Creativity Tips: Step Away from the Computer

Do you remember the pure joy of summer? That "I don't have to do anything" feeling, spreading out before you in June?

I remember. And I want to recapture a bit of it. My fabulous clients all know I'm not working on Fridays this summer. Now, I'm taking it to the next step. I'm not going to be online on Saturdays or Sundays and I won't be tethered to my phone*.

The computer I can completely ignore. The phone I'll check now and then.

Why? Because it's summer! There are hikes to take and books to read. And, if I remember correctly, people to look at eye-to-eye. Conversations, waiting to occur. New recipes to be tried and shared.

Unplugging is my way of unwinding. What would work for you? What summertime change would make you feel refreshed and happy?

Whatever it is, include time outside. It's good for you. Just remember: Wear sunscreen.

*Is it a coincidence that we call them "cell" phones? I think not. And isn't it funny that I feel more tethered to a phone that has no cord than I ever did to my old landlines?
