So how did yo do with the challenge? Were you able to be screen free for the week? A few days? A day? An evening? Did you find it hard to do?
I did really well for the first part of the week and then had to check out an email that was important, and look up a motel # so I could book a room. Amazing how much we use this technology in our daily lives. I really missed posting on here!
On the other side, I found it a bit liberating to ignore my emails and face book everyday. I enjoyed the power that it seemed to give me. A bit of freedom! Funny, really when I don't have anyone standing over me making me check these things. I don't really know what the difference was...I also found I had more patience with everyone around me. I could feel the difference in our home. I also read a book, and finished another.
Here we are at the end of April and I have found I need to reevaluate where I am! To check in and see how I am using this "blessing", we call technology! Only four months after deciding to go T.V free. Perhaps I have replaced my T.V time with computer time?! Maybe it is a good idea to check in quarterly just to see who is running who!
So, I am going to continue to hold on to this new bit of freedom and not check my emails and face book every chance I get. I am going to take this little reminder and refocus. I hope you will do the same. Don't be afraid to take it to the next level. Whether that is going T.V free for the year, the month, the week, a day, an evening, maybe it's turning off the computer more... Whatever it might me, I hope you will find the courage to go for it! You deserve it!
Hope you have a bit of freedom today! I plan to!
