Greetings Digital Sisters!
This month, Digital Sisterhood Network (DSN) is promoting digital wellness. In yesterday’s blog post, we shared tips on how to create a digital wellness plan. It was based on an excerpt from Ananda Leeke’s new book, Digital Sisterhood: A Memoir of Fierce Living Online. Click here to read the tips.
Today’s blog invites you to explore the question: Are You A Flowista? The Flowista Profile description is an excerpt from the Digital Sisterhood book.
Flowista Profile – Copyright 2013 by Madelyn C. Leeke
A Flowista is a woman who unplugs from her digital life and tech devices for periods of time so she can recharge and take care of her own needs; and encourages women to unplug from their digital lives by incorporating mindfulness and self-care practices.
If you identify with one or more of the Flowista’s characteristics, please check out the Flowista Manifesto collage below. Consider making one to jumpstart your writing process. All you need are some of your favorite magazines, construction or poster board paper, scissors, and glue sticks.. Look for words, phrases, and images that represent your definition of a Flowista. Paste them on to your paper. If you need to write some of your words and phrases, use magic markers, crayons, or pens. After you finish the collage, give yourself a few days to look at it. Record any thoughts you have while looking at it. Use them as writing prompts for your Manifesto. Feel free to use the one contained below as a sample or adopt it as your own.
