Is it just me or does the holiday season get crazier each year? I remember when I was little, there was a distinct difference in fall and Christmas time – our tree did NOT go up until after Thanksgiving and dedicated Black Friday shoppers started their shopping at 6 am. Maybe it’s because I’m an adult now, but the holiday season feels like such a whirlwind already, and Thanksgiving is a good 16 days away!
This weekend, I decided that I’d had enough. I got a library card and checked out a book. I gave myself this very strict rule that I needed to read 35 pages a day to be finished by the due date. I got so into my book that I ignored my phone, social media, and the outside world… I read over 300 pages in two days!
I wrote a blog post a in May about unplugging, and it continues to be one of the highest viewed posts on my site! I am taking a cue from that post and taking some time out of this holiday season to “unplug” or take a “tech time out.” I’m pretty sure we’ve all figured out what I’ll be doing while unplugged (#bookworm) – what will your tech-free activity of choice be? I’d love to know!
And while, we’re talking about unplugging and tech time outs, be sure to enter this awesome Re-Pin to Win Sweepstakes from Foresters.
I hope y’all have a great weekend! How do you plan on unplugging?
