Permission to Unplug
Unplugging + Mindfulness

Shabbat, much like yoga or meditation for some, is an act of rebellion against a constantly moving world. Relinquishing control, being present, unplugging from technology, quieting the thoughts in our minds — these things are hard. But lighting the candles on Friday night can be a tool to meditate on gratitude; sharing challah with friends can be a tool to eat with awareness. There is no disconnect between the healing aspects of Shabbat and the restorative aspects of yoga and meditation.
