Unplug Yourself

Unplug YourselfI’m keeping today’s blog short and sweet because I want you to spend the five minutes you might have been reading this to do something else – I want you to Unplug Yourself.

By the time you read this, I will have been Unplugged for at least three days.

It’s one of the things I mention in the book, when I talk about finding your safety valve, because it’s something we rarely give ourselves permission to do, and it’s one of the most important tools we have available to keep our equilibrium.  Here’s a little excerpt…

“I’ve found that time and distance from a situation are both great healers.  I’ll burrow down into the sofa with the pooch for company, and a good book or film, enjoy a snooze and ride out the storm.

When things have settled a bit, I’ll put my head above the parapet and work out how to restore the situation to normal.”

I also saw a quote on Facebook by the wonderful writer Anne Lamott that explains it beautifully…

“Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.”

So I’d love you to do just that for five minutes. Just switch off.  Listen to some music, go and stand in the garden and enjoy the breeze, make yourself a cup of tea (or something stronger if you fancy it), or just sit quietly with your eyes shut and focus on your breathing.

Unplug Yourself.  Reset.  Enjoy.
