Weekly Update

I see my smartphone as a huge distraction. There is always mail to check, news updates, Facebook and Instagram feeds to follow, and topics to look up that randomly pops into your head. Last weekend on Saturday, I left my phone upstairs and even ran errands without it. I did the same thing on Sunday. It was marvelously freeing, and I emerged from the weekend much more relaxed. On Saturday, I got a ton done around the house, including prep for dinner company. On Sunday, I read for hours. Reducing my Pavlovian urge to click was easier than I thought. Of course, I missed texts from the boys, but it was nothing urgent, and they could have called the house. I am going to do this more often. Urging you to try it as well!
