This weekend we were at our family cabin in the middle of the woods.
Due to lack of reception and zero WiFi connection, I was able to disconnect and hit a much needed reset button. Weekends like this put a lot of things into perspective, and I realized my brain has so much more clarity when it isn’t constantly dealing with new stimulation.
Realizing this, I decided to disable all social media apps from being opened on Saturdays and Sundays moving forward.
You know that feeling when you come home from a vacation and you are pleased to remember you left your house completely spotless? Compare that to the way it feels coming home to house that was left in total disarray. The difference in your state of mind is palpable!
This is how I felt being disconnected from the internet over the weekend.
I felt like my mind was clean, spacious and had room to relax while it’s normally quite cluttered and chaotic. I’ve only been back on social for two days and I already feel the stress piling up again.
Time to overall rethink the way I use these awesome/ tricky/ inspiring/ consuming apps.
