Being behind a screen for long periods of time (whether its a TV, computer, or phone) can be very fatiguing. So we are committing to a different kind of diet in the New Year.
All it takes is a few minutes each day; read a book, prepare a healthy snack, have a cup of coffee (or tea) with old or new friends. Put down the phone and actually connect with who or what is in front of you instead of looking down. Engage all your senses, not just your eyes, give your neck a rest and seize the moment. Your soul will thank you.
Here are a few of our favorite places around the neighborhood to unplug:
• The Paper Seahorse is an independent paperie + makerie. Reconnect with yourself and others through handwritten and handmade experiences.
• Inkwood Books is Tampa's only full service independent bookstore. Allow your imagination to run wild with stories told on pages you can touch and smell.
• Buddy Brew is a speciality coffee and craft roaster. Stimulate your senses with the taste and aroma of the highest quality coffee beans artfully hand roasted to its individual perfection.
• Squeeze Juice Works creates with freshness, minimal waste and environmental impact, and maximum health benefits in each and every pint. Revive your body with their handcrafted organic delicious fresh cold-pressed juices.
