Awake: #WordlessWednesday #WednesdayWisdom

“I see skies of blue
And clouds of white
The bright blessed day
The dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.”

Louise Armstrong

 

Awake- Graphitti- Beatles Ashram
I was up before the crack of the dawn. And I spent time meditating. How awake do you feel today? What’s your awake story? Mine currently is sleepy. 🙂 Location: Beatles Ashram, Rishikesh

 

Awake- Holding Delphenium
A nature walk if you wake up early is a boon. If you chance upon this tall beauty, you would possibly think it’s a lavender bush. Delphinium belongs to the buttercup family and is commonly known as Tall Skylark. Did you notice the bunny ears? Also reminds one of the dog flower (Antihirrinum majus)

 

Awake

When do you wake up? Waking early has a bunch of benefits. You seize the day like no other. But for that you need to intermittent fast with your phone/screen – 12 hours to 10 hours!

I’m struggling to do so myself. On some days I ace it, on some day’s I don’t. One day at a time! My friends who intermittent fast with their phones use them as a landline, and leave it outside their rooms. I manage to do the latter on some occasions yet, continue to be guilty as charged. *Lol*

My phone also goes on DND mode and all App shut mode, post 9 pm – till 8 am.

And then when people call they wonder why is my phone not reachable.

*grin*

Everything can wait, while you unplug. Life doesn’t stop moving. It makes way for more clarity.

If you awake early you can get a lot done. Meditate, journal, read, get some alone time, workout, prep up for the day and most importantly start your day on time.

Post my surgery the former has been a bit of a struggle, that’s why #WW is going live late. 😉

But I’m on my way to finding my rhythm.

I hope you all find your rhythm in life and awake to your inner reality and true selves.

Sending you warm hugs, love, light and laughter.

Be well. <3

  1. Isn’t it amazing that we used to wait to get home to make phone calls and hope someone will call!!! Those were slower times for everything.
    I do hope you totally recover soon and things get back to your rhythm.

    I’m happy to see you at ‘My Corner of the World’ this week! Thanks for linking up.

    1. Thanks so very much dear Betty.

      Life looks lovely going down memory lane, but I believe we must embrace what is also given to us now.
      Even though the times are tough.

      Wishing you much love and joy.

  2. I am an early riser. I have lots of things to do and very little spare time, so I don’t feel motivated to sleep. Lovely flowers, I’ve seen Rocket larkspur flowers, which are similar in appearance.

    1. Oh tell me about it, my mornings seem so busy. I love all that can be accomplished in that golden hour.

      Rocket larkspur sounds interesting.

      Hope your birding weekend was fun, Shinju.

  3. I love this song. Also I too thought it is a type of Lavender bush. Lovely flowers. I don’t think if I can do intermittent fasting with my phone. I need to but I won’t be very successful. 🙂

  4. What a wonderful life, dear Natasha! ❤️
    The flowers are wonderful! I like their scent.
    I’m not a morning person, but around 8-9 a.m. I wake up (I fall asleep after midnight). I really wake up around 5 p.m. 🙂
    I don’t like the mobile phone, but I have because others wanted to know that they can be in contact with me wherever I am. I only use it as a phone, and to receive / send messages sometimes. When I’m not at home I don’t answer, usually, and my friends know that.
    I hug you dearly! ❤️ I wish you all the best, dear friend from the blogosphere! ❤️

    1. It’s so heartening to see so many of my friends in blogosphere know what it is to keep the phone away and engage in the moments of life to just be.

      Thanks for your loving message as alway dear Di.

      I am sending you big hugs and happy vibes for a playful weekend.

      Be the love that you are.⭐️

  5. I love the song. I too have to be so mindful about using my phone.
    With the pandemic and choosing to do all our own housework, it’s a constant struggle to choose what to do. We’re now trying out a new schedule and it seems to be working for us and I even manage to put in 3-4 hours at my studio.
    Corinne Rodrigues recently posted…Bloom TodayMy Profile

    1. I hear you Cory.

      We had a wonderful schedule most of the lockdown, but mine has been a bit awry, and I am working on getting back to it.
      Will be going back to work soon, and I look forward to a certain rhythm.

      I have been tuning in to some podcasts on Spotify and sound cloud. So the screen time has plummeted.

      Working on it one day at a time.
      Thanks for your wonderful posts for #WW
      Hugs

    1. Ha! Ha! Jackie, I have become like that post my surgery. Do not wish to engage with anyone till about 8:30 am.

      I am up fairly early- sometimes even 4/4:30 am, and I love that golden hour. But some days I don’t mind sleeping in to catch up on some rest and energy.

      Take good care and I wish you good health and happy vibes.

  6. Hello Natasha. I didn’t realise you were ‘back’ or I’d have been over sooner. Good to see you!

    Our daylight hours are changing so now when I wake I’m not sure what time it is ( no clock in the bedroom) Lying in the dark trying not to disturb The Golfer is not easy so I tend to sit quietly with my thoughts in the lounge room – wrapped in a blanket.
    My phone is definitely one of those that’s off more than on so but I do like the idea of an intermittent fast from all things technical.

    My WW this week is a humorous one. I’m sure children all over the world would understand it Thanks for hosting again

    1. Awwww how sweet is your morning hour, Cathy.

      Glad you take time away from the phone.

      Just love seeing you hear. Will check your post soon. Love and happy weekend. Have a playful one. And all the best for A-Z

  7. Such a beautiful song by a truly great entertainer. We are up at or a little before 4 Am and start our morning walk in the wetlands 60-70 minutes before sunrise. Of course, with longer days and Daylight Savings Time, this means getting to sleep before it is fully dark outside. Glad to hear you are recuperating!
    Ken Schneider recently posted…Bald Eaglets have arrivedMy Profile

    1. If one got to catch the beauty of nature and the wilderness, one must try and be part of the 4 am club.
      So glad you and Mary Lou continue to do that.

      As always lovely to see you here.

      Love your walk/wilderness pictures and you know that Ken.

      Will hop over to catch them soon. Thank you for joining #WW. You can link up with multiple posts. Not sure you know as the linky is live for two weeks.

      Have a wonderful weekend. Take care and be safe.

  8. A thoughtful post as always Natasha. First of all I love this song “Wonderful World” …… it’s like my heart is singing out loud

    I wake up early as that solitude is what is needed to get me going everyday. I cannot laze on in bed after I wake up nor can I go for round two of sleep barring exceptional days when I may not be well.

    As for unplugging hahahahaa am pretty good at it. I go off mobile & SM on and off whenever I feel the need. I am yet to buy a new handset after mine got stolen so borrowed hubs which I use pretty less. So more or less am always well detoxed

    The flower photograph is a beautiful frame ….. by the 12 year old?

    Sending you lots of love, healing and warm hugs!
    Monika Ohson | TravelerInMe recently posted…Beautiful Chirp and PerchMy Profile

    1. Aye aye! Hear you on the sleep bit.

      I know you are good at unplugging. Will plug into your lessons.

      The flower frame was taken by me on the iPhone 11.

      Thanks so much. Will catch up over the phone some day soon. Love and hugs and have a wonderful weekend.❤️❤️

      Stay safe as the cases spike again.

  9. Lovely pictures Natasha.

    My sleep regime couldn’t be more different from yours! Hit the hay at 3 am and hop out about 9 am! I love the peace and quiet of the early hours and always spend time outside on my balcony no matter what the weather listening to nothing but the sea before forcing myself to go to bed!

    I consider my phone to be nothing more than a necessary evil and ‘forget’ to have it to hand whenever I can!
    Keith’s Ramblings recently posted…A handful of words …My Profile

    1. You are the best, Keith! Aren’t you.

      I hope to have a home by the seaside some day as I’ve said before. Till then I will dream on …

      Fabulousness with the phone.

      Have a playful weekend. Raising a toast to that

  10. Beautiful flowers. So delicate.

    About the cell phone. I turn my phone off at around 4pm and it doesn’t get turned on until the next day. Not much for the phone. I’m happy about that.

    Thank you for hosting the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop. It’s so good to see you.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hug. ♥
    Sandee recently posted…Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

    1. Wow! You all are just wow around your phones. Kudos Sandee.

      So glad to see you here and thank you for adding my link to your blog hop.

      Have a fun weekend out on the boat. And see you next week.⭐️

      Warm hugs

  11. Natasha,

    We put all of our mobile devices (they are linked) on Do Not Disturb at bedtime. This keeps alerts and calls from ringing through, except ‘Favorites’ calls come in. We changed our traditional landline many years ago to VoIP but I prefer to use my cell and give that number out to friends, family, doctors, … And, if I have their numbers in my contacts then I know when I’m getting a legit or spam call, usually. I won’t answer a call if the number is not one in my contacts. If it’s someone I know, then they’ll leave a message and the spammers well…they are easy to pick out with their phony messages. But, I’m with you, we all need to unplug from technology and there’s nothing wrong with the way you do it. It’s so good to see you back today! I hope life is treating you well, my dear.

    1. I’m so thrilled to see you my friend. And I was thinking I could link to your #MondayMewsicMoves, if you aren’t hosting #WildWednesday.

      Bless you my friend. Hugs❤️

  12. I’m one of those infuriating people you can never get in touch with because I carry my phone on me as little as possible and leave it in a totally different part of the house to charge over night 😉 I hope you get into a good rhythm this week 🙂

    1. I like such infuriating people. Lol!

      I have started leaving my phone outside too. And allow myself to wake up naturally. No alarm clock needed.

      Yes the rhythm is happening slowly but surely. Good to see you here Trent.

      Have a playful weekend.

  13. I love how you use the words and images in increasing our spirits and courage, speaking
    about your own experiences. And I appreciate this a lot, dear Natasha!
    Everything that makes us smiling, thinking deeper and creating a beautiful space around us
    could change the world drop by drop!
    Thank you! And I repeat what your wish: “warm hugs, love, light and laughter”.❤️

    1. I am always so grateful to you for your kind words of appreciation. Gives impetus to the words the universe has in store for me and all my friends.

      Hugs my lovely friend.

    1. Yes, that’s the lop side too.

      But there are options to have emergency calls activated on the phone too while it’s on DND mode.

      I am assuming where you live Tina, life is still slow and simple.

  14. Well, I’m in the morning. I wake up in the morning as soon as it gets light. I’m full of energy and I’m doing my job well. If I’m ever late in bed, nothing’s going right! ☺

    Have a fine day, dear Natasha!
