Hello my lovely friends! I decided to go offline for 7 Days and I documented my journey. I got this ‘offline’ idea through a magazine called ‘Flow’. Have you heard about this lovely magazine?
I’ve been off social media; Facebook, Twitter and IG for 7 days now and I feel refreshed! I could of gone longer but I enjoy blogging and sharing content with you. I wanted to share my experience with you and I hope you give this ‘Offline for 7 Days’ a try. Here is my journey and what I wrote in my journal. Please let me know your thoughts in the comments. Thank you.

Today I did my yoga in the morning and I also baked some bread and made soup. I only went on my phone to see my husbands messages. I don’t feel this offline challenge will be hard to do 😜 ha ha ha. Time will tell. I’m happy I had the opportunity to do some creative things like bake and journal. I look forward to this social media detox.

Good morning! I automatically reach for my phone in the morning when I sit on the couch but this time I decide to pick up my journal and write. I had more time to bake a cake and I also did some art with Angelina.

I thought about picking up the phone and checking it. I thought about Instagram but the thought quickly left me. I’m focusing on things I need to do today instead. I would like to do my yoga, read and some art. I would also like to go outside. The weather is beautiful today. The sun is out. I’m trying to enjoy the journey of being in the moment. To be offline feels freeing. I have more awareness of what’s happening around me. My senses are being heightened. I’m also taking the time to listen more. If feels great to be in the moment. I’ve been enjoying not grabbing my phone and grabbing my journal instead.

In the morning I usually go through my phone but since I can’t because of this challenge I’m journaling more. I did well all day. Being a busy mommy helps. I do homework with my girls, laundry and cleaning up around the house. It keeps me so busy I don’t even think about my phone.

I’ve noticed that I don’t really go for my phone that often. I’m so busy with #MOMLIFE. I am doing homework with the girls, cleaning and cooking that I don’t even know where my phone is most of the time. So that’s a bonus! The only time I miss using social media is in the morning with my coffee and when I sit down in the afternoon after all the chores.

My morning urge to pick up my phone is not in me anymore. I’ve been writing more. I’ve been also reading “Life of Pi” by Yann Martel. I ordered three magazines from “Daphne’s Diary” and I’m OBSESSED with them. I’ve been enjoying junk journaling and art. Feeling really great. I don’t miss being on the phone but I do miss talking and chatting with all my online friends. Yoga is going so well. I’m enjoying stretching and yoga makes me feel so good.

Wow! 7 days offline feels great! I didn’t mind this challenge at all. I kept very busy so I didn’t really grab for my phone. I miss chatting with friends. I didn’t go into extreme baking which is surprising. I did yoga which is amazing. I surprised my self with yoga. I used my phone to message my hubby and I also used my phone to watch Youtube. Overall I feel more free and I’m I’m not attached to my phone as much as I thought I was. I enjoyed leaving my phone aside and doing other things. I also used my phone to check the time so I’m going to put my watch back on my arm to avoid reaching for my phone as often. I enjoyed this journey and I feel from now on I’m going to try and balance the time I have online and offline. I feel it’s all about balance.
Thank you so much for reading my post. I appreciate it so much. Have a beautiful week!
I really don’t know how to start this post. Sometimes it feels like I’m stuck in the twilight zone. It feels very surreal. A year ago I found a lump on my breast and I thought it was a cyst. It was on the surface. I waited a little to see if it would go…
Sometimes life can be stormy Up and down Twists and turns Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with a lot of emotions Things sometimes work out and sometimes they don’t I say things I don’t mean I learn from my mistakes I’m growing I try to become a better person I learn I move on I hurt…
I poured a lot of creativity into the pages of my sketchbooks and notebooks. I avoided any physical exercise. I know I said I would do yoga but I’m not into it. Just not feeling motivated. As we move into February the sun helps brighten my spirit. I’ve been writing poetry. I’ve been sharing my…
