10 Ideas To Unplug (and Reconnect)

HomeRetreat I was recently asked to design a 30-day program geared toward unplugging from technology in order to develop better self-care habits. The goals for this project were relatively simple, and coming up with ideas that were flexible and accessible was a fun challenge. Designing this type of personalized program was a perfect way to welcome the energy of the fall season. It was rad to reflect on my personal attachments to technology, and I even took a short hiatus of my own in the process. This project definitely helped me reaffirm a healthy connection to the things that matter most in life. Overall, I loved the whole experience! It was a great way to challenge myself creatively and professionally. Today I’m sharing a peek into some of the content I created along with a few bonus resources, which are linked throughout!

  1. Read books from your favorite genre, or check out the banned books list.
  2. Cook favorite dishes, and new recipes.
  3. Make something every day that tells your unique story.
  4. Journal every morning and night.
  5. Spend time with family and friends, or send letters to loved ones far away.
  6. Practice skills you want to improve.
  7. Visit local libraries, museums, art galleries, theatres, and book stores.
  8. Walk for 30-60 minutes every day.
  9. Volunteer at soup kitchens, animal shelters, or a hospital.
  10. Create a personal mantra you can refer to─ write it down, say it aloud.

Do these suggestions resonate with you? Id also love to hear what ideas would you add to this list!

In solidarity,
