I haven’t been blogging or ontwitter much over the past wee while and I think it was an unconscious decision to take a break, a much needed one to recharge the batteries.
With blogging, as most of you will know,it can be utterly exhausting. Keeping up with reading, commenting, writing your own posts, being on twitter, Facebook etc. also not to mention the thoughts that everyone has of “is my blog good enough”, re evaluating the reasons why you blog and then remembering that it’s for you and anyone else reading it is a bonus.
One thing that I’ve noticed since my break is that my productivity has gone up and I’ve finally had shelves put up in the living room which have been sitting there for months(pic included), I’ve done some baking and tackled a few other Pinterest projects. Such as this one, a cinnamon bread,
However, I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not the blogging which is really the issue as such but this damn iPhone and all of its apps. Someone had written a post earlier this week and said that we spend so much time on our phones and gadgets and I realised this last night when I was on my phone, husband on his tablet and daughter in her sim free gadget. I had to stop us all and say “look at us”!
So today I am leaving the phone at home. It stresses the life out if me and I need more days of less stress and more relaxation! Imagine if we all did this? Certain companies would be hit hard almost immediately… And that would only be for 1 day of people putting down their phones.
I have forgotten my phone at home before and once the initial realisation sunk in and the twitching stopped,I realised that I was going to survive and be ok… The world wasn’t going to end just because no one was able to get
hold of me immediately.. So here goes… Oh and here are some pics of what I was doing whilst on my break…
