One of the main reasons why I love unplugging is how the peacefulness of nature helps calm a busy mind. With 14 miles of hiking, I had plenty of time to think about, remember, learn, prioritize, clear up, connect, and realize so many current thoughts and ideas that were floating around in my head.
Although I added more to my To Do list, I don’t consider these line items as a burden or a chore, but as an opportunity to expand my knowledge, experience the world around me, and to better myself as a person.
Below are some of my thoughts/To Dos I wrote down during this #UnplugYou weekend.
