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!


  1. Tomas, start small! It doesn't have to be a whole year, start with an evening, even one show!

  2. I am in, you are right about the freedom part with face book. Today I kept myself away from it and will do so more and more. I have to check back and read your last post but I can't believe how this has taken over my life! I have let things slide around here but intend to reread this post and the last one I missed. Thank you for the inspiration!! I will be back to post.

  3. It's a great time to start. The weather is getting nicer and the transition doesn't seem so hard when you can be gardening or out for a wals or bike ride! I am glad that you are enjoying your freedom!!
