I am linking up again this week to Marcia’s #onesmallchange challenge post.
We are winding down the year in such a positive way… making a commitment each week to #onesmallchange that we can focus on to help that new behavior become a good habit.
This week I am Taking a Step Back… backing away from my computer. A few weeks ago, The Captain and I spent a couple of days snuggled up in a hotel suite, completely unplugged, in order to celebrate an anniversary that is very special to us both. It was lovely and I was reminded that I tend to spend a lot of time at my keyboard… both online and off… mostly out of habit and fear of missing out.
So, Taking a Step Back is really good for me in so many ways. It frees my time considerably and it frees my mind as well. I have no set boundaries or rules about it… I think that would be defeating the purpose, somehow. But I know when I need a break… and this week I am making sure to take it. I am spending more time reading, cooking, decorating, sightseeing, and enjoying the leisure.
Sometimes I think that Social Media is like a soap opera, or a reality tv show… you don’t want to miss out. But, honestly, anything that you really need to see or hear will still be there when you start watching again.
