Basically, I felt isolated and lonely during my fast, but it put things into perspective. Balancing the technology world and physical world we live in, especially us bloggers and online business owners, can be a challenge. I will not be adding FB back on my phone- so not necessary to me now, but I am happy to go back to the private groups I am in for support. And instagram! I will continue to add these moments into my days though. Balance is key. Overall, it was a very productive 10 days!
Happy Valentine's Day! Hope it is a lovely one. I'll be staying in tonight with my boys (Jimmy and little Theo). I am not one to emphasize today, but Valentine's is special to me because it was also our second date. I wasn't sure if he knew that and I definitely didn't want to mention it at the time. No pressure! He later told me he knew, and tried to get me some flowers but they were all sold out, haha. We went to a little whole in the wall Italian restaurant and then watched Amelie <3 So that's why Valentine's day is special to me :)
Love and Blessings,
For my 10 Day Fast over at the Apothecary Circle I am taking a break from social media. Especially on my phone. When I first wake up, I lay in bed for an hour or so just browsing on my phone. I end up skipping breakfast and running out the door rushing to work. A lot of my time and energy revolve around these apps!
And I end up browsing and spend waayyy too much online. So I need to take this break, however uncomfortable it will make me feel.
What will this look like?
~Erasing my apps on the phone.
~Only checking my email up to 3 times a day.
~Keep my monitor off at work unless I need to use my work files
~Keep a list of alternative things I can do instead.
With this Fast, I am inviting space for more energy, productivity, and nourishing activities. Here is my list of alternatives (in no particular order):
~Phone dates/ in-person dates with friends
~Make some herbal goodness!
~Organize our place
~Work on my workshops and other Moondaughter offerings
~More dates with my boy
~Take a shower
~Make my own spa/facial
~Clean make up brushes
~Spend more time out in nature
~Paint my nails
I am still working on readings and will be emailing those this up coming week and I will keep my shop open. I am also scheduling blog posts in advance and scheduling them on my Fb page and twitter. The New Moon giveaway is on February 9th so make sure you enter! This weekend is preparation weekend :)
And of course, I am here for you. Email me whenever if you need to.
Wish me luck!
Love and Blessings,
