I survived 48 hours screen free! Actually it was . . . very easy. I did accidentally see one text (work-related) and responded to it which took about 30 seconds.
I did not check email, listen to podcasts, read blogs, or check Insta. I did not see my group texts.
I DID order dinner, listen to music on Spotify, participate in a group Zoom call (preplanned!), and FaceTimed my sister. I also used the timer app to do meditation each day sans Headspace (verdict: I prefer it with Headspace!).
I LOVE the things my phone can do from me, but it does also take away. I want to continue to remind myself that a break like this is available to me at any time. Well, any time other than when I am on call, which is not all that often.
AND the goal-focused part of me is very excited I get to check something off of my goals lists!!! Yay.
It has rained all weekend. I commented to Josh earlier today that I wished we had a grill to which he replied, “Why? We can grill inside” (as in, on a grill pan). And now that it is pouring I am actually rather relieved that we don’t have one. Our planned Memorial Day feast: turkey burgers, corn, grilled zucchini. Mmmm.
Okay, I’m going to make this a quick post because I only have a few minutes before G wakes up and I realllllly want to read more of A Gentleman In Moscow.
