glass sugar bowl to the woods), Montreal bagels, etc.
Do I feel rested, rejuvenated, and ready to face the world?
I don’t know.
But I do feel like I have a better understanding of who I am, what I want, and how I’m going to get it. Don't forget to take time for yourself.
