How’s your crazy life? It’s June and most schools are getting out soon. Church programs are winding down. The weather is warm, the days are longer and the summer is just around the corner!
Do you still feel stressed, grumpy and like life is too busy? Me too!
I recently read a great blog post by Michele Cushatt and she put out a great challenge. Check out her summer sabbatical plans. A challenge to unplug from social media, the Internet and some other computer related tasks for June and July!
That seems pretty drastic but I wonder what we could do with that time?
Could we read a book?
Take a nap?
Work in the garden?
Go for a walk?
Chat on the phone with a friend?
Better yet meet for coffee with that friend?
Read the Bible?
Play with a child?
Just sit and enjoy the silence?
Play a game?
Stroll in the Mall and window shop?
Sit by the lake and watch the waves?
Oh that list sounds like fun to me! Things I’ve been too busy to do and miss in my life.
I extend a challenge to you today!
TODAY’S little STEP: Take a break from social media, or whatever technology takes up too much of your time. Get back to the basics. Rest your mind and your body and be refreshed!
I have prescheduled the next set of blog posts so that my blog spot is still active.
I will be taking a break from Facebook and Pinterest and using that time to rest and restore.
I will still be using Email and my phone.
Who’s with me?
