Ever since I discovered that the sentiment expressed in this image is true for me, I've taken the time to have a day offline every now and then. Tomorrow is one of those days. I'm not sure why it is that having an overload of electronics in my life makes me really miserable sometimes, but, as my counselor says, I should probably worry less about why something is and just take action instead. Or, in this case, take inaction.
So what am I going to do with my offline day? As close to nothing as possible! UberCoach recently lent me a stack of books in the Outlander series. I started to read the series almost 10 years ago but got tired of it at some point. I have to admit, though that I am thoroughly enjoying getting reacquainted with the characters. For the uninitiated, the Outlander stories are a little bit romance, a little bit history, and just enough smut to be really entertaining. They are definitely a guilty pleasure.
So tomorrow is an Outlander pyjama day. Today I did enough cleaning and laundry and whatever else needed doing that I feel completely ready to lounge in my pj's all day reading Book 5: A Breath of Snow and Ashes and staying offline. No email checking. No Pinterest pinning. No using time off work to work on other things. Just relaxing peace & quiet with my favourite Scotsman and his wife.
I get so very excited about these days. I don't know why I don't do them more often.
