Power off...

So my amazing friend, Sharon, reminded me of something I said I was going to do starting this past Monday. I need to unplug. I need to disconnect. I have most definitely become too focused on staying connected 24/7, and it needs to stop. My phone hasn't been turned off for more than a second in months, maybe years.

Until tonight. I just turned off my ipod, my laptop, got my clock from the other side of the room, and I'm about to turn off my phone.

I need to rest. I am sick as hell, I catch everything that comes along, and I think it might have something to do with the fact that I never truly rest. I always have some device or another within reach, and that isn't healthy. So wish me luck, and willpower. I'm gonna need it.

  1. So, how did you do? I know it will be difficult at first, but if you start turning things off and take time for YOU then you will soon realize how wonderful it can be. Those devices are for YOUR convience and should not control you. If someone needs to tell you something at 4am, then guess what?... that 4am text will still be there when you get to it after you wake up! I pride myself on not being permanently attached to my phone, yet realized the other day that some of my friends/family have this crazy idea that if i don't respond to them IMMEDIATELY that i just must be ignoring them! How crazy is that? So, enjoy your quiet time and enjoy being with YOU!
