She is a wonderful, caring and compassionate professional who is committed to improving my physical health and overall well-being.  The one hour massage that I receive from Mary Beth every three weeks, and the e-mails, phone calls from her for any necessary follow-ups, enable this baby-boomer to remain active and energized.

50 Unplugged: Longing for the Good Old Days

Posted by: Mary Beth Braun   |   Wednesday, June 8, 2016


I'm sure I'm not the only person of my generation or those preceding mine to long for the good old days.  

In the modern life filled with 24/7 connectivity, the constant lure of a myriad of electronics and the generally super busy and chaotic pace of life, I long for the slower pace and personal connectivity of days gone by.   The exponentially chaotic and busy pace of life often leaves me overwhelmed and tired.

I find myself working continually working towards keeping up with the pace and recharging my batteries.   This leaves me asking myself the question, How do I simultaneously capture the simplicity of my youth and live life in the modern, noisy, constantly connected world?

Here are a few of my strategies:

  • Meditation and prayer
  • Movement - from a walk in my neighborhood to a full on circuit training or cycling class
  • Naps
  • 5 to 10 minute breaks during the day
  • Always having time off planned
  • Getting regular vitamin "N" - more time in nature
  • Shutting off cell phone when I get home from work


Since we all live in this modern, busy, noisy world, what strategies do you currently use or are willing to implement to bring some of the simplicity of days gone by into your life?
