I actually spent yesterday completely off-line. I didn’t use the internet even once, although I did use a non-connected laptop to write several articles while sitting in front of the TV with my spouse.
It felt pretty good. Usually I’m adamant that I need to at least check my email, because that is a huge part of how I communicate with people for work, writing, Girl Scouts, church stuff, and personal stuff. And then when I check my email, I get sucked into other things. You know how it is.
I think this is something I should plan to do at least once a week. I’m not making it a New Year’s resolution, though. That would only ensure that it won’t happen.
