Ten Principles

Couple in love.

These ten principles are from Sabbath Manifesto. According to their website:

The Sabbath Manifesto is a creative project designed to slow down lives in an increasingly hectic world. We’ve created 10 core principles completely open for your unique interpretation. We welcome you to join us as we carve a weekly timeout into our lives.

Whether or not you observe Shabbat, implementing some or all of these rules once a week can help you take pause and enjoy the simpler things in life–or at least give you a sanctioned excuse to not return any emails.

1. Avoid technology.

2. Connect with loved ones.

3. Nurture your health.

4. Get outside.

5. Avoid commerce.

6. Light candles.

7. Drink wine.

8. Eat bread.

9. Find silence.

10. Give back.
