Sitting at a sewing machine gives you lots of time to think : ) My thoughts have now turned to modern technology, and how easy it is to be distracted by things. Every 5 minutes I feel the need to check my email, or to see the latest Facebook status updates, or catch up on some blogs. When do we find time to be alone with our thoughts when there are so many other things competing for our attention?
This brings me to the 'Keep it Simple' challenge : )
Can you give up your technology fix for one day? For me, it will be the laptop. For you, it might be your mobile phone. Or the TV. I haven't had a TV in my home for the past few years and it's been great, but I fear my addiction to my laptop has just replaced the time I used to spend in front of the box....
Anyhow, what things could you do instead of sitting in front of a screen? You could:
- Read a book.
- Do some gardening.
- Take a bath.
- Play a board game or do a jigsaw puzzle.
- Cook dinner, and eat it at the dining room table.
- Go for a walk.
- Visit some friends.
- Work on that craft project you've been meaning to finish for months.
I'm going to do the challenge tomorrow, but you could pick any day. If you decide to have a go, I'd love to hear what you did in the comments section below.
Good luck and have fun : )
