What an odd coincidence that I read this an hour after 'braving' 45 minutes in the woods by myself without my phone! It was bliss. I stayed present and patient enough to spot the woodpecker and hugged a tree instead of sitting in it and scrolling Instagram.

Emma, thanks for sharing about your experience. I'm really glad you had a blissful walk in the woods without any digital distractions. I will try to leave my phone at home next time I go into the woods. :)

Thank you for reading Marcia! I think it's become so normal to be so uber connected all the time that we don't realize how stressful and frenetic it actually is!

Yes, it's crazy to think that my generation is the last one who grew up with an answering machine at home! Now we don't even have landlines!
