Yesterday, I stayed strong! I had my ‘electronic-free-Friday!’ instead of just my typical Facebook free Friday. And it was GREAT! I got amazing things done, and Luke got to see me struggle, but over-come my addition! LOL That’s exactly what it is, ya know? Addition to instant information, and updates, and pretty much addition to time-wasters! Although I did have to ask him to hide my phone & ipad, he saw that I conquered! He got the BIGGEST KICK out of getting to hide it from me. (Ah, the things that 6 yr olds think is amusing!)
So today, I feel refreshed. I am rejoicing this morning at what I accomplished yesterday, even if it was just snuggling with Luke in bed! Yesterday was a success!
Before nap, we each grabbed a book, read quietly for about 15 minutes, and then took turns sharing about what we read! It was SOOOO much fun that I honestly think it’s something we will do periodically! He thought it was neat for me to listen to him retell his story, and I thought it was neat to share with him about having faith, which was the topic of my reading.
I had time to lift weights, and work out a little! I cleaned out, and organized!
Just like a good cleanse for the body, I think doing without for a while (even if it was just 24 hours) helped me understand the proper balance I need.
Facebook is something I use for my business, not just personally. I have over 700 scentsy reps in my downline, and have had 1,200 at one time… Facebook & email help all of us connect and network. But I find this morning, I seem to actually ‘hear’ time creeping away in that other room as my son plays, waiting on me.
So I manage my FB time more wisely this am. This isn’t something I normally do well. Normally, I waste so much time on Facebook just scrolling through stranger’s posts and pictures. Not this morning! Today, I got on to do JUST the things I need to do, and shut it off. Did I feel sad about missing out on that extra 15 minutes of ‘playing’? Nope, today, it actually felt unnecessary. But just a couple of days ago, it felt like “relaxation”!!!! My, what a cleanse helps you see!
Same idea with the T.V.
Yesterday, Luke and I cooked together, played together, and napped together! But here’s the UNEXPECTED PART: I GOT MORE DONE for my business yesterday, than I have in weeks. Things I usually pay my assistant to do, I found I had plenty of time to tackle yesterday.
I am so exciting about my results, I plan to do it again soon… Why don’t you try it with me??
I’m proof…. you CAN live without your phone, computer, iPad and more for a day.
