Every weekend I decide not to blog, stay away from internet and laptop, no Facebook and whatsapp or any other connection with the world which requires Wi Fi.
Promises are meant to be broken. Truly said in this case as I find myself glued to blogging even on Saturday and Sunday. Shhh….Saturday is my most active day according to stats.
Facebook is not on priority list and can manage without whatsapp too, I can always send a SMS if there is a need but blogging? A difficult proposal. I guess I’m addicted to it and don’t want to admit it.Â
Therefore decision taken. I will try to spare myself from blogging at least Â on weekends. Last Monday, Andy, my fellow blogger shared with me a very good habit which he developed recently. His weekends are dedicated to his daughter. He spends quality time with her and make up for the entire week. I was touched though my reason of taking break is purely related to my health and physical problems because of Â continuously sitting for long hours, like working on laptop for more than 40 min. is not all good for spine and eyes.
So it’s now or never. Today is Sunday. I’m going to unplug my glowing box, my favorite mac NOW.
Does it means I won’t like and comment on your posts today?
Is it possible ? That’s where the catch is ! Let’s see. IT’S NOW OR…..
Hey, where are you going? I guess it’s me who need a break, right? You are going to stay here so comments please…..Who knows if Â I’ll be Â like a hovering ghost here. Didn’t I tell you I’m addicted, eh?
You’ll enjoy the post I’m publishing tomorrow, which has to do with the same subject.
Looking forward to it. I always enjoy your work. Have a good day.
Well have a good break and in my opinion – breaks are essential for bloggers – I usually take summers off and that keeps me fresh – but I like your plan – and the way I look at blogging is that if you lose your freshness you will lose your essence and so to keep fresh for the long haul – and to keep it rich – draw the needed boundaries and honor them – anyhow – have a great week
Thank you. Break is necessary we all know still we all hang around here every single day. Strange but true.
Well not me – my breaks are fully a break and the first 2 or 3 weeks are hard – but i find it very rewarding to fully break – and almost to fast for it if that makes sense
Meant fast “from” it
I often think that people might have an impression I am permanently on line, but I am not. I have certain times when I am here, but often go for walks, go shopping, mix with real people. I do not stare into the TV for hours and prefer doing something creative, so i write or work on my photographs and I read a lot. I do not make rules what I do, but do what I want to and when I want to. I waited enough years to become a golden oldie, no longer the daily working mill, but can do what I want to and not what I have to.
Good that you enjoy your day the way you want to. This is the most relaxed phrase of your life.
Taking good care of yourself is the first priority! Breaks are good!
Thank you for kind words and stopping by.
Breaks to me are a myth! Everytime i think i won’t use my phone , i end up with 4 hour long breaks !!
