    • Hello, listeners from sunny Arizona!

      • Stacy is loving everything about the southwest, except the internet connection
      • Matt and Stacy were in Sedona when this episode was recorded
      • This stop along their trip has been a great rest and restore spot
    • This week will just be a check-in show since Stacy is having some trouble with the internet reliability
    • There is a topic on the docket for episode 363 that both Stacy and Sarah are super passionate about and incredibly excited to discuss and share with listeners
      • They don't want to record this epic discussion with the chance of the internet going out mid recording
    • Sarah is about to head to the mountains for a family camping trip
      • Sarah's mom is in town and will be joining them for a trip to the mountains
      • They will be escaping the heat, internet connection, and cell service
    • Sarah and Stacy chatted about screen time limits
      • Sarah's husband suggested that she give the time limit features a try but Sarah passed
      • Stacy tried them for a little while when she was still working
        • She set the bedtime feature which was helpful
      • Sarah does use the 'do not disturb' feature on her phone to set boundaries on her time
    • Stacy reminded listeners that if you have been busy working all summer, that simply turning your phone off is a great way to create time to recharge
      • You can even set up your 'do not disturb' feature so that certain people (spouse, kids, etc.) can still reach you via phone call
      • Stacy thinks that having those occasional breaks from your internet is really special
    • Let it be known, Stacy does not like sand.
    • Matt, Stacy and the kids rode ATVs in the desert and had a blast disconnecting and being in the moment
      • Disconnecting is such a great and truly easy way to reconnect with those you love and to fully live in the moment
      • Ask yourself what you need and what really matters and make more time for these things and people
    • Sarah gives talks at business conferences and shares on work-life balance
      • Sarah shares the research on how much you can get done when you take breaks for movement, manage stress, and get enough sleep
      • The very information she shares is a great reminder to Sarah on how and why to take digital media detoxes
      • The mountains are very restorative to Sarah for many reasons, but especially because of the digital downtime the getaway provides
    • Matt and Stacy's boy's first interaction with a cactus
    • Sarah is going to be an American citizen in a week!!
      • She passed her test

        • Sarah worked so hard to pass this test and ultimately over-prepared for it
      • On July 29 she will take her oath
        • By the end of that ceremony, she will have her documentation showing she is an American citizen
      • Sarah's husband will have his ceremony on his birthday
      • Sarah shared on why this is such a meaningful moment in her life
      • America's naturalization process is really unique and special
