With school starting soon, we decided it was time to have a “school year calendar home organization project.” Well, I decided that’s what we needed. What does that mean? Instead of cleaning and sorting a different area around the house – or move because we’ve accumulated too much stuff – we focused on how we were organizing our time.
By reviewing the hours of the day that remain after working, sleeping or cooking/eating, we wanted to structure our time so that we’re making time to do what we want. Really want.
Scheduling time and slowing down to do what we enjoy: reading, diy projects, volunteering, and down time.
For me, I need better limits on MY screen time. I have a tendency to become “Internet Girl” and waste lots of time ‘working’ but not really getting anything done. While social media comes with the territory of being a ‘blogger’ like myself, I need to set better limits.
Last week, I took a ‘digital detox’ week and stayed away from social media. It was refreshing! My brain and well being need me to do that more often.
Of course I had to share it on social media – since I was inspired by Arianna Huggington who spoke about it a BlogHer. Yes, I volunteered, sewed, mended, canned vegetables – so many pickles! – and gardened. I also read and napped.
