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.
(ps - did I just say that?)
