The Benefits of Unplugging
Should you unplug?
You sit staring at a computer screen all day at work. You text back and forth. You answer emails. You’d think that once the work day is over and the dinner dishes have been cleared that you’d be ready to sit and relax.
The reality, though, is that most people are still plugged into their tablets and phones in the evening. Texts continue. Work emails are read and answered long after the work day has ended. Then you just have to check your Facebook feed, pin recipes and DIY projects over on Pinterest, and share the latest photo on Instagram.
We are constantly plugged into technology.
It is almost as if we panic at the thought of missing out on something important if we put the phone down. What would happen if you stayed away from social media for an evening?
Would it be the end of the world? Absolutely not.
By spending a few hours unplugged, you will find that you have more time to engage in conversation, play with your children, get lost in the pages of a good book or maybe even head to bed early.
If the thought of cutting that cord seems scary, take baby steps. Schedule hours of being unplugged to focus on your self care. For example, start with just one evening a week. Commit to this small block of time and see what happens.
Having trouble taking a break?
It is understandable. Experts say that social media addiction is real -- and it is a growing problem that impacts everything from our personal relationships to our jobs. It is only natural that some people feel real anxiety over being away from the popular social networks.

Also in Lately I've been paying more attention
We wanted to create an easy guide that is basic for those of you who feel intimidated by the wide range of products on store shelves. I have been in the skin care industry for more than half my life. It is my job to know the ins and outs of products - but it should be easy for everyone else who is NOT in the skin care field. Skin care should be simple -- not frustrating.
Moisturizing -- it is a crucial step in anyone's body care regimen. With body lotions, body creams, body oils, and even body balms, knowing which formula to choose may seem like a daunting task. You know you want to keep your skin looking and feeling hydrated and soft, but perhaps you're not sure of the differences among the different formulas.
Today, we are beginning a series to explain each of our body moisturizers a bit more in depth. Let's start with the differences between a body lotion and a body cream, why don't we?
