My New Goddess Habit: Unplugging

Goddess Habits

Yesterday I sort of unplugged for about half and hour or so. I didn’t check my phone (ok maybe a little bit) or open my laptop. Instead, while Jaxson watched some PBS Kids, I sat on the couch with my  2012 Creating My Goddess Year workbook and my little notebook where I jot my blogging ideas.

I really didn’t plan to unplug. The past few days my sinuses have made my brain all cloudy.  I haven’t been able to sleep at night because I can’t turn off my brain. All these ideas rush around and keep me up. Add a little of insomnia to that and getting up super early (for me) to get Sophia to the bus stop in time. I just couldn’t concentrate well enough to read a book, write a blog or even answer emails.
I thought I would tackle all those ideas racing around in my head. Maybe I could actually get some sleep. Even though I’ve worked on several pages in my 2012 Creating My Goddess Year workbook, there were more pages I had yet to explore. I flipped through my workbook aimlessly because my sinuses made it hard to concentrate.
I randomly stopped on a page. My Key Goddess Habits was written at the top. I’m telling you, I think the universe was trying to tell me something when I found this page. As I read Goddess Leonie’s 10 Goddess Habits, I thought, I need this. She even includes a tip sheet on how to create your own list.
Goddess Habit #9 switch off to focus and #10 switch off at least 30 minutes before bed resonated with me. They were my AHA for the day. I needed to sit down and focus on my thoughts. Unplugging to focus and write them down would help me sleep. Putting away my electronics before I went to bed would help me sleep. Usually I work late into the night until I’m exhausted or I notice how late it is so drag myself to bed. There’s no downtime for my brain.
I’m creating a wind down Goddess Habit for my brain. I’ll turn off my computer, hide my phone, and snuggle up with a book or chat with hubby about his day. My brain needs to transition from work time to relaxation time to rest time.
Every time I flip open Goddess Leonie’s 2012 Creating My Goddess Year workbook, I get a new AHA. Her colorful workbook pages help me see what I’m doing in a different light. Read more in my review on Cup of Creativi-Tea.

The 2012 Creating My Goddess Year is a PDF download and is $9.95. I took my printout to an office supply store and had it wire bound for about $4. You can also purchase a 2-workbook or 5-workbook package to share with your friends!
