In case you’re dropping by for the first time, I’m having a year of challenges. Each month I’m challenging myself in a different way. I have had a month of snail mail and another of not spending.
This past month I was off social media / emails / texting for one day a week. The first day was Tuesday April 2nd. I got up, made coffee and sat down with paper and pen and wrote out a “to do” list for when I got home that evening. I work full-time so my days are taken care of. I have to say I have gotten back into reading more and a bit more proactive with housework. It wasn’t hard to not check emails / blog / text for a 24 hours period. I informed people I wouldn’t be emailing or checking Facebook. Done. Then I enjoyed my time at home doing other stuff. I mean seriously people, we always have other stuff like making lunch, meals, housework or my favorite reading. When I say reading I mean a book – paper so again no screen time.
This month I am challenging myself to read one newspaper a week. I know this sounds easy but currently I don’t read any. I was brainstorming with a friend over challenges and she suggested this one. She loves her newspapers and reads more than one a day. So that takes care of May.
I am looking for more challenges for the rest of year so if you have any I love to hear. It can be given something up, do something, whatever. It is wide open.
You can always start now!
