Digital Detox

By now, you get the idea that I'm off from school for nearly a month.  I've decided that one of these weeks needs to be spent doing a little cleanse.  No, I won't be drinking lemon water and cayenne pepper.  Instead, I'm doing a digital detox.  I like to do these every now and then to get my head back in line.  I find that my phone/internet consumption habits tend to build over time, exponential graph style.  I get to a point where I can't go five minutes without plunking down in front of the computer to see if I have any new posts in my reader or if there are any new news feeds on Facebook.  And then I spend an hour with Pinterest.  I also get to a point where my fingers twitch at every red light, and I MUST look at my phone or my head will explode.  I can't eat a meal out without checking it.  Mind you - no one calls me, texts me, or emails me.  Ok, well, occasionally, but it's totally not important when it does happen.




So I find it refreshing to take a step back a few times a year, cleanse my mind and my spirit.  I find I'm much less digitally dependent for a while afterwards, and I feel like I've accomplished something special.

So from tomorrow forward, I'm ditching the phone and the internet for a solid week.  I'm going to do what Caesar Milan recommends, and Live in De Now.



Catch ya on the flipside.
