Unplug YYC - National Day of Unplugging March 9-10 2018


Last year we saw Arianna Huffington speak and she spoke of the moment (her jump point) when her most productive life came crashing down. She spoke about the rush we get from constant demands and the dose of adrenaline from getting your to-do list complete. She referred to her complete exhaustion, fainting in her home and the realization that 4 – 6 hours a night of sleep was nothing to brag about.

Have you experienced total exhaustion?

Do you feel anxious when there isn’t a demand on you?

Does your brain ever shut down or do you feel guilty for putting yourself in a time out?

“Though this is a global epidemic, the solutions Thrive Global will bring will be localized and rooted in the philosophy and ancient wisdom of different cultures and regions. In China, there’s Taoism and the philosophy of Yin Yang, which teaches us to go out to achieve and return inward to refuel. In Japan, there’s the aesthetic of Ma, about the awareness and appreciation of creating space in one’s life. In India, there’s not just the practice but the philosophy of yoga — the term coming from the idea of union or connecting with our essential nature. In Italy, there’s the tradition of la dolce vita (“the sweetness of life”), in contrast to our modern, frenetic existence. And also in the West we have the philosophy of the Stoics, based on the idea that our happiness should be founded less in our external circumstances than in how we choose to react to them. The modern science about well-being and productivity is universal, as is the need to tap into our inner wisdom — how exactly we do that is different the world over.” https://journal.thriveglobal.com/arianna-huffington-welcome-to-thrive-global-bbdaea4aa455
