Unplugging, once in a while.

Picture: doebotz.com(contributed by decuire) Get Real, once in a while ...  When was the last time you HAD to be offline for an extended period, maybe on vacation or when staying at a house that does not have proper connection or during the last flight or train-ride. Do you remember what happend to you? After the initial annoyance on being disconnected you were probably glad about distraction-free time and new thoughts that came to your mind. Make it a habit to switch off the computer at designated times during the week or for an entire week and concentrate on something real and local, e.g the bookstore, a cafe, a spontaneous attempt to visit someone around the corner or start something creative.
