October Challenge

We just finished up conference weekend AND it’s a new month (clean slate, fresh start), I’m feeling all sorts of inspired to do better.

I LOVE social media, I mean hello, I have a blog it’s kind of required

but…

Recently I’ve noticed just how often I’m on my phone. It’s a lot and I’m little embarrassed and annoyed with myself, that’s why I’m writing this. I want to do better.

I guess I should explain why I’m so annoyed with myself, maybe some of you will identify with me. It’s not just that I’m checking social media and being on my phone a lot that’s bothering me, it’s how unproductive I am. It’s being with my boyfriend and were both sitting next to each other on our phones.That any time I feel awkward or uncomfortable in public I pull my phone out to distract myself. That when I’m with people having a conversation somehow I find myself on twitter? I feel like I’m not really in the moment and too often I’m living in social media land. The weather has been so beautiful but I haven’t been enjoying it, because I’ve been too distracted by Netflix. It’s time to turn things around.

I’ve cooked up a little challenge for myself, and what better time to start than right now. I’d like to personally invite you to join me, you don’t have to but, it’d be nice to have some company for the next 30 days when I try to detox myself from social media a little.

My challenge, if you can call it that, is to not be on my phone when I am around people. To get outside more and enjoy the beautiful fall weather. Have my phone NOT be the first thing I check when I wake up.

I want to be more present, I want to live in the moment fully, not just partially. I want to be more productive. I want to truly enjoy the company I am with. I want to get out of the house more and enjoy the world. Be less distracted by the digital world. Life is fleeting, people and relationships are so much more important than memes.

That’s my goal for this month, less screen time, more real life. I hope that you’ll join me.

Thanks for reading!
