Flying Under the Radar Posted on August 12th, 2009 Richard Himmer
In the year 2009, it is currently vogue to be wired 24/7. It's harmful, but it is cool. Without the ability to fly under the radar screen for a period of time to recharge your batteries, you are living on the edge of stress and your body and mind are red lining.
I think being cool is just the opposite. Take an evening this week and fly under the radar screen. Drive your friends and relatives bonkers and turn off all electronic contact power from 5PM to morning. Achieve some balance by finding some 'me' time without electronics. Meditate, singularly focus your mind on something or on nothing and regenerate your batteries.
Think of yourself as a rechargeable battery. Stop the world for a short time and get off. The hustle and bustle of life will still be there when you get back.
Here's a thought: take the time and spend it with a loved one. Just talk. Talk about life, before and after the present. If you are married, get to know your spouse better. If you're a mom or dad, listen to your child.
Present tense relationships are not developed multi-tasking. You must be there, both body and mind.
The most effective way to enjoy this time is by improving your communication skills. Here are two articles on the Power and the Art of Questioning.
