Cast away your worries
It's Time for a Digital Sabbatical

Is routine zapping you of energy? Zapping your time with your loved ones? Are you being consumed by technology? Is Facebook and other social media becoming your only hobby?

Ask yourself these questions:
  • How many times per day do you check your email?
  • How many times per day do you do a Google search and then follow where that leads you?
  • How many hours per day or week do you spend in front of TV or streaming movies?
Now ask yourself these questions:
  • When was the last time you spent more than an hour outside?
  • How many hours per week do you spend alone with your family? Spending time with just them?
  • How much time do you spend doing those things you really enjoy (vs have to do)?
Get Outside!

Living in this digital age we are inundated with opportunities, but they all require one thing OUR ATTENTION.  The more information that is out there, the more of our time that is sucked away to never get back. And yet, with all of this available to us, we still have the same 24 hours in a day, the same 7 days a week.  Once we spend that time, it is gone, no refund!  

Fresh air, friendship and fun

Maybe it's time to make a focused and deliberate change, if even for one weekend.  The Claiborne House suggests you getaway from it all and let nature distract you, come on out and meet Virginia, she's quite a looker!
