This last weekend we were invited to our friend's lake house in New Buffalo, Michigan.We quickly discovered that we had no cell service at all which set the tone for a relaxing and unplugged weekend. Cell phones have become such an important part of all our lives but there are plenty of studies that show a direct link to anxiety by always being "on call."We were so off the grid for a few days that even the news of the mass shootings didn't reach us until we came home on Sunday. I make a point of keeping the tv off during the day but have started to notice that I can get easily agitated and anxious when I listen to the news these days. I'm not suggesting that we put our heads in the sand or ignore current events but just that we all recognize that the constant barrage of bad news is not good for our psyche or our health.
