I noted in my first entry that I would share my experiences in my efforts trying to regain my digital societal freedom. Well this, is one of those times.
I just recognized that I haven't heard a peep out of my phone in days! Not because it is on silent (it isn't), but rather having turned off my notifications and cleaning up my inboxes and such, has given me some distance from the rest of the digital world (so to speak). Admittedly, summer is usually a little slower in terms of communication for me. Anyway, it has been quite odd... all the silence. Don't get me wrong; it's great, but odd none the less.
Also, I have found myself somewhat at ease knowing that I don't have that much to check anymore. But... and this is significant. It hasn't been completely simple in giving up time on the internet. I seem to find myself absent-mindedly going over the same information at times, thinking that I haven't read it yet. #Firstworldproblems for sure.
Here's to hoping the rest of the month goes well. In the comments, tell me if you have thought about doing anything to recapture your time from digital society.
Serving through love and laughter is a great way to live.
