So we have come to December. End of year…again. And it’s been one HIIT moment of 2017. Many things have change, happened, revolve. Evolve!
Work, Life, Family, Marriage,…LIFE! We learned so much and gain so much information from the media each day. And to some of us, or me, sometimes we let the things we saw, affecting our inner self. Is it me, or you feel the same?
We tense to compare our life with the things people share in their feed. Example, on Instagram. Birthday gifts, marriage, romantic getaway. Man, that is a lot. And without you realise it, we wasted minutes turned to hours just scrolling down on our search feed.
Basically did nothing!
This month i decided to do some break. Exactly a night before i wrote this. There comes point when i feel like, its such a waste of time. Viewing people’s life or activities that basically, give nothing to my life. Except for the TASTY and Crafty and some Vegan Bloggers Account. Even so, i did not do anything in real life after following their posts. HA! What an idle hand could do right?
Today was easy. Monday 4th of December 2017.
I started with removing my IG app on my phone. Yes, i have another application installed on my IPAD. But since i need to connect to wifi with my IPAD, i’ll check them less.
Morning was all good, it went very easy. When normally, me and Haka would video moments and post it on my Insta Story. But this, nothing. Day time, noon, i kept my self busy grocery shopping while waiting for Haka to finish his Kumon. Not even think about Instagram at all. While on the evening, i somehow, feeling like i wanted to surf the online shops, still i did not opened it until i got home after work.
I opened my Instagram and check my DMs. Replied. Post one of my next thing to do which was, studying for the upcoming training. And thats all.
For day 1, i feel ok. I dont feel like i wanted to know or get an update on people’s life at all.
for Mental Health, this is defo a GO!
Lets see if i can finish a month for this!
The purpose of this UNPLUG Moment are just
- Finding Inner Peace – in which i do not have to imagine or fantasise a kind of life that is not mine to have at all . You know….those romantic kind of actions and..( i sound jealous)
- COST SAVING! – ok…i must say, it is very much true. I could save lots of Bytes from my monthly quota.
- Battery Saving. I normally charged my phone twice. And guess what? I only charge it once, and its now, at night.
- JUST PEACE. – Because sometimes its better to not knowing than knowing rite?
