Do you ever feel the need to:
It’s a common thread, running through online conversation. People are talking about improving their writing by spending uninterrupted time away from the computer. People are talking about how technology today is too overwhelming. All of us are talking about not being able to keep up.
It seems we’ve come back from our holiday breaks and for now, we see things differently. We start off a new year and expect ourselves to include more balance in our lives, even with technology. Whether we’re hobbyist bloggers, casual social media scrollers, online entrepreneurs or somewhere in between, we’re hungry for quiet…for less.
Power Down is part of this movement, and the Power Down team is so grateful that people are interested in a topic we’ve been secretly working on and are now ready to tackle. How do we find more time for ourselves, our families, our creative energy? Is balance possible? What does powering down look like? How does a person do it? When?
These (and many more) are the questions we’ll be tackling with inspiring and intriguing guests in a podcast with the title…you guessed it, Power Down. Every other Wednesday at 11:00 AM PST, 1:00 PM CST you’ll find a new show to listen to, right here at TheSITSGirls.com.
The SITS Girls will be your hosts, alternating hosting the show with Heather King and Amy Whitley. We’ll talk to influential and successful online women, to find out what works for them, what doesn’t work for them, and to discover with them what might be behind all of our mad-dashing to try to stay seen online. What happens when we let go?
For some of us this will mean experimenting with powering down literally: one day a week? A few hours a day? Every evening? Keeping business hours? No computer, no phone, during those times? Can we do it? What does it feel like?
Let’s get started! Our first podcast is ready for you! Please click on Power Down 001 in iTunes to listen as Tiffany, Amy and Heather talk about Power Down and its future.
Come along, friends. This is going to be good.
