"Consciously Connecting," a new book from Balboa Press, a division of Hay House, aids those too connected to technology with insight on “How to Reconnect in a Disconnected World” to themselves and others without the use of computer screens, keyboards or cell phones.
As a step-by-step guide, "Consciously Connecting" engages readers in a weekly plan of action to unlock the secrets of reconnecting to the ‘real’ world despite today’s easily accessible, digital communication devices, recommending:
- In April, reprogram new thoughts on some old, familiar ideas. When you bridge an old concept with a new plan of action, you’ll feel your power on a deeper level, and that connection is the answer to getting a real power surge.
- In May, honor your energy by connecting to others, the earth, and the good of the planet to
- In June, reconnect to play and what was great about being a kid, being carefree and unencumbered. You may have forgotten what that feels like but you will learn how to tap into this energy!
Plus, develop healthy emotional habits, and decrease stress and anxiety with your newfound connectivity, which will give you the inspiration to lead a more productive and creative life!
“Readers will be rewarded by a huge shift in their life, engaging in the present moment with more connection and optimism,” says author Holland Haiis, a business consultant who mentors and facilitates clients to reach their goals. She coaches on the art of leadership, the value of communication, marketing strategies and how to reach personal and financial goals, and is also a motivational speaker.
Later this summer, for July 4th, Holland recommends understanding what independence feels like and how to embrace it, and suggests starting with these simple tips:
- Begin unsubscribing to a minimum of 2 unnecessary emails a day. Too much clutter clogs the mind. This simple step will produce more productivity when you visit your in-box, and you will get through your tasks quickly and be able to move on.
- Plan a play date for you! Kids get them, but as adults we forget how important it is to unplug and recharge our batteries. Pick up the phone, no, not to text, but to actually make a good old-fashioned phone call. Choose to make time for a walk with friend, or to meet for a coffee, or some other event, as you put it on the calendar for this week. It doesn't have to be a three-hour block, but make sure it's enough time to wind down and focus on the celebration of friendship.
- Continue connecting to your personal celebration is cutting back on one hour a day of television or Internet surfing. Take this hour and begin using it for something more productive: learn a new skill, work on a resume, organize your photos, or read a book, which will propel you in the direction of your dreams. And finding an extra seven hours to do anything is reason enough to celebrate.
