Hello March

I just love turning the calendar page and seeing the first day of a new month arrive. February was a tough one but the last few days I have been noticing more light as I pull out of the driveway in the morning and that helps so much. And while it has still been very cold, sunshine and blue skies flip that little brain switch from grumbling to joy.

This month I am going to begin my unplugging. I found it coincidental that March 1-2 is National Unplugging Day. This afternoon, I plan to turn off my wireless and leave it off until Sunday.

Before I went to bed last night, I deleted a bunch of apps from my phone and iPad. I am choosing to continue blog writing and reading because that is something I usually do just once a day. I am going to replace the social media scrolling time with reading time and daily meditation.

This month I also want to do more skywatching. March is a transition month. The days are getting longer and I want to pay attention and be grateful for those extra minutes.

So, here is to 31 days of tuning in to life in new ways. And best of all – it’s Friday!

  1. A break from the Internet sounds refreshing (though I’ll admit that it’d be very hard for me to do). I’m excited for March to be here and for more hours of daylight, though I could do without the snow we woke up to this morning.

    Enjoy your analog weekend!

  2. It sounds like March will be a month with lots of interesting transitions – both external and internal.

  3. That break sounds appealing, but not realistic for me. I use my iPad for reading mainly, and I set a timer when I scroll Instagram on my phone 🙂

  4. Good for you! I would love to hear what you think of your “unplugging” experiment! I’m shedding more and more of my online “connections” and habits. It feels good — but I know I have more work to do. XO

  5. Look forward to hearing about your unplugged weekend. and yes! to more time for reading and meditation. xoxo.
