Friday Wrap-up: The Unplugged Edition

19 Mar

March 20th is a pretty exciting day for me. It’s the first day of Spring – yay! My mum’s birthday – Happy Birthday Mum! and it’s also been declared National Day of Unplugging.  All of this technology is a blessing and a curse. We’re more connected than ever before but at what cost? Today’s Friday Wrap-up is dedicated to unplugging for a bit and reconnecting with the world around you.

How To Escape The Cubicle in Your Pocket – The title says it all. The author also has two great unplugging rules that I’m going to adopt for myself

A New (Old) Way to Create Calm in Your World – This post is all about instilling a Sabbath into your week. It’s an important concept whether you are religious or not

Help! Twitter is Ruining My Life – I’m sure a lot of you can identify with the cycle of tweet, refresh, tweet, facebook, check email, refresh twitter….

New Ways to Make A Difference – Different ways you can do your part to help out causes. This can give you something to do with all that free time you’ll have when you’re unplugged.

Have a lovely, unplugged weekend!

Until Next Time,



Don’t Be Shy…

I’ve really enjoyed connecting with new readers and new people since starting Polka Dot Coaching – it’s always great to talk to other 20-somethings and hear what they’re up to. Apart from this blog, you can connect with me via Twitter: @PolkaDotCoach or shoot me an email: nblades[at]gmail.com. But now, as of this week you can also connect with me on my brand, spanking new facebook fan page! Don’t be shy – I’d love to hear from you!
