Tips for "Unplugging" during the Holiday Season

Hello December!
This is my favorite time of year! Christmas is my favorite holiday and my birthday is on New Year's Eve! :) So during December I try to unplug and really focus on reconnecting with friends and family. Technology can have a way of taking over your life and becoming a major distraction. Some of us can get so caught up in the "online" world that we aren't present and fully enjoying the REAL life we are in.
The holiday season is the perfect opportunity to spend some time away from the constant barrage of email notifications and text messages and enjoy the joy, peace and magical moments that December brings! Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you are traveling during this holiday season:  
  • Catch up some reading - Grab your favorite magazines and the latest bestseller (like my #ExtraordinaryPurpose) book to make the best use of your free time. 
  • Set your tweets and posts to autopilot - Try to step away from social media and be present in the moment. Use tools like Hootsuite and Facebook Scheduler to plan ahead and schedule posts for your business pages.  
  • Enjoy the moment - As you are sharing special moments with friends and family this season, be present and don't focus on the need to instantly share every move on social media. Snap a few photos and share updates on social media at the end of the day.
Thinking of extending your social media break? Worried about the impact a break could have on your business/brand? Check out this video for some more tips.
