Sounds nuts, right? It probably is and this may or may not be the worst idea ever but I am going to go phone-free for the next week. Reason being is that it is just a huge distraction right now with people sending me messages, getting into time consuming text conversations, aimlessly scrolling because I am bored or sad, and overall just wasting time. I feel like I can’t unplug because of the constant notifications sucking me back in. I decided to Google some info to see if going cell-phone free was a viable option and read this encouraging article that convinced me to give it go. So, it’s off as of T-minus twenty minutes ago and I feel a little giddy. I have told everyone who generally contacts me via text to email me or call my landline (yes, I do have one) to get in touch. Or hell, let’s have lunch or get coffee or go see a movie or live our lives outside of our cellphones!! My Instagram and Twitter will be a little dark for awhile but I will be back before you know it (not that my content has been super great lately). This also means that I won’t be liking or commenting on your fabulous posts but I will make up for it when I get back!! I am sure this sounds very holier than thou which is not at all my intention and I am just doing this for a bit of a cleanse and to see if I can actually survive an entire week without a cellphone. Praying to the universe that calamity doesn’t strike 😛
On my mobile hiatus I hope to; read some books, paint something, watch some documentaries, learn a new language – no, I am exaggerating but it just amazes me how much time I have been dinking around on social media, shopping, window shopping and web-surfing! What do you think? Could you do it? Let me know in the comments and wish me luck. I feel better already, actually I feel like I am probably going to have a blow-out on the way home and have to do some old school hitching but at least it will be exhilarating!
Thanks for stopping by <3
