How would you spend a practical pause?

I’m looking to try a little experiment.


With all this time at home, have you actually gotten distraction-free “Me-Time”?

Didn’t think so.

Since the order to shelter in place came through, my spacious, reliable, daily routine has vanished. Instead, it seems I’m scouring news and social feeds, and I have a FULL house of people and pets.

As a result, household chores and disruptions are steadily climbing.

I created Practical Pause coworking calls as a way to add sanity back into my day while creating intentional space for attending to what matters–whatever that looks like.

Join me for weekly virtual calls via zoom. Dates and times are here:

This is a place for all of us who need a protected space to be grounded, supported, seen and celebrated –and get our stuff done. Cause, y’know, intentional doing is powerful and sooooo satisfying.

Oh, and it’s FREE.

Learn more about weekly coworking sessions here. (And don’t let the term “work” throw you. This time is not obligatory or arduous and I guarantee you won’t be watching the clock.  More likely you’ll wonder where the time went and want more.)

There’s no obligation. Just show up on the dates that work for you (but please be prompt).

What is Practical Pause Coworking?

It’s a break from the noise. And it’s a way to take care of yourself.

Here are some ways you can use your practical pause:

  • Organize yourself without distraction of news, social feeds and inbox inundation
  • Organize your planner, or plan your next hike
  • Clean your desk, closet, kitchen drawer
  • Send thank you notes
  • Journal, create poetry, write articles
  • Stretch, daydream, cat nap
  • Meal plan, exercise, meditate
  • learn something new
  • color-code your bookshelf. Seriously, the topic is entirely up to you and there’s no judgement

 
How does it work?

  • We dial into zoom at a designated time: https://zoom.us/j/5821078665
  • We share a declaration of how each of us wants to spend the time
  • We do a grounding practice
  • We put ourselves on mute
  • We do the thing that’s asking for our attention –from mundane to profound
  • At the end of our time (say 60 minutes) we share how we did and declare any follow up intention
  • We leave the call feeling satisfied. We take that new bounce in our step into the rest of our day.


Practical Pause is space for you to

  • Overcome the temptation to take care of everyone else’s needs and get to your own stuff.
  • Harness the power of community as you put some wind in your sails and establish a powerful, new routine.
  • Tune in, do great work, celebrate and be seen. And then, do it again.
