Unplug To Achieve “Calmness”

Daily writing prompt
How do you know when itโ€™s time to unplug? What do you do to make it happen?

I sat at my desk, staring at the computer screen. My mind was racing with thoughts, worries, and to-do lists. I tried to focus on my work, but my mind wouldn’t slow down. I started to feel anxious and overwhelmed. Taking a deep breath, I tried to calm myself down, but it didn’t work. I knew what had to be done. So I stood up, stretched, and unplugged all my electronic devices. The silence was a relief. I sat on my bed, surrounded by quiet. The only sound I could hear was my own breathing. Closing my eyes I took a few deep breaths. This time my mind started to slow down, and I could feel the tension leaving my body.

I realized how much I depended on technology to keep my mind occupied and distracted. I had forgotten how beneficial it is to just sit and listen to the silence. Now I could hear my thoughts more clearly, and it made it easier for me to process them. Unplugging made me realize that I needed to take breaks from technology more often. It is essential to give my mind a chance to rest and recharge. That is what it took for me to feel refreshed and ready to tackle my day with a focused mind.

  1. This is what I do. I find electronic devices are good to use to get things done, but there comes a time when they need to be tuned off. I find I feel more relaxed when they are.
