Stress Free days
Each day begins in quiet and slow purposeful movements and somewhere during the day the speed hastens and I wonder where has the day gone? More importantly, I question "what have I achieved today". This week has revealed to me the many pockets of time that I waste.
So I turned off notifications on my phone, I was checking and rechecking the notifications then clicking the links and then time was siphoned away from me. Just turning off the notifications gave me some peace.
You know I love the internet and wouldn't live without it, but too much of anything isn't healthy. I've commented before on my unplugged weekends and my time away from the computer leads to joy and happiness. These days that have past have been stressful and busy and capturing the peace and quiet that my essence requires was important. Living a life intently gives me the happiness that I crave. I don't want one specific hobby defining my entire day.
Last night as I readied for bed I thought "what have I achieved today" and I was happy with my answers. I read some of my book, I was mindful of my meals as I ate them, I knit on all three projects and enjoyed an overall relaxed day. My day was not stressful or hurried and that was the result I was seeking.
May you all have a relaxing stress free weekend!!
