Our last sacred spaces

Shower-HeadGoing through some old posts, and came across  this LifeHacker article. The author makes several good points, especially this (not-so) obvious one:

Ever wonder why you get most of your ideas in the shower? It’s because the shower is among the last sacred spaces where we aren’t distracted by colleagues or technology.

I feel the same way about having WiFi on-board flights these days; until recently flying time was another one distraction-free space.  For me, it’s why I’m glad to embrace a weekly break by unplugging every Friday right before sundown, until Saturday evening… it clears my head & makes me feel refreshed for the coming week.

Day of Unplugging 2014

National Day of Unplugging 2014
Take the Pledge on 3/7-8!

Sign up and take the pledge – who’s with me on this?   Before you say “no” – just ask yourself: What will you unplug for?

Do you have multiple cell phones? Take your iPad to the beach on vacation? Ever find it hard to get through a conversation without posting an update to Facebook? Is your computer always on?

Keep throwing rocks…
