Weekly Challenge 7: Be Present

Sorry for the delay, so hopping right to it… Here’s to the lucky #7 weekly challenge!

This weeks challenge is all about being present in our daily interactions. About taking the time for our loved ones. Let’s start with getting acquainted with the “do not disturb” function on our phone. Look it up if you don’t know how it works. Now, everyday before you go to work and when you come home I want you to turn “do not disturb” on. Maybe even consider setting your phone somewhere you’re not going to look at it.

Don’t like that idea? Then turn off notifications. I’ll be doing a mix of the two. Might even turn off sound/vibrate on sms/messaging. The point here is to help get rid of that temptation to always be checking your phone, and it does not help if it’s always nagging you for your attention.

So, needless to say, if you have a job where you’re on-call and responsible for any sort of critical function you should either wait on this challenge or not participate (though I’d recommend waiting). Outside of that, I hope you’ll join me in giving your family and loved ones more attention.

To join the challenge follow this link or go to my goal page where you can find it and join in. Each day when you’ve ate nice and clean without any junk be sure to “check in” on coach.me.
