So the Hay House summit started properly yesterday and they have dropped 20 'lessons' (audio or video talks).
I have just listened to a lady called Holland Haiis and she is a connectivity expert motivational speaker person.. her topic was about practical tips for managing technology.
The main takeaways for me were;
* No devices in the bedroom! (I already do that except for special times like now when I’m lying in on Mothers Day)
* Turning off and disconnecting from devices 2 hours before bed (I’m not good at that very often), but fairly regularly I do not check sites after about 8pm
* Setting a timer when you go on social media (15 minutes!).
* Only ever doing 3 emails in a row. This doesn't work for me but I do think I have a fairly healthy relationship with my work emails. Unless they are terribly urgent I do one big session a week.
* Starting each day with 5 things you are grateful for. I do gratitude at night with my sons, When I kiss them goodnight we go through 2 or 3 things we are grateful for through the day. It makes a big difference to my kids state of mind I reckon and helps me too!
* Every morning focusing on your goals (short or long term). I don't really do this but could probably start.
* Making time in your weekly calendar for adult fun – something that isn’t work or responsibilities. Hmm not sure about this, whether I can do it with my intense parenting I do but I could probably try!
