Unplugging and February recap

Unplugging and February recap

What’s new:

After my public meltdown, I decided it’s time to unplug and that’s exactly what I did. I made some big changes regarding my use of internet and to my surprise, it wasn’t hard at all! That means two things: I wasn’t addicted ( I never thought I was, actually) and I was REALLY fed up with the whole internet thing. I might do a little unplugging challenge for those of you that feel similar. It will be fun, going against the grain kind of thing, but not to much of a pain in the….. Yet again, it depends on how much of an internet person are you.
PS- This past month, I only used internet when it was necessary (banking, emails) or pure fun.

I didn’t have that much of a success with ditching chocolate though, but I’m back on track now. Didn’t have much of a success with regularly attending tai chi and gym too, but I’m hoping to be back in the game soon. I ditched mindfulness classes: it’s not time for organized and planned mindfulness yet, but I started to use relaxation, colouring books and quiet time daily.

Where I’ve been:

Just around 🙂

What I’ve read :

‘Perfectionists’ Sara Shepard

Sara Shepard is my ultimate favourite young adult writer.
I love her spin on teenage life. ‘Perfectionists’ is another great novel. It’s nerve wracking sometimes, but that is what makes it a page turner! Reading part 2 (‘Good girls’) very soon.

‘Relax in a minute’ Tony Wrighton

 

Sound cheesy I know, but it contains some good advice and visualization techniques that can be useful (even in a workplace).

My favourite  blog post :

Love Thyself from Living in Mommywood

  1. Where you’ve been is where I wish I were right now. Just lovely! I’m trying to unplug a little by not checking my phone first thing when I wake up. I’m trying to wait an hour. Do some exercise, have some coffee…then check. I’m curious if it will make me less stressed. I read an article that said it’s supposed to help. We’ll see.

    1. That’s a great way to start a day!
      I hope you’ll take part in unplugging challenge. I’ve gathered some great tips and tricks to ease smartphone anxiety, because it’s super hard to just cut it off. Thanks so much for reading! 🙂

  2. I’d be interested in unplugging with you in a challenge. I use internet for things like emails, blogging and daily things of that nature. But, I hate what a time suck it can be and it cuts into quality time with my family. I’d love to limit my use and challenge myself to be unplugged. I had a meltdown myself last fall. Actually, I just want to say that your blog was what inspired me to get help with my anxiety and depression. I wrote a series about some of the things that I went through. Now I’m doing a lot better. I need to work more on my mindfulness though. It’s hard, but doing things like the quiet time you mentioned helps a lot. I’m glad things have been getting better for you! <3

    1. Thank you so much! That means a world to me :- D
      I read some of your stories- very inspiring and honest!
      I’m glad you’re doing better. And it’s so cool that we can get better together (so internet is useful sometimes haha) 😉
      Got my first unplugging challenge post almost ready. xx

  3. Good for you, it’s obviously what you needed. Since I don’t do much, due to my disease, the internet keeps me in contact with others. Without it I would never see or talk to anyone. But I’m not obsessed by it, I use it, it doesn’t use me.

    But the nature photos are calling my name, I can’t wait until spring really hits, I’m so ready!!!

    1. That is a key sentence: ‘I use it, it doesn’t use me!’- I love it.
      Hughes Syndrome sounds challenging to say the least, so in this case: thank God for the internet!

  4. It sounds like the break from the internet was just what you needed. I wish that I could unplug, but I work and go to school online, so it’s almost physically impossible. You have made some really great points here. Pinning, stumbling and tweeting this post. Happy March and happy Monday!
