I am going on a digital detox week :)

Tomorrow will mark the beginning of my digital detox week. It will be a challenge to unplug completely but at the same time, if I am being honest, I have to admit I am looking forward to it.

I want to be there for the people who want me to be there in their life, to witness their life being played out.

I want to hold hands for my mom who is going through a cataract operation tomorrow and will be recuperating at my place.

I want to sit in front of actual people and have long conversations over cups of tea without being interrupted.

I want to hold a book and read it cover to cover without getting distracted by the myriad of screens that surround me.

I want to write, both digitally (offline) and in good old fashion paper with pen, without being distracted by popping notifications on social media.

I want to be there, physically and mentally, present … without an email, call or sms waiting to be answered.. hanging in the back of my head.

I want time to meditate, be mindfully present and to be grateful for this wonderful life that I have been blessed with.



Can you disconnect? and if you did take up the challenge – what would you do? or not do? 😉

  2. Enjoy the time with your mom, Arman! Every week I unplug for a day or two, and limit my time online the rest of the week. Explore your new device. I have one just like it on my side of the planet, and it’s my favorite! lol xoxoM


  3. Mom’s surgery went great! thanks for all the prayers and positive thoughts that people sent 🙂 Me.. I am finding it a bit harder to completely unplug… not surprisingly though.. I still have a few more days to get the hang of it 😀
