Feeling overwhelmed and exhausted by the constant connectivity? Let's try walking in a better direction- one unplugged hour at a time.

Welcome to The Unplugged Hours



For many years, I allowed the constant connectivity that came through my phone to be one of the most essential parts of my life. 

My phone was the thing I woke up to, the thing I went to the bed with, the thing I checked at all hours of the day. I didn't realize how much it had taken from me until I started intentionally unplugging and slowly putting technology back in its place.


You feel overloaded by apps and notifications & you're looking to cut out some of the noise.

 You want to be more present to the people and plans that matter most to you.

You want to create a rhythm of unplugging that revitalizes your soul.

You are tired of doing yet another social media fast-- you are ready to figure out how to cultivate a lifestyle of presence for the long haul.

Pst... this book is for you.

But then you'll find yourself noticing a sunset for the first time in ages, or you'll reconnect with an old friend over coffee, or you'll decide to write the first sentence of that novel you stopped dreaming about but haven't forgotten entirely. And a piece of yourself will feel like it's returning to life. You'll realize then that what you're doing is so much more than unplugging.
