Here’s an excerpt from the Oola Guys:
Challenge 3: Family
Have you ever felt like your presence is a present? It’s the feeling you get when gratitude overwhelms you because somehow you know you’re exactly where you’re meant to be with the people you’re meant to be with. You don’t feel pulled by something else or distracted—you just feel pure joy. These are the moments you’re so engaged with others that time seems to stop, and you wouldn’t really care if it did.
These moments seem to be increasingly rare. Social media steals our focus; alerts and notifications interrupt our interactions; and work obligations never stop running around in our mind long enough for us to appreciate the present moment.
Today’s #OolaYLChallenge is to put down your phone for three hours.
Ok. Let’s get real, people. I need to do a LOT of work on this one. But…that’s why they call it a challenge, right? 21 days of change, day 3…F is for Family. And, I just started a new position in my day job this week….so, things are really unpredictable for me at the moment. My goal over the next few weeks is to really study a daily “battle rhythm” (Army talk) and find a way to carve out some protected daily time to be offline putting my words into action.
Stay tuned on this one…
