Recharge and Realign - Eight Ideas for a Digital Detox

What do you do when you start to feel overwhelmed, overworked, or just generally like you need a break? How do you recharge and find alignment? What do you do to feel calm and centered? Is it time for a digital detox?

As a founding coach of The Coaching Fellowship I have the honor to share my coaching in a way that ignites inspiration and leads people to action. Being part of this community is one of the most rewarding experiences. It is a privilege to meet women from all over the world who are giving their talents to solve some of the world’s biggest challenges.

I recently led a group conversation on Recharging and Realigning. Here are eight ideas you may integrate into your own life.

  1. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and let go of what is too much. Name it and let it go.
  2. Visualize your happy place.
  3. Celebrate the little victories. Celebrate your friends.
  4. Participate in 21 days of kindness. Find a way to show kindness every day for 21 days. What can you give to others? A compliment? A meal? A smile? Help a neighbor? How will that make you feel?
  5. Change your routine. Drive a different way home. Walk on a different path. Go to a different café.
  6. Yoga, exercise, meditation. Find a way to incorporate this into your day whether it is five minutes or three hours.
  7. Practice gratitude. When you wake up in the morning or between meetings share a quick statement: “I am grateful for…”
  8. Turn off your phone and pick up a book.
