Today is an exciting and daunting day.
Today I start my month-long “Tech Lite Challenge” with Laney from Crash Test Mummy.
Today I bite the bullet and actually start living and dying by my own advice.
But Before I Begin: An Admission of Guilt.
Many of you loved the recent post on How To Simplify Your Online Life. In fact, it’s been one of the most popular posts.
And many of you also know that as a writer (and a human) I’m a huge proponent of simple living, reducing stress and questioning the value of our actions. Including how much mindless time we spend “connecting” when we really should spend that time doing, being and experiencing.
But here’s the weird thing:
While I understand it, believe it, and will tell other people all about how important it is, this is one area I haven’t been able to make any lasting change in my life. For some reason, I’m coming up empty every time I try to limit my connected time. Five minutes after I declare, “That’s it! I’m going offline!” you can find me checking emails while getting the kids lunches.
I am tired of feeling out of control when it comes to my time. Are you?
If you are, you need to head over to Crash Test Mummy and follow along with the Tech-Lite Challenge running throughout the month of August.
The reasons, rules and objectives of the Tech-Lite Challenge can all be found here at Crash Test Mummy.
Do you want to go tech-lite in August? Regain control of your time?
Next week, I will report back on week #1 of the Tech-Lite Challenge and Laney will (excitingly) be reporting from New York, where she is currently living the bloggers dream.
If you’re playing along at home, please join in and tell us how you’re finding it.
