I’m an avid news watcher and, I’m sad to admit it, but I get hooked on shows crazy easily. I hate that I get so consumed by random shows. This past weekend I decided to try something out: A TV-Free weekend.
I loved it.
The weekend felt longer and more relaxing and I did all of the things I usually feel like I don’t have the energy to do. Saturday I listened to music while making breakfast and took my time getting ready for work. I came home after a dinner with friends, took a bath and listened to this podcast then crawled into bed and read this month’s Real Simple magazine. Sunday I slept in and decided to spend my Easter doing some spring cleaning and doing all the things I really wanted to get done but always told myself I would do “later”. I decided Sunday was officially “later”.
I spent the entire day listening to podcasts and doing the mundane chores of a typical Sunday but I have to tell you, it as incredibly relaxing and kind of cathartic. It was peaceful and pleasant and all the inexplicable pressure I usually feel when I do my laundry or declutter my bedroom was nowhere to be found.
Maybe I’ll try for a whole week next. Think you could do it? I highly recommend it.
