It proved to be a really rewarding and joyful experience having an evening without gadgets. We spent some time gently gazing at the awesome open fire. I certainly was more present and centred than I might otherwise have been. We spent time chatting and exploring issues that were beneficial for us both to discuss and we connected deeply. It certainly helped us both to slow down, empty our minds and feel close.
This morning I decided to leave the computer off for the morning, though when noon came, I felt drawn to have a bath rather than re-engage with the computer screen. I felt more able to follow the flow of what felt right in that moment. Technology free evenings will become a regular feature in our week :) I found this video that illustrates the point!
