Inside the Storm

Once the weather forecasters announce a major storm, the flurry of activity begins. We hunt for groceries to buy, salt to sprinkle, and gas to fill our vehicles. Afterwards we race home to wait for the flakes to accumulate. Once we’re forced to suspend normal activities—the magic begins. It’s those special times that wouldn’t occur unless usual circumstance push us to do the thing we wouldn’t normally have the time or energy to do. Things like this:

What’s done in the storm can be done in the sun, and the unusual can be our norm. Let’s break the technology habit. Put down the phone, the tablet, and the computer. Take time off from the bustle of your regular schedule. Studies say we’re more productive when we pause to reenergize and rejuvenate ourselves. The condition you’re in when you reach your destination makes all the difference.          

What steps will you take to enjoy your journey?
