Digital Sisterhood UnpluggedWhether you believe it or not, Spring is here and wonderful things are blooming all around us. Why not take a moment to take in all that Spring has to offer by unplugging for the weekend? Join DivasandDorks.com as we participate in the "Digital Sisterhood Unplugged Weekends" hosted by Digital Sisterhood. During a series of weekends throughout the year we'll take our eyes off our computers and "up-to-the-minute" social media updates and set our sights on enjoying the life around us. Digital Sisterhood Unplugged Digital Sisterhood Unplugged Did You Know: There's a National Day of Unplugging, designed to help hyper-connected people of all backgrounds to embrace the ancient ritual of a day of rest. This Spring, Digital Sisterhood Network’s Leadership, Lifestyle, and Living Well Initiative has been inspired by Spelman College’s Wellness Revolution to relaunch the Digital Sisterhood Unplugged Weekends Initiative (#DSUnplugged) to encourage women to slow down and take a break from their digital lives and electronic devices once a month. The break could be 30 minutes, an hour, a half-day, a full day, or an entire weekend. It’s up to each woman to choose and commit to a timeframe that works best for her. If you’d like to join our 2013 #DSUnplugged Weekends, check out the schedule and use the #DSUnplugged hashtag to share your plans, comments, and questions on their Facebook and Twitter pages. Digital Sisterhood Unplugged When was the last time you snuggled into a good book or enjoyed a relaxing spa day? There's no time like the present and there's no better time than the first weekend of Spring - so let's get out and enjoy the weekend. What are your plans this weekend and how do you plan to unplug, unwind and enjoy?
After the chaos of the holidays are over you may be in search for places of peace where you can envision yourself sitting quietly, enjoying the view and/or great company, or getting your mind together for the new year and those new resolutions. Here are three spaces in your own home that could serve as a mental vacation for you and your friends and family!
Below is a space we like to call “Happy Hour for Two”. A long hallway with two seats, no TV, nor any other distractions as well as soft lighting and a few wall accents is all you need. Great debates, planning, and/or brainstorming could take place here and with any kind of functional relationship, communication is key. If you have a long hallway with a little extra space you can put it to use! This is totally a "Summertime Sanctuary", with your glass (or pitcher) of White Sangria placed on the table for you and your friends, you could have an iPod docked somewhere close by and enjoy your music of choice while solving all of the world’s problems. Any outdoor area can be transformed with the right furniture whether a patio, backyard or poolside, and now is the perfect time to get a great deal on outdoor furniture since it's out of season. You can have it ready before Spring arrives. After all, sunshine and fresh air are the perfect combination to unwinding at the end of a long day or week and refueling for the next. This is a MUST HAVE to complete the aura of relaxation in your home. Steal away, if only for a moment, and relax in your own luxurious bath while watching golf, or turning to one of the all-music channels and reflecting if you are able to add a TV or radio. You can create the perfect bath-time environment by adding candles, floral accents, and soft lighting. Perfect private getaway right on the other side of your bedroom!
Take advantage of these spaces in your home and you'll be amazed how often you can escape the hustle and bustle of the world. Turn your home into the vacation spot you've always dreamed of having and feel more refreshed than ever before.
