The Underrated Importance of Disconnecting from the World
To say we lead busy lives would be an understatement of the highest order. Technology and digital communication has encroached our living spaces and headspace with the widespread adoption of smartphones and gadgets. And then there is the ubiquitous nature of work which never seems to leave us alone wherever we might be. Amidst it all, we hardly find time to connect with our inner self and relish life like it is meant to be. All we have to do is disconnect to re-connect.
Taking a break from the daily routine allows the mind and body to replenish. Whether you decide to cut ties with social media for a day or choose to indulge in meaningful new experiences, a shift in scenery is essential to remain connected to one’s soul. That’s what we believe at the Tree Leaf Vantara Resort & Spa, one of the best hotels in Udaipur that provides you with the perfect ambience to disconnect with the mundane and find solace in nature.
Here are a few simple steps to take for distancing yourself from the usual trifles of the world:
Ignore your smartphone
Constant notifications, messages, emails, games, Instagram in the 21st century, we are living more of our lives in the digital world than we should. Although a smartphone and internet’s impact on bridging the distances and bringing our friends and the world together cannot be denied, it is gradually having a detrimental effect on our isolation from our surroundings. Therefore, the number one step to disconnect from the outside world is to get out of touch from social media and work. Put your phone on silent mode for a day, and give your environment the attention it deserves. You will be surprised at the things you discover hiding in plain sight.
Escape to the road
Travel is surely the panacea to all ills. Displacing yourself physically from your routine is the second step to disconnecting from stress, pressure and humdrum of everyday city life. Find a road not taken out of the city or visit a holistic resort in an enchanting natural setting where the fresh air, the clear sky, the tranquil ambience, and a wide range of spa and Ayurvedic therapies bring you closer to your inner self.
Listen to the profound silence
The sound of silence comes as a relief to urban dwellers like the first ray of the sun after a harsh winter. But discovering such acoustic pleasure is not possible amidst the noise on the road, the bleating traffic, the loud construction, and the incessant chatter at the office or at home. When you find yourself away from civilization in the heart of a forest, it automatically sets you up for yoga and meditation. The goal is to find your inner voice, your inner sanctum, and connect with it.
Connect with the planet
Away from the concrete jungles and the proverbial rat race of life, the Earth is an enchanting treasure trove of experiences and sights. A resort like Vantara Resort & Spa is probably one of the only 5-star hotels in Udaipur that brings you experiences to give back to the world and connect with most meaningful things in life. From visiting nearby villages to till the fields, interacting with local school kids to experiencing a day with the tribals and exploring the wild surroundings by yourself, participating in these little things allow you to revel in grandeur of life on the planet and, if possible, make a difference to it.
Unplug yourself from the ordinary and acquaint with the unexplored side of life and your mind. After all, that is what life is all about.
