I had good intentions. I packed my running shoes. I remembered a sports bra. But no running happened. None. Does walking to the ice cream place count?
I wasn’t actually surprised by my lack of exercise. Since my left leg had been bothering me a little bit last week, I figured taking 3 days off wouldn’t kill me.
But that wasn’t all I rested from. I didn’t open my laptop for a solid 48 hours. Not once. (And I didn’t even check my e-mail on my phone.) I also (accidentally) left my phone at home for most of the day on Saturday.
Disconnected. And you know what?
It was fine.
I think my brain needed the digital detox as much as my body needed a rest from working out.
I’m really bad at focusing on one task, and one task only. My phone is always buzzing next to me. I practically begin twitching when I see this:
And obviously, the same reaction is true for e-mails, texts, facebook, wordpress…
Putting my phone down, and keeping my laptop closed allowed me to really spend time with my friends and family, without constantly asking “sorry, what?” as I glance up from my phone, mid-text.
And while I might have been disconnected form the world… I was snapping pictures!
Visiting Alexa’s school (CCAD) for an art show! She’s amazing 🙂
Eating the worlds best veggie burger.
And found some words of inspiration. (Kelly, I stole this 🙂 )
My trip went by way too fast, as it always does, but I’m glad I got to go home and see my family, Alexa, Kelly, and Christine! (Christine, I will definitely be trying that quinoa recipe!!!) Lindsay, we really will meet up one of these days!
