Lose your phone

Hunter's phone decided to stop working for about 5 hours today.  Conveniently in the middle of us doing a heavy amount of digitally based work from said phone.  So that's awesome when it happens.

Actually, it provided a fantastic observation; I enjoyed relinquishing my phone's constant state of availability.  It was a welcome and unplanned digital detox which always lends freedom and clarity.  Like so many of us, I actively use my phone for many work, leisure, and organizational purposes.

Phones and technology are wonderful aspects to our worlds and although I founded a business with a high focus on digital engagement and interaction, I am a huge proponent of breaks from it all.  Sometimes I do a workout sans phone-no music or anything, or put it up and away from easy grasp, or in the case of today where I lent my phone to Hunter, I feel a sense of gratitude for remembering to forget about the phone.

I reach more for books, feel a lessened sense of general anxiety, and find my creativity gets a refresher helping me work harder when I get back to projects, planning, and hustling along.

Lose your phone more often, lovebugs.  Recharge, reboot, and stop to smell the flowers!

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Roni ate a crayon

The middle part. Perhaps like real food, is this the juiciest part? I don’t know why or what got into her but she not usually isn’t a newer or eater of non edible items. My girl is sophisticated; enjoys edamame with a little sea salt, broiled chicken, and sweet potato dog cookies, she’s not some gremlin with an anything goes pallet.

The number one thing that has changed with Roni since Pepper went to sleep would be her appetite. She eats, yes, but she’s veryyyyy particular. She won’t eat just to eat anymore. Like dogs do, she was always quick to scarf down food or treats because she worried Pepper would beat her to it. She be little but she is fierce when it comes to her grub.

                            Roni, girl!  You don't need to eat crayons! I'll meal prep for you, too!

Anyhow, we don’t love her new decision making abilities and would love it if she did not do such a mongrel thing to do. My little angel baby, love colorfully in a better way.
