Mondays are so much better when they start off your first week of summer vacation. This is the first summer I can remember when: I don’t have to take any classes, I’m not moving, I don’t have to sleep 20 hours a day, and I’m not driving all over the place. It’s kind of freaking me out, honestly.
I have a pretty hefty list of stuff I want to do (like go birdwatching in Sweetwater, read tons of books, and finish up the shawl I started in Indiana) and stuff I need to do (like get new glasses, for instance). But my challenge this week will hopefully get me into a routine so I can do all that stuff. This week I want to limit my online time to 30 minutes a day.
You know how it is, you get online to read email, and the next thing you know, you’ve spent 45 minutes looking at nail polish on Pinterest. Um…. not that I’ve done that, of course.
Anyway, I’m planning to do a lot on my 101 Things list, and item #50 is “Unplug for an entire weekend (no texting, phone, internet).” Since I’ve spent roughly 9 hours a day on the computer this last week of school finishing billing, doing progress notes, and other end of the year junk, this is the perfect time. I don’t have to read/ answer any work email. I don’t have to do any random moment samples about my school day. But can I go a day without Facebook? Without googling some bit of trivia that’s driving me crazy? Without checking out my favorite shallow beauty blogs? I hope so. 🙂
Challenge #13: Limit online time to 30 minutes a day AND go two days technology-free.*
*I will still use my phone to take my daily photo, but that’s it.
