Interested in starting a Shabbat practice? Rebecca Rothman and Sharron Swain share these ideas and resources!
Ideas for getting started…
Plan to spend time with other people observing shabbat
Try it once and see how you feel
Read up on different ways to observe shabbat offline (See resources)
Go to shul
Turn off / Put away your computer & phone to reduce temptation
Have books (hard copy, not Kindle) available
You don’t have start going tech-free for the whole day… try starting just with Friday evening
Plan your shabbat in advance. Decide what you want your day to look like; what you’ll have for meals; if you’ll go to shul or see a friend. As you approach Shabbat, don’t leave things for “chance” on Friday night / Saturday.
